Thanks for your reply.

This makes sense. I would like to experiment with using the photographs for landscape reconstruction using photogrammetry, and, as long as the focal length doesnt change, I would tend to think that the images extracted from video would work.

This camera has a 1.3 megapixel CMOS sensor. The camera still images are 2592 x 1944 pixels, or about 5 mega pixels. This is not possible without upsizing the CMOS image (e.g. digitally zoomed) by about 2x, so you lose a lot of resolution and images look more fuzzy than the video which records the actual pixel size from the CMOS sensor. Much sharper images are obtain just by capturing individual frames from the video.
