50 times 200mm = 10,000 mm's.

To convert to inches divide 10,000 by 25.4 = 393.7.

To convert to feet divide by 12 = 32.8.

Shortcut method is to just take the focal length in mm and multiply by .164 .

That gives you the target distance in feet.

(200 x .164 = 32.8)

That's easier than doing the longer calcuation each time.
