security cameras

Local news stations are posting out CCTV footage captured on security camera dvr’s.  Do these video’s help catch the criminals?  Most of the videos captured are grainy and do not have a high enough resolution to hold up in court.  If the criminal does not have a clear enough picture of their face, who is to say that it is truly them?  Many can argue that if they know the suspect, that they can tell who they are by their mannerisms, but are mannerisms enough?  While most will say no, it could be a conviction if presented correctly to the jury.
