I have footage of aircraft taken using a Hitachi VM-E228E 8mm video camera.
I realised recently that some of the aircraft on video I don't have on slides and I would like to capture some of the frames as stills and save them on CD.
I have a CD writer, Adobe Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro etc, so manipulating captured frames would not be a problem.
What I can't seem to get hold of is information on how good these frame grabbers are. Two of those I have seen specs and manufacturers' claims for are the Pinnacle Studio Pro and Pinnacle Studio DC10+.
They claim excellent single frame capture but I don't know anyone who has one. Computer stores, whilst very willing to sell the cards, haven't any demos available and no-one will offer a card on approval.
Can anyone advise if these cards are any good? They also double as TV cards and video editing cards so I'm suspicious tht they may be trying to be all things to all men.
