Did you even read the OP? Sure, you can shoot photography at any setting you want, just like any other camera, including high speed burst, but the OP was claiming you can shoot video and extract the stills you want.

>Eventually cameras will only shoot video and you'll be pulling frames.

Do you know any serious video work that was shot at 1/8000th? Ever seen any video shot at 1/10th?

My point is, you optimize for the video work, or you optimize for photography. Most of the time, those aren't the same settings. You pull frames from standard video, they look like sh*t due to motion blur using standard settings.

You really want a camera that only shoots video? What are YOU smoking?

So, lets figure this out. 30 FPS should be shot at 1/60th shutter speed.

WTH??? The camera can use a 1/8000th shutter speed and high speed burst shooting at 12 fps up to approx. 40 (including RAW). So 40 16MP RAW images a second.

As for video, if you are shooting in slow motion (and it can shoot at 96 FPS for video), you really want to use a super fast shutter speed and nothing slow like you said.

Exactly my point. Video and stills s/b separate functions, because what you want the video for and what you want the stills for may contradict each other.
