Playing The Long Game: Outdoor Photography With Telezooms

Apparently, We're Pronouncing Camera Terms Wrong (Again)

The 'how do you pronounce bokeh?' debate is back, along with a few other popular photography terms that are up for debate.

A bit of fun for a Monday afternoon, how do you pronounce the word 'bokeh'? And, how do you write 'RAW/Raw'? These are just two of the questions Gerald Undone is asking in his latest YouTube video which looks at 'etymology, abbreviations vs initialisms, & common mispronunciations'.

The Bokeh pronunciation debate is something we've actually covered before and it's an argument that will probably continue... forever. Plus, should we also mention the way the video creator pronounces 'Nikon'? (Is it Nikon with a small 'i' or NIkon with a big 'I'?)

Anyway, it's a bit of fun that should give you a little entertainment, or debate, on your afternoon break! Enjoy. 

P.S. If you want to learn a little more about bokeh, we have a tutorial all about creating it - go check it out.

I have an issue with this “ large aperture, small number” thing.
The numbers are fractions! Is a half smaller than a sixteenth? NO! Even the way they are written.... f/4.0 for instance.
- focal length over 4 - quarter! Not four!

There, I’ve logged on and had a rant!😁
