hey ous thanks for the comments. Glad you are amped. Going to be working on the edit this year.
Yeah those images actually had to be resized for the website.
The original frames grabs sit at around 1920x1080 pixels.
The frame grabs on this site are 640x360
So the originals are over double the quality. HD is amazing..
72 dpi resolution

Hope you guys are good and scoring waves somewhere.

Marthinus - yes, they are frame grabs. Colin has an HD set-up. Technology is definitely moving forward and there are some guys who are able to get some pretty good quality frame grabs which are good enough for newspaper print work from what I believe. According to the writer of this article, he works for a paper and can now use just a video camera to submit both stills to the paper and stills & video to the papers website.

For any budding videographers out there here's the link - HD Frame Grab - How to ... - we'd love to see some more high quality submissions to the website.
