Two features missing on the Hero6 which was on the Hero5

Two features missing on the Hero6 which was on the Hero5:

 

"SAVING A VIDEO FRAME AS A STILL PHOTO" in the playback menu."

 

"VIDEO + PHOTO -Video + Photo captures photos at set intervals while you record video. "

 

These options can only be found on the Hero5 which uses the great Ambarella SOC...

You can grab a photo from a video in Quik.

Vid + phot was removed on the Hero 5 Black if not mistaken and the answer from Gopro's team was  consumer did not want it. and sure enough they were not telling the truth. it is a excellent feature and one of the things I enjoy.  I  like it and happy my Hero 5 black has it. for me.

In reality I think it's beacause of the new GP1 chip not implementing such a possibility in the hardware.

Sure, I can grab a photo i any NLE after the fact.

 

But that is not the point here.

Agree with a better  chip and a newer model  it will down the road be worked back in to the camera. the  Feature they may call it is Dual recording.  I am sure it could have been left in but also maybe the Agent slipped  while she   was talking  with me . who knows?

 

Frameshots may be better when you're panning while  vid + Photo will blur with movement.
