Shooting stills during video


I have a very specific question about the Pentax K3.

Some DSLRs enable you to shoot video and then take a RAW still image during the action, interrupting the video only momentarily. Does the K3 offer this functionality?

Many thanks in advance for any answers.

As far as I can tell it is not possible. I found nothing in the manual and have also tried to find out some way to do it independently of the manual.

Hi lister6520,

Many thanks for the quick response. That is disappointing news, but I'm grateful to have finally found out.
