Says Joffe about the possibiliies:
“This should excite photographers: their skills sets are about creating beautiful images that work, and I think motion photographs will take more photographic skill than video skill,” he reveals. “Video is about multiple shots that work together to tell a story; motion photos have sound and camera movement stripped away and you are coming down to one moment in one frame that happens to be moving. That is very exciting for me.”

To me, $12,000 dollars for a "18 MP still camera" seems a bit on the steep side. Especially so when I can accomplish the same thing in Servo Mode and Photoshop Stacking.

It's about pulling images from 4k video - not something you can do in Servo Mode and Photoshop. I agree with you on the price being steep.
Yup. I think I commented on this ability elsewhere: the 1D-C is a 24fps 8MP camera. If you double the price of the 1DX (which does 12fps), then voila, you're in 1D-C price territory.
I'm sure there are times when extracting stills from video can be great.

Doing both the same time sounds challenging, at least if you want to use the video stream.(Not that I'd use the same composition or lighting for two essentially different media, but thats a matter of style)
