Canon 6D Mk II Extracting Stills from video frames IN CAMERA: not in post production processing

[ Edited ]

Is there some way I have yet to discover to extract jpgs as still images from video shot on the 6D Mk II, or is it only possibly post production in Photoshop or equivalent? 

On a video shot on a Panasonic Lumix for example, pausing video on a particular frame, then gives you the option to extract a still from the pause frame.

Greetings,

You cannot do in camera frame grabs from video (regular or time-lapse) on the 6D2.

 

This feature is available on the 5D4 and higher 1D bodies.  

 

You can use the EOS Movie Utility to capture images however (post production only).

There does not appear to be a provision to grab a single frame.  You would have to do it in post.

Thank you - as I had guessed! It would be a nice-to-have feature when they upgrade the software...

I have downloaded the EOS Movie Utility, and using the EOS Utility transferred an MP4 movie file from Canon 6D MkII to my p.c.

However the Movie Utility will not upload that MP4 file, which seems odd, given that it is Canon software and the MP4 file format is also from a Canon camera?

Any idea what's going on there?

If you are trying to upload files from your PC to the camera, not only are you prohibited from doing that, but if you write files to the memory card using a card reader on your PC, then the camera should recognize, or see, those files.
