Can GH2 take stills without interrupting vid?

According to the marketing blab, the GH2 can take stills while capturing video, but can this be done without causing a breif jump/gap in the footage?

If so, only with same sized jpgs? Or RAW stills?

This is a feature (RAW stills without lost video frames) wedding photographers would really love to have.

Yes you can take RAW pictures while filming but there is a slight interruption in the video. I'd guess and say you lose a frame or two. Nothing too bad. It's a pretty cool feature.

Wow that's a cool feature. I wonder if it uses an electronic or mechanical shutter? Obviously the mechanical shutter would interupt the video a little more.
