I suppose you could extract the photos from video, but this approach would seem to save on memory consumption, and possibly battery consumption?
I don't think is has been done for this camera like was done for the old 808 camera. I think it is possible, but not worth the effort.

This camera has a 1.3 megapixel CMOS sensor. The camera still images are 2592 x 1944 pixels, or about 5 mega pixels. This is not possible without upsizing the CMOS image (e.g. digitally zoomed) by about 2x, so you lose a lot of resolution and images look more fuzzy than the video which records the actual pixel size from the CMOS sensor. Much sharper images are obtain just by capturing individual frames from the video.
