Still pictures while recording with GoPro Hero 8?

Hello,

 

I currently have the Hero6 black and one feature I had on an older gopro was the ability to take pictures while video recording.

I lost that feature with the Hero 6.

 

Is that available on the latest model Hero 8 (or Hero7)?

 

Thanks

AMbrella chip allowed us that , GP-1 does not, you will now do grab a photo in the app or editor.

hi,

I do not miss this feature.

if you film at 4K or 2.7K you will be able to take very good snapshoots (high quality) from the frames.

hope this helps,
