    Nice "capture!"

    One of the things I find annoying about dig.. I mean, um... "non-analog" photography is the use of the term "capture." as in "Nice CAPTURE, Fred!"
    Why can't the term "picture" or "shot" be used? Is it too old fashioned?
    I don't remember this term being used in the past, or did I just miss out?
    Maybe I'm gettin' too old.
    Well, gotta go develop an Acros roll of captures. (Bleh!)

    Moderators : I just found a thread on this subject, so you can delete this post. Thanks!

    Yeah, that annoys me, too. Gotta go into the darkroom and do some imaging, myself.

    In digital they use the word capture, because it rhymes with rapture.

    The person operating the digital device, goes "Oh my God, look what I found on the back of my rapture collector. I think I'll photoshop the shit out this and see if I can make a picture."


    Sorry......

    never mind.

    Just a guess ...

    The reference to capture probably is an attempt to differentiate between the image stored temporarily ("captured") in the temporary memory in the camera/on the memory card (and which is just as likely to be discarded as reviewed further), and the image which is actually stored on disk or shared with others or, gasp!, printed.

    If Polaroid (or Kodak) had come up with rewriteable and reusable instant film, us analogue fans might have done something similar.

    I think of it as sort of high speed fishing - "catch (or capture) and release"

    Personally, I would prefer it that way. I am tired of the digital crowd usurping words that have very specific meanings, like darkroom, for their processes - for example "digital darkroom" or "dry darkroom" (as I recently read in LensWork).

    I "bag" pictures or images. Get them before they're gone.

    Dry darkroom?
    That's a new one. I guess I consider my darkroom dry since it doesn't have running H20. Just a nova proc. I walk to other end of the garage where I have a print washer setup on the hose.
    dry darkroom

    perhaps, they'll call "flattening" layers to "dry Fixing" the image
