XUME 77mm Lens Adapter

You Pay: $32.95
Product Highlights
  • Enables Quick & Secure Filter Attachment
  • Metal Ring with Integrated Magnets
  • Used in Combination with Filter Holder
  • Eliminates Filter Jamming

The Xume 77mm Lens Adapter is a precision-machined metal ring that attaches to a lens with a 77mm-diameter filter thread to provide instant and secure attachment of filters when Xume Filter Holders are installed. This adapter ring incorporates NdFeB rare Earth magnets into its design to enable a strong, but easy to remove, connection between the lens adapter and filter holder. By using quick-to-remove magnets to attach filters, changing of filters can occur much more quickly and eliminates the chance of cross-threading or jamming when installing or removing filters. The ring is approximately the same thickness as most step-rings and will not cause vignetting on most lenses with focal lengths as wide as 24mm (35mm equivalent). Over-the-lens type lens hoods are still compatible when Xume Adapters and Holders are in place and are recommended during use to provide an even more assured connection if working in busy environments. Additionally, traditional snap-on lens caps are not compatible with lens adapters; however a filter holder can be used on a lens cap to enable its use.

            This has simply made swiching screw on filters so easy! I can not imaging not using them anymore!

            Only problem is I cannot use it on wide angle lenses like the tokina 11-16 as it will be seen at the widest point...

            Comments about XUME 77mm Lens Adapter:

            I use these on a set of cine-moded Nikkor primes (with a 52-77 step up ring to a 77-80 O.D. ring). These are invaluable for filter changes without a matte-box. In less than 3 seconds, I can change out a variable ND with a circular polarizer.

            One concern I had before trying these out is whether or not I could use a vari-ND. If the magnets were to weak, it would have been a headache to adjust these kind of filters. I'm pleased to say that the magnets holding the filter to the lens are strong enough adjust without issues, and are light enough to pop on and off with ease.

            That said, the major grip I have with this adapter is that you cannot use a traditional photo lens cap. Because the inside of the adapter contains space for magnets and is smooth, there is no way for a traditional lens cap to work with this design. But since I'm using these primarily on cine-modded lenses, this is not an issue for me because I planned to use push-on 80mm caps. If you are considering these for photography use, the only way I can see these working is if you buy dedicated filter holders for all your lens caps.

            While the lens cap issue is annoying, the ease of secure and speedy filter changes is a game-changer.

                Because of the hassle of attaching and removing filters, I tended to not use them. This just caused additional work in post-processing. Now, I'll have no excuse, I can start using all of those expensive filters that had been gathering dust.

                    The XUME magnetic filter system is stunning in its simplicity and spot on in execution. Used together, the Adapter (screws into the barrel of the lens) and Lens Holder (the filter screws into this piece) allow you to attach filters to a lens magnetically, rather than with the screw in functionality. Very simple to set up and even easier to use. No more screwing around (pun intended) trying to mount fine thread components in less-than-ideal conditions. Think of this system as the answer to changing filters quickly or in the cold. Won't twist or become unmounted when using s CPL or VND filter. Just perfect.

                      The concept is great.Very well made, but causes profound vignetting on Nikkor 28-300mm. Even
                      with a single slim UV filter. Shouldn't be a problem
                      on midrange or long zoom lens.
