>I just bought the LV-5750 portable version of the waveform. The screen grab ability was an important feature in my decision. I donâ€™t have mine yet and was wondering how high the screen grab quality actually is? Does it match the resolution of the camera used or is it limited to the 1024 x 768 resolution of the LCD?

>It's limited to the XGA resolution of the scope's screen which is indeed 1024x768. I find that to usually be more than adequate for my purposes. If you need full 1920x1080 or 1440x720, you can use any one of the numerous capture card solutions in a PC or Mac.

>If you have a 'scope in the budget, get a Leader 5700. You can grab frames to an internal SD card, or even better, grab them to a laptop via bluetooth. Dave Canning showed me some stills from various jobs when we met up at NAB, and the quality was just great.

>Sony's Mini-DV camcorders (and possibly their palm-size decks -- I'm not sure) can also chromakey a raw camera image over a blue-matted stillframe "plate" stored in the stick. Conceivably this could be used as a poor-person's preview system for certain bluescreen shots.
