    Problem: Replaced lens only and it's hard to focus camera exactly from the App. Was hoping to find a way to connect directly to the computer from camera to make fine-tuning adjustments. If there's another way, I'm all ears...and eyes.

    Solution! Found a way to do it: Here's a video that shows step-by-step on how to focus the lens on a P2+.

    Depending on the type of lens, you may be focusing at 100 feet or for a zoom lens, maybe 200-250 feet.

    Hey I have i an idea that might work. When you finally get your lens in correct position maybe put on some marks using a marker then use "5 second fix" to lock it into place. That stuff works really good plus sets up quick when 'you' want it too! Can be bought at walmart for $10 or get it on ebay for about $4 or less than $2 for refills. I usually have 2-3 tubes on habd and once I use up one tube I order at least 2 more that way I never run out and have to wait 3-4 weeks for a new one. Always keeping up the supply but not having to spend $10 at Wallyworld!
