Things I Learned
You can't take a photo while you're shooting a video - at least not in the Canon XA40.
The Canon XA40 has a great feature that allows you to assign one of the assignable buttons to take photos. This is a quick way to take a photo, and it's very convenient. I highly recommend setting up one of the back buttons to quickly take photos
