    When you're in video mode with a Vision + can you hit the still camera button and take a photo and keep on going with the video, or do you have to switch off the video before you shoot a still shot?

    Thanks

    Video recording has to be stopped to take a 12 MB still shot. If you want or need both simultaneously, record video and extract a still frame later. Not very good on a P2V+ (1 MB stills) but quite usable on a P3P recording video in 4K (4 MB stills). Good enough for web and small prints. :cool:

    You have to turn off the video, then take your still shots. Alternately, you can screen grab stills from your video. ;)
