Hires screen captures

I would like to improve the quality of my screen captures from DVDs and Flight Simulation programs (FS9, Xplane). I am mainly interested in stills at this stage. I use Windows Media Player and Cyberlink Power10 for DVD playback.

To capture a screen I Pause the player and then <PRT SC>. This usually produces out of focus shots because I have little control of the actual frame which is 'printed'. Even when I strike lucky the hires quality of the original is lost in the captured file. With FS9 I get better results than with a hires DVD.

I'd be grateful for advice on suitable software and/or hardware for high quality screen captures from these sources. Thanks.
