Your problem will be related to the way movies are rendered.

DV is recorded on interlaced frames - watching it you get both, grabbing a 
still you get half the lines (apparently) - this review might help:


if you want good quality stills get still digital camera, if you want to 
take still images get a dual DV camcorder that has the stills option, but 
beware the low resolution likely from such still images.
