Mpix I politely disagree. You can easily extract/harvest 8mp stills from 4K video or 4K Photo.
It's just that with 4K photo I can deliberately set the shutter to 1/1000 or 1/3000 etc. before beginning
the video....yes this means that a true video made from the 4K Photo will look like crap but the frames
will be fine assuming the shutter you select is appropriate for the lighting. It's not only selecting shutter
but all the other parameters as well.
There is no difference in my experience harvesting from either. Just with 4K Video you are bounded by the
exposure constraints of the video.
Maybe I'm missing something? I don't pretend to know all about extracting stills but I have done it in both
MedMan, I will defer to you on this; I think you have more time behind the wheel with the FZ1000 than I did. In my experience I couldn't shoot good action video and pull good stills from it. Very possibly that was me doing something wrong though.
