The Xume 62mm 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 62mm Lens Adapter

    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.

    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 62mm Filter Holder

    The Xume 62mm Filter Holder is a precision-machined metal ring that attaches to a 62mm 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.

62mm Lens Adapter and Filter Holder Starter Kit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Concept for lens adapter needs I use Xume magnetic adapters to allow the use of a screw in lens cover to replace the clip on plastic cover. I dislike the clip-on fastener mechanism and much prefer the magnetic option. The magnetic adapter ring securely holds the lens cover or a filter to the lens and instantaneously allow the cover or filter to be attached or removed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again This is a great idea. I got two filters, one for my polarizer and one for a macro filter. It works great on the macro, but the magnets don't hold as well as I'd hoped for the polarizer. The filter holder tends to turn when I try to turn the polarizer. The only other issue I have is with the manufacturer. I asked if there was a 62mm lens cap developed for this system. That was over a month ago. I have yet to hear from them. I've since discovered they only made a 77mm...very odd given the multiple sizes of filters they have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Advertised It works as advertised, even on my circular polorizer filter.� The only small problem is that my clip on lens cap doesn't stay on my extra filter holder very well; it is easily knocked off.� The easy fix will be to get a screw on lens cap.� All in all, a very good and convenient system.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok could be better I bought the starter kit and one of the magnetic strips feel off the first time I used it. Super glue fixed the issue but for the price I would expect much better. They work as described. If you need something like this there are not many options so this is it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best invention ever This thing is brilliant. No more spending 5 minutes trying to screw a filter on or having one get stuck while I'm in the field. The magnets are super strong and will even support the weight of a lee filters foundation kits and netural density filters on it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Xume Lens Adapter This device makes it easy to change filters without screwing them in each time. A word of caution, a good jault could result in the filter popping off.
