I've just convinced myself that the ability to capture 8.2-8.8 megapixel stills from the video footage is worth the bump in price for me.
4K video would allow much better quality frame grabs than the P2V+ could manage.Would extracting photos from video yield much better results than taking actual photos?
I finally admit, I did it also for that nice shiny golden stickers. It was worth the price!Come on guys quit trying to justify it, I got it because of the gold stickers. I'd have paid $500 more for them.
TonG, like you I am a photographer but I have absolutely no videographer experience, but it's still an advantage understanding light, exposures, and composition. After watching the DJI presentation and listening to the lady who spoke, I realized what the real value is - the ability to take stills from an otherwise unavailable perspective! I've been working on my video skills, though...I finally admit, I did it also for that nice shiny golden stickers. It was worth the price!
But on a nice second place came the possibility to extract the 4k single frames for use as pictures.
I'm a photographer and not a videographer and off course the raw stills are the most important, but having that extra possibility...
As far as I know this is not possible.Will it be possible to snap high quality still images while also recording video? Some of my video cameras have this capability. It offers the best of both worlds.
