    Yup but how it's done will depend on our video editing software.

    It can also be done using VLC. It is called a snapshot.

    If you record video in 4K, the resulting still image jpeg frames will be 4x larger than from 1080p video. Another reason the P3P is the way to go, and why DJI is putting all its resources into P3P production, instead of P3A! 4MP jpegs instead of 1MP! Clean them up in LightRoom CC 2015, including the new Dehaze tool, and you'll have thousands of images per flight to pick keepers from, even if you never use the fabulous 12MP RAW shooting capability!

    Dehaze is an awesome new feature, perfect for P3P aerials!
