Hi,

I'm just wondering when you have to make measurements for something like a plate shot or a locked-off shot, it's easy to note the lens height, subject distance, etc. but how do I get the angle of tilt and other such measurements? thanks in advance.

Get an $8 angle finder at Home Depot or off Amazon.com

There's a really weak magnet on the back and bottom of it, which were easily removed.
