shorter term for videotaping ?

Does a shorter term exist for videotaping ?
Tape doesn't cut it.
Vtape may do it, but I haven't seen it used.
Video is kinda weird.
Film is technically inaccurate.

I, as well as others, have had the same conundrum. I typicly use video, vid, film, record, tape, archive.

Sometimes I say: "videoing". But I think it is "taped". As in "____ is taped before a studio audience."

Shooting, shot on, taping, recorded, acquired, acquistion... we had a big discussion here once about using the term "filming" and came to the conclusion that "film" has definitely changed meaning in recent years and is an acceptable term. Lots of recognizance with that word. Technically not correct, but still applicable, as long as there aren't any projectionists from Colorado reading this (that's an in-joke, forget I said it).

When I worked in TV we always taped. Film was, uh, filming.

Film is a perfectly acceptable term for shooting an image on to any sort of motion picture media.. the argument made before was that it's like painting a picture, which can mean you're using acryllic, oil, watercolour, etc..

But if you describe taping as filming you confuse people. The next logical question is "are you using film?" Which automatically leads people to believe it will be in theatres. Taping leads people to believe it's video or for TV.

Until I came to this board, I had never heard of taping being called filming. And my first video job was in 1971!

Earlier this week I just had the same dilemma when printing up several 12 foot banners for my http://www.talktothecamera.com project.

I finally ended up with a large "Now Filming" on the banner which technically wasn't correct since I'm using video but "Now VideoTaping" just didn't cut it. And "Now Shooting" combined with the subject of my project would be even more confusing.

Videotaping is accurate, but other posts indicate, it takes a long time to utter five syllables.

Vtaping !

Remember, email is short for electronic email. It's too bad that
the significant word "video" is first. Doh.

Within the decade, many video recorders won't have tape. The video will be going to flash cards, hard drive, even by wireless network. 6GB flash cards already exist, although they are prohibitively expensive. 6 GB is about 1/2 the capacity of a miniDV.

Once blue-ray recorders take on, should we use video-disking instead? Or should it be DVD-ing?

The other thing is the simple fact that certain terms sound nicer. Would you rather be a chauffer or a cab driver? Laisez-faire or "let them do as they please?"

When I hear "videotaping" or "taping," right away I think of old, clunky Betacams. Filming implies art.
