    Gx1 has a setting to switch from photo to video priority and vice versa . Does anyone know what happens when it is set to either one ? Is it important?? What if you forget and take some photos in video mode??:confused:

    It's a personal preference. Photo priority puts the priority on the photo shooting a limited number of full res shots while recording video. The number of shots captured is dependent on the camera model however the video gets paused for about 1 second per still frame captured.

    Video priority shoots 2mp still frames with out pausing the video. The number of shots captured is dependent on the camera model however the video does not pause per still frame captured.

    I you use Lightroom you could easily pull 2pm frames all you want so I suggest Photo Priority.
