I like that one! I've a SLR that has both. I don't have the G2 yet (which only demarcates what it measures in meters), this is a great hands on way. Why is the most simple sometimes the least obvious...

Thanks all for the pointers! Fun discussion!

If only [edit Jefferson] got his wish, but then again we wouldn't be having this conversation. What I like some much about this conversation is it's the ultimate analog discussion. Seeing the world in numbers, algorithms, etc. neat'o in my book!
