Based on the file size of the K-1 this could mean >180GB per such an exercise. Just to have an idea...
Selecting the right image will take some time...

Why? The Fuji X10 had a 'Best Frame Capture' feature which was certainly slower, had less resolution and less memory depth, but it did basically the same.
A short video provides an explanation. You will probably find similar features on several smart-phones and some cameras.
The sensor and image processing must provide fast readout and an electronic shutter (shuttercount!) would avoid excessive wear of the mechanical shutter. This is not for every old camera.

Best regards,
I do not call myself an artist, I just try to capture what I see.
If you need many words to describe what your picture means, it doesn't speak enough for itself.
