"Nosotras vamos a utilizar dos cámaras."
Translation:We are going to utilize two cameras.
Utilize? I mean, come on, who even uses that word in everyday life? So why should we use it now?
Is it that it is more common in Spanish? Can any Spanish native speakers tell us?
"usar" is only used for the intended action, while "utilizar" is more general. For example, if they are going to take photos, they would "usar la cámara", but if they are going to disarm them and use the lenses to start a fire, they would "utilizar la cámara".
That sounds fairly similar to the usages of "use" and "utilize" in English. Are you a native Spanish speaker?
Or vamos a utilizar las dos cámaras, though that's not the Duolingo Spanish sentence.
When I wrote that comment I didn't realize los was necessary, though it makes sense in retrospect.
With this example, it really sounds to me like the announcer is saying nosotros instead of nosotras.
oh, good... suggested translations for "camaras" are cameras or chambers... i write "I will use two chambers" and DL sign me error and "we will use two BEDROOMS"???? :o
Why not two chambers? In finnish at least camara means small room or camera.
Did you just compare an Uralic language with an Indo-European one? Brave. :)
Cámara has those two meanings in Spanish as well. But I'm not sure to what goal you'd use chambers. Rooms aren't really tools.
many dictionaries, and Duo, give 'room' ( = habitacion) as a definition of camara
rspreng- yes it's a room, but not for sleeping. When we use cámara as a room we have to say what kind of a room you're talking about. cámara de aire, cámara de compensación, cámara de gaz, cámara de frigorífica, cámara mortuoria, cámara oscur.
rebotica- If the sentence you had to translate is in English, without context, of course both are correct. For me The sentence was in Spanish and it says nosotras.
There is a staggering excess of photography on this planet at the moment. What is going to be the next gadget-driven excess?
If you had a translation exercise, either option should be okay. For listening exercises you have to be exact.
