    I know that some Gopros can snap pictures every 5 seconds or so WHIL taking 1080P video.
    Is this an option with the P2V+??? I'd like to shoot photos while I film. Any suggestions are welcome.

    Thanks,

    Wow! I just did a search on this very topic. I have basically the same question. Can you press the picture button while shooting video and get a picture without interrupting the video in progress?

    I just grab photos from the video in post processing.

    On the P2V you cannot shoot photo's and video at the same time...
    Since the software is the same, I would assume that you need to chose one or the other.

    No the software has no option to shoot stills as you video. The work around would be taking a screen cap of the video which does come out nice but still not quite as good as a straight pic.
