Have you ever gotten bent out of shape when someone ask you what you're "filming"?
I ask as I raise my hand in affirmation. Yes, and I almost hate to admit it. For the longest it has been correct to consider our actions to be "taping" our subjects since we were using videotape. (Saying we're are "videoing" something never has really been catchy. )
So I have to ask, what should we call it now? From professional gear down to the consumer level tape cameras are being quickly replaced by XD, P2 and a variety of hard drive or flash capture formats.
I can hear it now....What are you discing? What are you digitizing? What are you flashing? Uhm..no.
So here's what I think....let's go with what the dictionary says.
"Film the verb - to photograph with a motion-picture camera."
It doesn't specify what format...so that would cover the gamet of cameras on the streets today.
And hell, most people already say it like that anyway.
