JVC GY-HD 200 series stock lens hood?

I have a JVC GY-HD 201E with its standard lens. This lens has a slight problem in that when you fit an 82mm threaded filter you can't remove the lens hood without removing the filter first. No great problem maybe, just a waste of time in some shoot and run situations.

Does anyone know of a good, strong 16X9 compatible rubber hood that would slip over the front of the lens fitted with a screw in filter, and then lock in place with a thumb screw clamp?

No reply? A bit of tinkering about has produced a solution that may be of interest. If you can get hold of a Fujinon broadcast 2/3" - say a 15x8 lens hood, it does slip onto the 200 stock lens (with an 82 mm filter attached) and clamp tight. It might not prove too expensive to buy one of these lens hoods these days.

I use a Mattebox to be able to achieve the quick changes and more control of the filters instead. That is the only good solution.

Yes, you are right Marc. I was looking for a less cumbersome solution for certain fast, rougher work.
