To some, a Laisez-faire cab driver is simply an unambitious driver.

I've never even seen a betacam, so videotape is synonymous with home movies and sitcoms in my mind.

"Presented by" -- "a presentation by" -- "presenting."

Is that nebulous enough?

;-)

Part of it is a generational thing. If I hear the term home movies I think of 8mm or S-8mm film, not video.

Go with filming.

Here in Florida most people don't know the difference. I cracked out my dod's old Regular 8mm film camera for a special project. People who walked by kept asking what I was videotapeing.

Are they films? videos? movies? talkies? soundies?

Who cares. Yes, there are snobs who like to argue such things. Heck, I've done it myself. Life's too short.

sorry if this is a little off topic

i shoot skateboarding, and nobody i shoot with really knows anything about cameras or dv other than me.

i generally interchange video/film all the time, but if i'm talking to another dv enthusiast i try to get it right, although i find film sounds so natural as a noun/verb. most people i talk to that are into dv say 'shot' or 'videoed'.

many of the younger guys i shoot with use pretty funny nomenclature. combine this with the fact that i am on the east coast of canada - it's a real laugh sometimes. most of them use the noun/verb 'vid'.

"vid mission today at the park boys"
"get the vid out harry!"
"hold on; i wanna get that drop on vid b'ye!"
"boys got two vids rippin for multiple angles"
"want me to vid so you can try some stuff?"

honorable mention:

"is that the fishbowl lens? let me look through it!"

but i digress.. is there a thread already dedicated to funny or unusual terminology anywhere?
