In my experience, capture software actually works better. The issues I encountered when using it (I use Snapz Pro) were not related to resolution but more that the frame rate varies. So after I would "capture" my screen I would have to take the file and run it through quicktime to ensure the frame rate was consistently 29.97I have taped off the screen and gotten good results but only when shooting black and white images where I could boost the contrast. But when shooting color, I had problems with moire patterns. In any case, if you do shoot directly off the screen I would advise using an external monitor.good luck,jesse

I asked this question before and have somehow lost your responses, so here
goes again with my apologies:
I want to videotape website navigations. One sees this all the time in
documentaries. I assume they use cameras instead of capture software, since
the resolution of that is not sufficient. So how do I get the best
possible image quality using a camera? Is focal length an issue?
I can figure it out through trial and error, of course, but your experience
will help a lot. Thanks.
