The Xume 52mm Lens Adapter and Filter Holder Starter Kit from B&H includes one lens adapter and two filter holders to provide quick and easy attachment and removal of two different filters on one lens.

The Xume Lens Adapter and Filter Holder system revolves around both filters and lens' filter rings receiving precision-machined metal rings and then utilizing NdFeB rare Earth magnets to facilitate a secure, but easy to remove, connection between the filter and lens. By using a magnetized, non-threaded connection, the chance of cross-threading or jamming filters onto the lens is eliminated and time is saved when swapping filters.

  • XUME 52mm Lens Adapter

    The Xume 52mm Lens Adapter is a precision-machined metal ring that attaches to a lens with a 52mm-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.

    Traditional snap-on lens caps are not directly compatible with Xume lens adapters. To protect the front element of a lens that is not in use, but has a Xume lens adapter installed on it, a Xume filter holder can be first connected to a snap-on lens cap. The combination of a snap-on lens cap and a Xume filter holder can then be placed over the lens instead of a filter with a Xume filter holder. Alternatively, a Xume lens cap designed to cover a correspondingly-sized Xume lens adapter may be used instead.

  • 2 x XUME 52mm Filter Holder

    The Xume 52mm Filter Holder is a precision-machined metal ring that attaches to a 52mm circular screw-in filter to provide instant and secure attachment to lenses when a Xume Lens Adapter is installed. NdFeB rare Earth magnets are integrated within lens adapters to attach to the filter holder to and provide a strong, but easy to remove, connection that is suitable for use with oft-used filters. 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.

52mm Lens Adapter and Filter Holder Starter Kit is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Less Accessory The magnetic lens rings are a splendid idea. They should be recognized as the best innovation in photography accessories in a long time. It makes attaching solid metal lens caps and filters to the lens much easier. They do not fall off. The magnetic rings make mounting filters The hassle of mounting screw on filters is resolved. That prompts one to use them more. I have lost plastic lens caps with the pinch catches because they can be bumped and dislodged unknowingly when working in the field. The magnetic ring mounted lens cap is now so easy to attach and remove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changing for your filter usage The Xume system will change the way you use your filters. No longer will you wonder if a polarizer will help, but you hesitate because of all that screwing and unscrewing. Pop off your UV filter, pop on the polarizer. The magnetic system is just right, it holds the filter on securely while making it easy to change. I started out with the 72mm for my zoom and recently added the 52mm set to my other lenses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaces my lens cap I simply screw the blank adapter on my camera and my high quality UV filter on one of the filter holders. What I have is a transparent lens cap that I will remove only if I want to maximize image quality. I had no idea this existed but so happy that it does. I found out that adding a lens cap to it made it more prone to falling off though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Idea It is clear that it could generate a bit of vignetting on wide angle lenses, but IT WORKS GREAT on medium to long focal distance lenses. I love it and will buy a set for ALL my lenses and filters. It is incredibly convenient. I just love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life changer.... I use Xume on all my cameras. This thing is a life changer. I use one for the lens cap and one for my ND filter. Everything is so easy with those especially when you're in a hurry. Great idea,excellent execution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have accessory great idea to eliminate screw attachment of filters or spring clip lens caps. I replaced my lens caps with the filter holder and a screw in solid metal cap.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Time saver I got these for my Panasonic fz200. I've never used filters before, but wanted to grow my skills by trying a Circular-Polarizer and a Graduated 0.6 ND Filter. I've used this setup on two outings so far, and am satisfied it will do the job. The fz200 lens hood can be removed or attached with the lens adapter installed. I can quickly attach or remove a filter, and adjust the filters with the hood on or off. The magnets are strong enough to keep the 'filter holder' from spinning on the 'lens adapter', where it concerns the Hoya polarizer, but would occasionally spin with the Tiffen ND filter. The Tiffen does not rotate as smoothly as the Hoya. I bought an extra 'filter holder' for my lens cap since the lens cap will not work with the 'lens adapter' installed. The problem with this, was when trying to remove the lens cap/filter holder, the lens cap would occasionally come off leaving the empty filter holder still attached to the lens adapter. To solve this problem I bought a 52mm threaded lens cap, and screwed it into the extra filter holder. Practicing with these two filters; I take a shot with one of the filters, try the next, and then take the same shot with no filter. I couldn't imagine doing this without this product. IMPORTANT NOTE: With the fz200, you have to zoom out slightly with this product installed and filter attached or you will see some vignetting. That's why I give it 4 stars.
