Looking for Inexpensive Sun Shade for VX2000 with 72mm WA Lens

Discussion in 'Professional Video Production' started by Mark & Mary Ann Weiss, Jun 2, 2004.

  1. I've been shopping around for something like a matte box, but I don't need
    drop in filters, so a sun shade is more like it. All I see are in the $380
    and up range. That's a lot of money for a shade. I was hoping someone makes
    a sunshade with adapter rings for various situations, for under $100.
    The VX2000 has a 58mm thread. I have a Raynox .66 HD WA lens on it with a
    72mm thread on it's front end. I need to adapt a sunshade to that. It must
    be wide enough not to vignette. It must be deep enough to actually keep
    anything outside the lens' effective angle of coverage off the lens
    (overhead lights, for instance). The Raynox flares like hell when any
    overhead light is present. However, I DON'T want to spend $700 for a Century
    Optics matte box. I don't need that much function.

    Take care,

    Howdy from Texas,

    Hey, it's the peg-legged Bass Pig! It's been a long time since
    I interviewed you for my radio show "back in the day," but I still
    have the anime tape you sent me then. Good to see you on r.v.p.

    Anyway Mark, you might want to look into the Matteblox from
    Cinetactics: http://cinetactics.com/mb100m.php -- hope this helps,
