XDA Developers forum user fiinix (opens in new tab) has brought on-screen captures to Windows Phone 7, something everyone (especially us bloggers) desire more than above all else, as a homebrew solution. While requiring the dehydration hack, this app contains the setting to toggle whether it's active or not (preserving battery life).
Here are the provided instructions:
- Open up the app
- Navigate to the app/screen you want to capture (no more than 2 apps in between (this app will be killed by "Watchdog"))
- Hold "focus" (not click, >focus), for at least 500ms
- Wait for messagebox to verify capture
- (SUCCESS) > Located under "Pictures > All > Saved Pictures"
You can download the screen capture app and find out more information over at the thread on the XDA dev forum.

TouchXperience has had screen capture for a while. http://touchxperience.com/
We've covered TouchExperience. Not everyone likes it. Plus this more to the point.
This function already exists in Windows Phone Device Manager... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAgd-iTBlGs (@1:59)
Not everyone likes to connect the device to their PC to take a screenshot, I for one greatly appreciate an app for this.
Still don't know if I want to play with this dehydrate thing, but this looks like like a simple approach. Will have to keep an eye on it.
