Re: The problem with grabbing a frame from a video

All that being said, If one has an intention going in of grabbing stills from video, no reason why not to fire away at a high shutter rate so the blur effect is elmininated. If we can grab a nice 4k frame from a high speed action sequence by using video we have another tool to help us achieve this goal. The gh4 is a great versatile tool that can help us achieve both our movie and stills vision.

Personally I am having a blast with this camera.

If the GH4 uses the electronic shutter during filming, aren't you limited to whatever that speed is? don't you need the mechanical shutter to get really high shutter speeds?
