    I am. New fake lens tomorrow with my second eye cataract surgery.

    As I have a 360 Imagon I'm going to try Bob's flashlight advice when I regain my sight...

    The flashlight advice is pretty standard focusing procedure in the film industry for Asst. Cameramen. It works!

    I have used a flashlight but the key to the Imagon that Bob revealed is 'The easiest way to focus is to look at a spectral at the point you want to focus to form a cross....and place a flashlight there.'

    And I shoot alone.

    I have been on movie sets, the amount of helpers is amazing. Occasionally I shoot DSLR on set. Autofocus has been good for me when it works...

    I hope when the eyes settle down, maybe I will be better able to focus.

    Already one eye has it's yellow filter removed and that was a color revelation. White is white!

    Hey Randy, I'm sure you look forward to the new lens "cleaning." I hope all is well. :-)

    Thanks. I'm a bit nervous.
