Does anyone use Play's Snappy utility? It costs about $200 and works with
conventional video input.

I haven't done any comparisons at all for quality with digital cameras, but
if you'd like an idea of how the results appear, I've got several scenes from
movies done as 'flipbooks' (in animated .GIF's*) on my (actor's) home page
(see below).

Kind of a kludgey solution, but cheap, and it might work for some of the
purposes mentioned.
