    Guys,

    What is the best way to shoot video but have the GoPro periodically stake stills as well? Cheers

    Yup.
    1080p@30fps and protune off. I set mine to 5 sec intervals.
    Also, the setting wide/medium and narrow will determine the megapixels. Off the top of my head, I think its 7mpx wide, 5mpx medium, and 2mpx narrow.

    The only draw back is that you lose the higher resolutions and higher fps. In my case, I love 1080p@60fps

    Right so there is no way to be capturing 12mpx stills with the H4 (which is I think max res when in "still" mode") along with video? booo

    Isn't pulling a frame from a 4k video already close to an 8mp still?

    Don't know. The 3+BE does 4k at a whopping 15fps. Its so freaking good that I don't know why Gopro ever decided to feature it.
