Vibration dampers are similar enough to that device that you might be able to find something usable. McMaster-Carr has a very, very interesting website; you've been warned ;-)

The previous poster got to GoPro first, but the cage idea seems sound for working with what you've got. Layers of bubble wrap on the outside might make for a means of damping the impact of a direct hit.
did I not to mention that the softball players are 10 year old girls don't have a great deal power
Do you notice some sort of rumbling if you rotate this lens or slightly shake it? There is not a lot of noise but just a little. Is this normal?
It's a tough job, but somebody has to separate a fool from her money ... Thanks Louis!
Or a fool from his money
My wife has a LV bag and guess who paid for it ?
Good timing... I just bought my sweetheart a LV bag....
As luck would have it the MagMod gel holder I ordered arrived recently; the band holds tight to the flash and the gel holder seems solid on it. The gels seem easily scratched but I doubt that can be helped, worst-case I can bond some gel film to a thin oiece of glass or whatever. It is much easier to change gels with it compared to Canon's somewhat awkward holder. Photos later if anyone is interested.
Good stuff ! I'm highly interested in your experience with the MagMod, it looks awesome.
I also don't remove it and it actually protected my lens when it fell. The collar knob cracked and I had to super glue it to be able loosen or tighten the ring properly. Does anyone know if canon sells that as a spare part?
