Re: TG-5 cannot takes pics whilst recording video

When first tried the camera in the store, I set the mode dial to video and pressed the shutter release start taking video as all my other cameras do when I have the mode dial so set.  To my surprise, I got still pictures, cropped to the 16 X 9 video format.  I found out that you can only take video with the TG-5 by pressing the red video button.  What Olympus told you was how to make a frame-grab from 4k video that makes 8 mp stills.  I do not know why they told you something different from what I experienced with the camera when I tested it.
