Here’s a neat GoPro feature that you might not know about: the GoPro actually has a setting where you can take video and still photos simultaneously. No, we’re not talking about pulling low-res stills out of video. We mean actually snapping high-res stills at an interval while shooting video.
The trick was revealed (to those of us who didn’t know it until now) by the folks at lynda.com who are presenting it as an excerpt of a comprehensive course on GoPro fundamentals. It’s super simple to set up and we could see this coming in handy in many situations, so check out the video above to see how it’s done.
