For effective images, the "pick a frame from a video stream" approach doesn't really work. At 24 frames a second at, for example, 1/125 exposure per frame you are actually only recording 20% of the time; at 1/250 it drops to less than 10%. Therefore, there is an extremely high probability that you don't actually capture the good parts...

This, as opposed to consciously shooting single frames where you anticipate the moment all the elements come together is going to be much more fruitful in delivering worthwhile results.
