Yeah, I took the screen from my Hassy and taped it to the mask to figure out the focal length for a macro Holga I built. Works sweet. You can also use the frosted plastic from the cover of a spindle of CD-Rs or DVD-Rs, or you can even use waxed paper in a pinch.

Thanks for the advice and pointers.
Then why did you ask that then!
The head is about three feet, the small group icon is about six feet, the large group icon is about nine feet, and of course the mountain icon is infinity...
The modification you were talking about seemed a bit too much in my humble opinion. Shooting with a Holga, etc, isn't about precission, it's serendipity, and beauty in the imperfect..
