Capturing Still Images From Video

It's easy to capture still images from video and DVD.

For example, there's software called Topaz Moment (from, which captures video frames from you. It claims that it can increase the quality and resolution of the captured still image frames, and uses "advanced super-resolution video enhancement technology."

In other words, say goodbye to blurred, grainy, or low resolution video stills.

My personal experience? When I shot a video using a Canon IXUS 30 (320 x 240 resolution, 30 fps), I noticed that the captured frame had some kind of watercolor effect. The irises of my video subject were not that distinct; the colors look like they blend with the surrounding areas.

But it looks great, mind you.

Just remember, though, that it won't look as crisp as an actual photo taken using a 4-megapixel camera.

I'll make a video test using low-resolution / low light settings in the future, then I'll subject the Topaz Moment video still image capturing software to the test.
