I talk about ‘capturing images’ or ‘running video’
And yes I’m old enough to remember when Super8 was a format; taking a picture involved film and guessing on f-stop and shutter speed… heh.
(I do mostly love our instant digital age. Mostly)
Waiting for someone to plug Durnell one there. Just because.
Super8? Sounds fancy. Daguerreotype is for me.
Actually, I’ve been talking about the same thing in my English classes over the last 2-3 weeks, trying to describe the verbs used to Japanese adult students. I am going to start including “pestering” in the future classes. I will cite Hubris as the go-to reference for this.
I expect the terms “film” and “tape” will be around forever.
So far into the future that folks won’t even know their original meanings.
I wanted to also point out that we still ‘dial’ a phone when there haven’t been dials on phones for two or three generations now, but there wasn’t a good segue.
Remember how sore your finger could get dialing numbers, with a dial? Do you remember named exhanges? My home town was Cherry (CH or 24) and things would be listed as CHerry x-xxxx for the number. I had some pencils I held onto with phone numbers like that imprinted on them. And you would always lift the handset then press the knobbys down once to make sure you had an open and active line? Heh. Ever dial a phone with a pencil (eraser end) so your first finger wouldn’t get sore from pulling the dial????? God Love Black Bakelite those phones lasted forever!
I last used a rotary dial phone, back in 2002. Than we switched a 900mhz cordless (which was a novelty at the time) and we had a Nortel Meridian 200 as well.
lol. that would work though they will come up with a name soon.
