It is my humble opinion that capture has come to us from the computer world as in screen capture and the like and I think it refers to the process of the sensor capturing the light to form an image. This is actually a much more discriptiove term then the one we old time filmers used which was exposure we made a great exposure I mean really do we look like a bunch of exhibitioinists showing off our nether parts. Frankly I like capture works for me
