We have had good luck using camcorders and video capture add ons. I don't know
if they have a model at that resolution, and they are a little more work to use
but the advantage of not having to be a photographer is appealing.
We take video of job setups, etc, and then pick frame by frame the image we want
to use. We use a low end version, around $100- $200, and it came with fairly
good software for editing. The lower end models cannot capture as quickly so it
is harder to grab the exact frame you want. MicroWarehouse has one called the
Dazzel for $199.
