The biggest drawback with digital image sensors is they are not very
sensitive to light, so they require long esposure times which leads to
blurry images.

The reason a video camera usually gives better images is that the sensors
tend to be larger, allowing more light to hit each cell, and the
resolution is much smaller.  Think 1 megapxel vs 10 megapixels.  Much less

One thing to try is set your camera to the highest ISO setting, and reduce
the resolution down.  You loose resolution to gain sharpness.
