250 frames out of a 720p (HD) video (actually if want higher res can take 1080p video with a 550D) seem to satisfy his needs...Just take a 5 second video at 720p @60 fps or a 10 second video at 1080p @ 30 fps regarding the topic, take out the individual frames, and you're done!
I don't mean the flashcards thing is a scam, I mean that the rate he is willing to pay is equivalent to a scam. 20 cents per pic will never happen. On the other hand, if he is content with a 32X32 pixels icon for 20 cents per icon, maybe that's reasonable (hey different people define high res differently right?)
In other words, I very noob ah T.T
Got a good laugh from my friends too lol. But looking on the bright side, I now have lotsa photos for my portfolio
