The topic of misused terms in photography came to me when someone asked about “the industry standard”. Industry standard implies a written, documented, industry accepted design, set of protocols and mode of operation. An example of an industry standard in photograph is ISO.
Time to review a product again. This time it is the AD200. I haven’t worked with it a whole lot, but so far I am VERY impressed.
