(1) How do you extract frames? Any softwares that people already have can do so easily? Nikon 1 system has the so called "motion snapshot," a feature built into the camera that basically automates this process. If GH4 does not have this, how likely it is for people to go through hundreds of frames just to find the one they want? In other words, wouldn't it be easier to just fire off a few still shots as we are doing now?

(2) Videos are typically shot at slow shutter speeds to match the frame rate to create smooth motion bur. How easy is it to find from many many frames the one that not only captures the movement but the subject is frozen and in sharp focus? There is no point of shooting things that don't move with a high burst rate in the first place.

Here's a video from a Canon shooter using the 1DC which also does 4k video...but costs $12,000 us dollars...showing how he uses Adobe Premier Pro to extract still frames from video:

There is already software to accomplish this...just do a google search. But aside from that, more software will be created to enable this as 4k becomes more and more prevalent.

I know how to extract frames from Quick time, iMovies, etc, for example, being there done that, and it is a time consuming process. To make this feature truly useful — to replace still — the software has to be much much more user friendly. Nikon 1 has a hardware solution to this, although most of the people here laughed at the 1 camera simply because of its use of smaller sensor.

You know that it can be very easily done in Photoshop, right?

* Open video file and scroll to frame in timeline;

* Select all;

* Copy;

* Open new file;

* Paste.
