I'm in the midst of writing a textbook on television criticism.  Part of
it will be detailed stuff on TV style.  Consequently I need to
illustrate it with video frame enlargements.
Previously I've done them by just pointing a still camera at a good
quality monitor and slowing the shutter speed down to 1/30 or so.  Does
anyone know of a better technique?
I do have access to some digital video equipment (1 inch).  Is it
possible to capture frames and then have them transfered to a hard copy?
Would that look better than just shooting off the TV screen?
And, failing in that, does anyone have any pointers about maximizing the
quality of shot-off-the-screen stuff?
Thanks for the help.
          The matters I relate
          Are true lies.
