I looked in the manual (which is available online, by the way, don't have a link handy, but see pp 22/27/96 in the E-M10 manual). If I am understanding correctly, it appears there are two movie+photo modes. Mode 1 does not interrupt the video but is a little lower quality (medium quality JPG, it looks like), Mode 2 interrupts the video while the shot is taken, then resumes recording in a new video file as soon as the shot is written to the card. Mode 2 supposedly results in a higher quality photograph. I hope that answers your questions.Great. Thanks for confirming the capability that the OMD and E-M10 can take pictures while shooting video and the picture-taking will not interrupt the video shoot. I am hoping that holds true for the E-M1 as well.
Do you know the quality/file size of the photos when they are taken while shooting video? Can you choose a quality/file size to take photos with?
I just searched the manual for the E-M10 and E-M1! Thanks for the idea: Had not thought of it. It appears both cameras have different instructions when taking pictures while shooting video.I looked in the manual (which is available online, by the way, don't have a link handy, but see pp 22/27/96 in the E-M10 manual).
