Given that the vast majority of photographers are using digital cameras, and that a generation has now grown up who have never used, or even seen, a film camera, isn't it time we dropped the word "digital" when referring to cameras and photography?

Surely it is better to qualify 'Film' or even 'analog' as the medium on the rare occasions it is necessary, rather than continue adding an unnecessary adjective to what, for the last 10+ years, has become the more commonplace.
