Yes it is possible. If you are recording video you need to stop the video recording and then switch to photo. I can do this in the air.

"The photo format" - I believe this refers to switching from J, R, J+R, possibly even the aspect ratio. You can still shoot videos and photos in flight, as long as you're not trying to take a photo while the system is recording a video.

The first flight after I upgraded the firmware I noticed it had defaulted to taking stills. I couldn't change it to video until I had landed it.

Is this with the Inspire or a Phantom 3 Pro/Adv? I flew both over the weekend with the latest firmware installed and did not encounter this lockout.

I'd venture a guess that you already know that you can't shoot stills while a video is being recorded. Could you do a quick video - get the bird fired up and in the air, then shoot a 30s video, stop the video, flip the toggle to photo and take a photo.

That should help with diagnostics

It's odd, since it happened I've been in video mode only.
Sunday I tried to change it and it worked.
Most odd.
