Is there a way to grab still shots out of my movie files from my camera? I was going through all my videos (which btw, I screwed up by shooting sideways...how dumb is that) and would like to do pages using pics from them. Like when Mason SMILED for the first time after waking up from his sorta-coma. And Natalie's first steps...I have no pics, just a video.

Help!

I would like to know too!!! I am trying to talk my dad (computer guru) into learning how to do this but he hasn't been interested yet.... I'll let you know if he ever learns how. I wonder if Ritz or one of those fancier camera places could do it?

There is no really GOOD way to capture a still from video -- at least not good enough for a decent reproduction. I'm a print journalist and have tried to capture video segments for print and never have come across anything that even remotely resembles a clear picture. If anyone DOES know of something PLEASE let me know -- but as far as I know it's a lost cause.
