Default Need Camera that takes full res stills while shooting video

Does anyone know of any recent or upcoming compact digital cameras with the ability to capture a Full Resolution Still while recording video? This feature is on the Canon TX-1 natively and is VERY useful. I really like the features of both the SD4500 and the SX210IS, but when you press the shutter release during video record it stops the recording completely and takes a picture, you then have to press the record button once again to continue recording. Any help would be appreciated, including, but not limited to, possible alternative cameras that are 10X plus zoom, record HD video, and can take full resolution stills during video record.

The Nikon S8100 does it and at least one of Samsung's current models does it also (don't recall which model).
