And what's up with the macho language like "shoot" and "glass." "I shoot a D700" ??

and I tend to avoid tired, over-used terms like "tack sharp" (is there no other way of describing a sharp image?)

Or my favorite; "arsenal". "My arsenal consists of... blah blah blah"
One that I'm guilty of is "capture", as in "nice capture dude". Is everyone so afraid to use every day common words like "picture"? "Nice pictures dude".

I don't think it is meant to be macho, but to give value to the banal. Here are my examples:

"Image created by"

Snagged, as in "I snagged myself a D300" when they mean bought.

Crank up, as in "I cranked up the ISO"

"D800 does New York", when they mean "here's some cheesy tourist shots of New York which could have been taken with a compact camera but I used an expensive pro camera and for some reason that makes them worth displaying in public".

Incoming, used on some forums when someone buys something.
