Silver Surfer and fellow members,

All very good points and tips! And thanks to everyone who posted links to the affordable items.

I have never "degreed" a cam before but, based on what I've read on this forum, I see two schools of thought: some believe degreeing isn't necessary when installing an everyday pedestrian cam (hence the question about size), while others believe it's always worth the extra effort in case the specs are off (which some believe is becomeing a more recuurring issue).

I'm following this conversation as I'm learning from it myself. Thanks to Silver Surfer for asking the question.

I was going a little searching on this same subject a couple days ago & I ran across a site that you could print it out. Save the file to your email, stop by kinkos on your way home from work one day, have them to enlarge it & print it out, laminate it & you got it for a couple bucks. I'll see if I can find that site.
