    I’m lazier than everyone here, I just pull up an iPhone app, such as Reciprocity Timer.

    I do what I do because I'm lazy.

    I do the work once so I can skip ahead thereafter.

    Why not get a good old Weston Master Meter. Such calculations are almost automatic if one can't make some simple mathematics computations in their head quickly and efficiently.

    I assume so I can use the method that likens the focal length and bellows measurements to f-stops to figure out the compensation. One would “count off” the steps in the meter dial, I guess.

    Yes, I suppose so, but I wondered if there was something else to it.
