Hi. I'm a bit confused and I'm hoping someone can explain this to me. I would like to get a camcorder and occasionally create still images from the recorded videos. Is this done on the software side of things or does the camcorder have to have this capability? Ideally, I'd like to be able to go frame by frame and then choose the best frame to make an image.
I'm not interested in a dual mode, where I can snap pictures while recording video. I was just wondering if all digital camcorders have what I'm looking for or if I need to look for something specific. For example, with this Canon camcorder (Canon VIXIA HF R20 Full HD Camcorder with 8GB Internal Flash Memory (Black)) "while playing the movie in your camcorder, simply press the photo button to capture a 1920 x 1080 still image onto an SD card or to internal memory." Are they saying that getting an image from the video software is not possible and that it has to be done on the camcorder?
