Hello everyone! I have a few questions and I appologize if I sound completely clueless because...well, I am! Photography is not a true hobby for me by any means, but it has started to play a role in my real passion, aquaria and fish keeping. I have been getting pretty involved with a forum, much like this one, on the subject of keeping both freshwater and sal****er fish tanks; of which I have both. As a sort of 'aid' for explaining what I want to get across to those who have some questions, and also to share pictures of my own tanks with others, I have been taking quite a few pictures of my tanks and equipment. However, the problem lies in that I cannot get my fish to sit very still for any amount of time and they do not comply easily when I ask them to "Say Cheese!" The camera I have is a digital camcorder that will take both videos and still pictures. Ironically, the video camera is not well adept at taking still photos of moving 'targets'. All of my pictures of fish come out very blurry since they are moving and I have researched extensively on the brand and exact camera options that I have with my model while trying to see if I can get some more clear pictures. So, today it occured to me that I can take very good and smooth videos, and I of course have the ability to pause the videos on my computer with great clarity of the spacific 'frame' that it stops on. So, I looked into some sort of method or software that would allow me to take still pictures right out of my videos, but cannot find anything really spacific on how to do this. So, I am wondering if any of you may know of a good way for me to accomplish my goals here or if you could so graciously point me at least in the right direction into finding out how to do this. I know that will today's technology, someone must have invented a way to do something along these lines since I often see pictures of fish who are known to be fast and elusive and they are always mighty clear.
