"J'aime votre appareil photo."

Translation:I like your camera.

March 30, 2013



Being dutch myself, i think of a camera as either a video camera or a photo camera. Unfortunately photo camera is considered an incorrect answer here.

To which i do not agree at all. Photo camera is a perfectly valid translation.


A still camera, a.k.a. a photo camera
A video camera, a.k.a. a movie camera


Is it only a camera (or its body)? Can't it be a lens or a flash or any gadget that fits to the camera? We are talking about a "photo apparatus", non?


un appareil photo is a camera which produces static photos. une caméra is a camera which produces films


merci beaucoup! Well, the difference doesn't seem so big!...
