haha! That's how I used to measure it too (obviously the deflection of the lower sidewall would cause the measurements in these pictures to be a bit off):








Tangent(A) = opposite / adjacent

and my little cheater table:
opposite/adjacent equals camber
0.004 -0.25
0.009 -0.50
0.013 -0.75
0.017 -1.00
0.022 -1.25
0.026 -1.50
0.030 -1.75
0.035 -2.00
0.039 -2.25
0.044 -2.50
0.048 -2.75
0.052 -3.00
0.057 -3.25
0.061 -3.50
