Firstly,whilst using video- any still image will be without a flash. You're also confined to a small resolution image. All exposure parameters are auto- as is the iso setting- and given the indoor scenario you describe, I'm afraid it will be nigh on impossible to capture decent stills whilst shooting video.
Can you not take a still image from the camera after the movie has been shot- in other words,extracting a still frame from the movie..? I may be wrong but I'm sure that is possible on that camera. Of course it won't be of high resolution,but I suspect might have a better exposure than the other alternative.
