As a sophomore, I recently gained access to the Arri SR-2 cameras at my school. Unfortunately, I can't really use them because my glasses don't allow me to apply enough pressure to the eyepiece to open up the light-gate, while the adjustable diopter is not strong enough to compensate for my bad eyes. I can't wear contacts because my eyes are extremely sensitive to even water and saline solution.
Does anyone know of where and for approximately how much I could expect to purchase an "extra-strength" diopter or some sort of diopter booster or anything that would allow me to use these cameras without my spectacles? This is a concern I have been anticipating for a while, but now it has become immediate because I have been assigned to shoot a fellow student's film in about two weeks.
I know the proper course of action would be "google it," but that hasn't gotten me any results. :\
