XUME 62mm Lens Adapter
Key Features
  • Enables Quick & Secure Filter Attachment
  • Metal Ring with Integrated Magnets
  • Used in Combination with Filter Holder
  • Eliminates Filter Jamming
The Xume 62mm Lens Adapter is a precision-machined metal ring that attaches to a lens with a 62mm-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.

XUME XLA Overview

The Xume 62mm Lens Adapter is a precision-machined metal ring that attaches to a lens with a 62mm-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.

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.

Convenience and speed

I love these things. I now have 3. I would give this 5 stars of they were at a lower price point. I must caution you to take care when using them. They dont readily fall off but they will fall off when you bump or jar the camera too hard. I almost lost an expensive fader filter over a cliff. Luckily it stopped rolling just before it went over.

XUME CAME UP WITH A GREAT IDEA

I found out about these adapters, which you need to use the Xume filter holder, on a Tim Grey webcast. It sounded like a great solution to the issue of working with an ND filter, eliminating the need to screw the filter on after focusing your lens. This effectively eliminates the risk of undoing your careful focus effort. I also realized it was a great idea for my polarizer when I'm traveling and moving in an out of buildings and moving from heavy shade to sun. It overcomes the inclination to leave your polarizer on or off because you're tired of screwing it on/off. The strong magnetic adapter makes a nice firm connection to the Xume lens filter holder. It's a great idea, well executed. It is not cheap, but the quality appears high.

Works great! It's an easy way to use circular filters without having to screw them on or off--especially helpful when using a 10 stop and I need to check focus or recompose. I bought this extra adapter to go along with the XUME three piece kit I already have.

Love this

I have Xume adapters for my polarizers and ND filters. Being a hobby photographer, these allow me to quickly change filters and experiment. However, they can come off if you bump them, particularly if you bump just the edge of the filter on something. It takes a good hearty bump to dislodge them but if you are that rough with your lenses then these probably aren't for you.
