Do camcorders take pictures?
It depends on the camcorder that you have. Older camcorders with cassette tapes normally do not. However, you can take a screen capture of a video on the computer.
When dealing with digital camcorders each different design and make has different features. Not all camcorders will have the ability to take digital photos. Some have a photo mode, which basically means it freeze frames the footage and saves it to be viewed as an image. However if you are filming at the time it momentarily interrupts the flow for roughly 5 seconds and the quality versus a camera is considerably reduced too.
