SX60 -- Taking still photos while videoing?

Hi all--

With my SX10 and SX30 I often would hit the photo trigger while videoing to capture stills.  Naturally the stills were much hugher resolution the the video.  I got a lot of great stills this way and still had a good video to boot, albeit with a few interruptions.  (The video picture would either freeze or go blank for a few seconds, I can't remember which.)

 

With my SX60, hitting the photo trigger while videoing simply turns off the video.  How can I take still photos while videoing with this camera?  

 

Thanks

 

Steve

Hi Steve,

 

Thanks for posting.

 

When the PowerShot SX60 HS takes a photo while shooting a movie, the movie is interupted and must be restarted by pressing the movie "Start/Stop" button.

Hi Richard, I have the SX50 - great camera! - I just d/led the SX60 Manual and it has this "Auto Mode / Hybrid Auto Mode" is this similar to to the SX50 Movie Digest where I can just hit the Red Button, it takes a single pic and auto returns to Video capture?

Is there a way to take a photo without disrupting the videoing (or while videoing at the same time)?

 

The Power shot sx50, you can video and take photos at the same time, but you can't do that on the 60, why not? Is there a way to save a frame from a video later on? (either on the camera or on a computer)

Hi StuffedShell,

 

Thank you for posting.

 

Any video editor should be able to grab a frame (or more) to use as a still image. The resolution will be the same as movies, but should be fine for sharing, posting online, etc.
