You should get a thermal printer through almost any better computer
and or foto store. They should be 1Kbucks or less. It just
needs a standard video input. Try to find a radio technician to ask
her for details on that. As far as I know, there are several brands
on the market, they come out of the range of video and photographic
suppliers, as e.g hitachi, kodak, toshiba and so.
Another idea would be buying a frame grabber card (should be
included in those new TV tuner cards for PCs -and Macs ? - for maybe
$250 or less). Important is an extra video signal input for the
CCD camera. Then you could be able to store and analyze your photos
directly on your computer or print them out with a laser or ink jet
