Does anyone know where to get a wind screen for the Xacti 1010? Or there is an easy way to make my own?

I had some success using a couple of cotton wool balls teased out and attached over the top of the mics with sticky tape. It didn't look very pretty but worked pretty good. Make sure that the cotton wool is teased out fluffy like to get the best wind dampening. I use my camera with my hang gliding flying up to 60mph. The cotton wool worked up to about 30 mph. Since then I have added an external mic inside my helmet to get it completely out of the wind.

You could even stick a piece of very fluffy material, like fake fur over the mics. If you look at the wind covers they use on professional mics the fluffier the better. I have even read on some boards that they have to make sure that the fluffy material is routinely combed to keep it loose.
