I'm guessing your camera can do some video. That's the way to go. With single frames, I have a remote to snap the shutter. With video, I don't need it - just hit the button on the cam to start and stop. I can drop the first and last few seconds and still have a lot of good frames to work with. The video on mine records at 24 frames per second, so a 30 second avi gives me 720 frames to work with, give or take. I've done more, but there's really diminishing returns doing more than 30 sec at a time - and the longer the video, the longer the processing. I'd take several 30 second videos,stack them individually, and pick your best.
I can also adjust the video quality. I normally just go with 720p, and get some really good resolution. Your mileage may vary.
