Hi my name is James Flint. I'm a photographer and videographer and I'm going to talk to you about how to take a high resolution picture with a high definition video camera. This is a feature that is generally found on the consumer cameras. It is not found on the prosumer cameras as much because if you are doing professional work with a prosumer video camera you are generally going to have a professional regular camera to take your still shots but for the sake of conversation let's talk about the consumer cameras and how they do this. It has not become a features that is built into most consumer cameras but you can shoot from a video shooting mode to a photo taking mode and then your video camera becomes a lot like a point and shoot still camera. Your zoom will work the same as it does when you are shooting video but now when you press your shutter button it is going to just take a photo as opposed to start the filming. You know this is advantageous for people just doing kind of family fun stuff because that way whoever is shooting doesn't have to switch back and forth from their video camera to their still camera. It's as easy as a switch of the button and again with the built in features on most new consumer cameras it is that simple. You switch the setting to photo mode and that's how you take a still photo with a high definition video camera.
