Netting lenses at rear - best technique?
Posted 25 March 2006 - 09:45 AM
On the one occasion that I have put rear nets on it was just a case of double sided tape. Normally this is fine, as it just a case of making a neat square of tape and stetching over the net.
However on some lenses it gets a lot more comlicated, particuarly when the glass element is pushed in from the end of the lens, this means attching the net to the inside of the barrel, and can be really quite fiddly, I'm always a bit nervous of damaging the glass, also it is very time consuming and fiddly when it comes to the end of the shoot and you have to take the nets off to return to kit.
Is it always this makeshift, or are there purpose built mounts to take rear netting?
Any help would be appreciated.

If you want to net the back of an ENG video lens, try the lid from a 35mm stills cartridge case. Take the lid and cut the centre out just leaving the ring. It clips perfectly around the metal barrel at the rear of the lens.
Unless the cartridge cases you're using are different to most, this is sadly not true - believe me, I've tried :-(

But snot tape is probably better.

Snot tape can be found in picture framing stores if your local art supply place doesn't stock it.
Just FYI: I was hoping to mount a rear net on the JVC HDV lens recently, but there was no clearance back there for anything.
