Stills are usually taken on cameras that have a flash facility; for instance on the video in question, we didn’t see all of the fridge compartment as it was in darkness, whereas a still camera with flash would have given good illumination. There is also the added advantage that if a web page follows, the still can be used for that too.

    Are there any guides available about making a tiny house tour video using still shots ?
