I am shooting a miniDV project and I would like to know if there is a way to mount a net or stocking on the back of the lens. I have tried this with a Canon still photography camera and the net keeps getting in the way of the shutter.

I have heard that there is something called an i-ring which can hold the net in place but I am not sure if this is only for a front lens mount. The only thing I have tried is to hold a stocking in place with a rubber band. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I don't have the answer for you, but I would be afraid to put anything that didn't belong on the back of the lens for fear of messing up all the electronics. It will be interesting to see if anyone has an answer for this.

I am a little scared of this as well.

I would like to use black netting behind the lens of an XL1. For fear of damaging something I thought I would ask before attempting this with the video camera. I have a couple photography cameras so I have experimented a little but I keep running into problems. Any help at all would be appreciated. Thanks.

Just stretch it across the end of the lens and keep it there with snot tape.

Chris, you're kidding, right?

I wonder if anyone makes reusable "i-Ring" net holding devices for removeable-lens 1/3" and 1/2" CCD camcorders? (Or do the lens mounts for these cams not lend themselves to this approach?)

Here's a link to the i-Ring version for 2/3" cams:
