I have a device that plugs in to your parallel port, called a Snappy.
Using it and the software supplied with it, you can get high-quality stills
from any video source.  Snappy costs $200 just about everywhere I've seen,
although some places like CostCo might still have Snappy with the 1.0
software version for $125.

I have several shots of my tank captured with a snappy at:
