    My G5 will allow me to shoot photos while shooting video, which is a cool feature.

    I recently tried that with a friend's GH3 and everytime I hit the shutter, it took the photo but stopped recording video.

    What am I doing wrong? I want the video to continue recording uninterrupted and be able to capture some stills as well.

    Page 183 of the US manual says it will work, but not in Movie recording mode. So switch to Manual stills mode or some other stills mode, use the red movie button to start the video, and you'll be able to shoot stills by pressing the shutter button.
