Hero 5 Black - error in user manual (Photo + Video mode)

Hello,

 

Is there an error in the user manual for the GoPro Hero 5 Black?

https://gopro.com/content/dam/help/hero5-black/manuals/HERO5Black_UM_ENG_REVC_Web.pdf

 

On page 39 it states:

 

"VIDEO + PHOTO

Video + Photo captures photos at set intervals while you record video. The default settings are 1080p30 Wide, with the interval set at 5 photos per second. Photos are captured at 12MP with a 16:9 aspect ratio."

 

Surely the text in bold should be "5 seconds (interval) per photo", or is the camera really capable of taking a 12MP photo every 0.2 seconds while simultaneously recording full HD video?

 

Thanks,

John

Re: Hero 5 Black - error in user manual (Photo + Video mode)

the minimum is 5 sec a photoin video mode taking a caption off the HD1080 frame not a 12MP photo.

 

IMO  How I see it
