Hello Dave,
thank you for your reply! I understand that it's easy to make marks on a tripod column, but it works only while one keeps the film plane parallel to the column. Unfortunately, most of my work requires some camera tilt, what renders this approach quite useless (my tripod, Manfrotto 055 Pro, doesn't allow for column tilt, alas). So the Paramender is perhaps the only solution for our work

Regards from Moscow,
Zhenya
