XUME XFH77 overview

  • 1Description

The Xume 77mm Filter Holder is a precision-machined metal ring that attaches to a 77mm 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.

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 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.

    XUME XFH77 reviews

    77mm Filter Holder is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love the idea, until I lost a filter I really liked the Xume adapters and how snappy it is to switch filters. It fits snug and is well made. Two downsides: 1.Like others have mentioned, it can cause some extra vignetting at wider angles. 2. I recently lost a $120 ND filter because of it. When moving my gear over on a rocky ocean shore, I accidentally bumped the filter with my leg and it popped right off and rolled down the rocky shore into the ocean. Too deep to get back and probably scratched/ruined anyway. So - I love the idea and bought a bunch of these. But I'll probably go back to not using them and using an extra few seconds to attach filters the old-school way.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great, just not at 24mm I use a circular polarizer a lot on my Nikon 24-70 f2.8 and I really liked the idea of being able to simply snap it on and off as needed. I purchased a few of the XUME filter and lens holder. They work as advertised, except that when coupled with the 77mm lens holder and the circular polarizer, the kit becomes too thick and it causes pronounced vignetting at 24mm. I was forced to compose my shots at around 28mm, but I feel thats a pretty major tradeoff. As such, I stopped using it altogether on my 24-70. I wish they had a version of this holder for wide-angle lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Read The Specs Before you complain! I just finished ordering pair of 55 mm and 77 mm holders and mounts. I just read the previous reviews posted. They're all complaining it does not work well without vignetting at wide angle below 35mm Setting on zoom lenses. If they just get off their butts and read the instructions it clearly states there shall be vignetting below 35mm or the equivalent. Then they cry the product does not work correctly. Problem is the reviewer did not evaluate the instructions for the product before saying it was bad. After the brown truck delivers the products I will write an evaluation of my humble opinion but it's got to be a better then trying to focus through 3.0 ND filter.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best solution for quick filter changes 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding product! Super product! Not only for filters but also for lens cap. So much easier - I may actually start using my filters more because now they are so easy to put on and take off. No more locked threads or need for filter wrenches. Does not interfere with the use of the hood on my Nikon 28 - 300mm lens. I'm going to super clue one of the adapters to my lens cap then - no more struggling with the awkward spring clip!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great solution for dark filters I use this system for long exposure photography. It allows me to quickly remove the filters for adjustments and light readings. It seems to be well made and the filters snap on with the right amount of snuggness. I use in with a Tokina 11-16 and a Hitech Firecrest filter and there is just a small amount of vignetting at 11mm and it's gone by 12mm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soooooooooo NICE!!! This is the perfect quick-change solution for any filtering system. I use this along with the Lee 100mm Filter system for filmmaking, it makes switching filters and lenses quick and effortless. The magnets are strong and I have no fear of them not gipping. It's worth the investment to outfit all your lenses and filters with these.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good product These Xume magnetic filter holders allow quick and easy changing of filters without fussing with screw threads. Switch from a star filter to a polarizer in seconds. Make sure to order one for your lens cap or order their magnetic cap. Be careful to wedge the release buttons of your cap so as not to accidentally release the ring.
