XUME 55mm 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 55mm Lens Adapter is a precision-machined metal ring that attaches to a lens with a 55mm-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 55mm Lens Adapter is a precision-machined metal ring that attaches to a lens with a 55mm-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.

This product it is quite expensive for what is purposed to do. First of all the diameter of the filter adapter do not mach the diameter of the lens adapter. I bought this adapter from two different places and the same issue, the filter will be nonparallel with the lens, maybe not a huge problem but still it is not racket science to made two round element to fit together. I did return the first adapter bought in Japan and I bought another one from BH and was exactly the same, not good. BH said that I can return the adapter and they can send another one but I think I have to live with it like this anyways. My opinion on this product, a good idea but made in a cheap way and not so good quality control. I did test just the 55mm version! Adrian
