Super-8 film camera tele lens for HV20/HV30

Has anyone tried to use a quality film tele lens on the HV20/HV30 ? I have a Canon C-8 43 wide lens and it works brilliantly..Not sure what old tele would work

Hey Anmol, is your wide lens also a super-8 lens?
I've been wanting to try out s-8 lenses on my JVC GY-HD251 for a while now

I use a Canon C8 teleconverter 1.4x on my Z1. The Canon lens has a 67 mm thread and my Z1 is a 72 mm, but the combo works beautifully, and gives me back the reach lost going from the VX2000.

ive got a c8 1.4x as well. Problem is that its too heavy for the plastic thread on the hv20s. May work on a metal thread..
