    I was taking some photos for a customer today (JPEG+DNG) and thought of getting some video as well, like I would in a GoPro camera, but couldnt do it.
    Looks like the feature is not existing, but definitely useful and would be valuable to have added in future firmware updates. 1080p + JPG+ DNG should be possible?

    It's not possible to take photos while shooting video.

    You can capture photos from a video but it's not the best and adds some work. But it would be nice to do both at the same time. Never been possible with any DJI camera.

    RAW photos ideal, JPG minimum case scenario.
    Would RAW while video be technically possible?

    Yes. Cameras such as the Panasonic Lumix GH4 allow you to take still photos while shooting $K video.

    I am new to the Phantom 3 and this forum, is there a suggestion box to request features like this?
