Thread: Random thought

    Default Random thought

    So i got bored at work, wiki-ed "point-and-shoot" and naturally stuff about compact cameras differences to D/SLR's etc etc came up. But i realised it didnt mention the origin of the phrase.

    So im thinking:
    Arn't all cameras(stuff that captures still and/or moving images) = point and shoot?

    E.g. A Video Cam. I point in the direction, aim in the viewfinder, and shoot by pressing the record button. Point and shoot.

    Let's put this in another perspective: A revolver, A rifle, A cannon, A howitzer = Gun

    What are your thoughts?

    If you manage to point and shoot everyone who can make you go into DB then how?

    Of course, not suggesting that anyone should even try that. They will never succeed.
