    Can you show a picture?

    See the very bottom of the page. Click link. What Ralph and some of us use is a variant of this in which the target is square instead of round. At one time Calumet sold such a tool but there are several available on the internet.

    I was talking to Jim about his GG cutout thing... LOL

    But thanks, all those pages are too complicated for me, I looked at it and was like, "yea no.." Lol

    I already use the reciprocity timer app for all my work, but just in case I'm ever in a situation where my phone doesn't work (like a week in the canyon) I would like to have some kind of card to help out

    In fact, I don't even know if I'm measuring right, I assume it's from the film plane, to the center of the lens (lens board area) but it could be from the rear element? I don't even know haha, I'm not very precise with it, but it hasn't seemed to affect me too much.

    Maybe you need to stop typing and read the material. It's really very basic and well explained. Yes, the measurement is between the film and lens planes, but as you say being really precise or accurate isn't really necessary. Jim's "cut-out thing" is in more than one of those links. They may be round instead of square, but same thing.

    I was assuming it was some kind of PDF you could print and cut out that's what I was looking for so I saw the pages with math on it I just didn't bother :-0
