What does 대는 stand for?

Counter for machines

If I used '개' for the counter on inanimate objects would people still be able to understand or would that just be too unnatural? Obviously, it's better to know the counters for everything, but there are just so many! I was hoping I could just sneak on by with '개'.

Yes, you can safely sneak by with 개. People will understand you. Especially for the less common ones.

You can learn the other counters gradually whenever you encounter (!) them :)

대 is meant for big machines like TV right? camera seems too small to use 대 as unit.. any idea ?
