Hey, I hope this is the right place to post this question. I just got this Opteka 0.2X Vortex Fisheye Lens for my JVC Everio HM200 30.5mm thread size camcorder (I had to use a 37mm - 30.5mm converter ring). It's my second fisheye and I love it to death, 220 degree angle view inlove.gif . However, since I use it to film skate videos, and in some videos you have to film lines where the filmer is on a skateboard, following the other skateboarder and moving the camera all around, I'm worried the threads might break and cause $130 worth of glass and plastic to fly on to the ground and break.

Is there anything I can do to support the fisheye? Like build or buy something that goes onto the front of the handle so the fisheye rests on something? I don't think the ghetto rubberband setup in the pic on the right is working out to good lol.gif:
