Lens cap for VOCAS mattebox

Hi all,

Does anyone know were I can find a large lens cap for my VOCAS MB-315 mattebox that is permanently mounted on my HD camera? The size of the mattebox is 21 x 16 centimeters or 8.3 x 6.3 inches.
I know PortaBrace has lens caps, but their biggest is only 8 x 6 inches. I'm affraid that this isn't going to fit.

For the moment I only have the French flag closed when the camera is not in use. But it still gathers some dust. Yesterday I noticed some spots during editing that I couldn't adress. After inspecting the lens it seemed to be dust.

Ivan,

I recommend getting a coverlens!

Cover Lens - Video Camera Lens Cover

it completely wraps around my Vocas MB-315 and it includes a set of warm/white balance cards, pen and microfiber cloth.

I sent Cordell (owner, chief cook, and bottlewasher over at coverlens) the dimensions to the matte box. I figured I wouldn't see the cover for a few weeks. within 24 hours Cordell had confirmed all of the dimensions and I had a perfectly fitting Coverlens in my hands within only a few days! Talk about great service!

here is a review of it via dvxuser.com:

Also found these from 16x9 Inc.

16x9 Inc. | Small Mattebox Cover | MBC116X9 | B&H Photo Video

I guess this also must be fitting. Exterior Dimensions 10 1/2 x 1/2 x 7 3/4" (26.67 x 1.27 x 19.69 cm) (LxWxH).
