Re: TOS camera usage

All Francis took over as the Director of Photography in the middle of the third season and continued through the last 15 episodes of the series.

64 "The Tholian Web"
65 "For the Wolrd Is Hallow And I Have Touched the Sky"
66 "Day of the Dove"
67 "Plato's Stepchildren"
68 "Wink of an Eye"
69 "That Which Survives"
70 "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield"
71 "Whom Gods Destroy"
72 "The Mark of Gideon"
73 "The Lights of Zetar"
74 "The Cloud Minders"
75 "The Way to Eden"
76 "Requiem for Methuselah"
77 "The Savage Curtain"
78 "All Our Yesterdays"
79 "Turnabout Intruder"

Jerry Finnerman was the Director of Photography for all the other Star Trek episodes except:

1 "The Cage" (William E Snyder)
2 "Where No Man Has Gone Before" (Ernest Haller)
50 "By Any Other Name" (Keith C. Smith)

The late All Francis seems to have been perfectly capable of using a soft focus lens on Katherine Wodville, Barbara Babcock, Kathie Brown, and all the other third season lovelies that he had to shoot. I think that if he elected to not use the soft focus lens on Susan Howard, it's probably simply because she was supposed to be a harsh Klingon warrior and advesary--not a romantic love interest.
