I'm pretty sure that most consumer camcorders take stills in the 4-8 MP range, which will probably be quite enough for family pictures to keep the missus happy.

Be careful about that. My camcorder takes 5 MP stills if memory serves. But that is an interpolated image. The actual resolution of the sensor is closer to 1MP. It is quite common with the low-end camcorders to up-res the stills -- in which case 5MP is pretty much doggy-doo. FWIW
