need help with a lens

Hello everyone,

I'm shooting a production with a XL2 camera that unfortunately has to be put into service for two days. Unfortunately I have to keep shooting and the only way to go is to shoot using my really basic consumer Panasonic NV-GS25. It is very basic but for thses specific scenes it will have to do.

What my question is that I need to get a wide angle lens for it. Panasonic has one supported lens but I ca'nt find it anywhere to buy. So is there a lens that can fit my camera? Or is there any other way i can stick on a lens? The lens on the camera is 30.5mm.

Any comments will be appreciated.

You can get step up rings from 30.5mm to almost what ever size you need.I have a Canon camcorder with 30.5mm threads and very sucessfully used lenses with 46mm & 58mm threads. So I have a 30.5mm to 46mm Step up ring & a 30.5mm to 58mm step up ring They are very inxpensieve at B & H.

Hope this might help.

They can be obtained at most Video or photography stores.
