    I may be wrong but I was under the impression I could take pictures while I am also recording video? If so is there a setting or explain to me how. I did not get any pictures that showed on card when I tried it. P3A

    Well, you can always take pictures after from the recorded video, by saving out a still frame. However, if you want to do that, it is best done with the P3P recording in 4K, as the still frames are 4MB, instead of only 1MB from your P3A recording in 1080p. Unfortunately, to take any 12MB RAW stills, you first have to stop recording video. You also lose FPV during the capture for a second or two, which can be a little disconcerting.
