XUME XLA72 Overview

  • 1Description

The Xume 72mm Lens Adapter is a precision-machined metal ring that attaches to a lens with a 72mm-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.

    XUME XLA72 Reviews

    72mm Lens Adapter is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very convenient! For nature photography, this is very convenient and quick. Once your filters are attached to the holder, you connect them to the adapter on your lens - no fumbling, no hunting for the threads. Only negative I have found is that the magnet is not quite as strong as I expected - but, if it were stronger, would probably be more difficult to switch.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these things! I usually have a lens hood on my lens, so adding or removing filters is a bit more of a pain than I like. These make it easy to pop them on and off. In very wide-angle it can add a slight vignette to the corners with a filter attached, but I found that to be true with almost any filter, maybe just a touch more with this.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great design but wish is was made of brass Magnetic lens filter mounting is a great idea and work well for me in the field. The lens adapter and filter adapter rings are made of aluminum. I wish the company would offer a brass option for it's products. This would reduce risk that adapters will jam on the lens or filter.

    if i have just the lens adapter on without a filter will it also vignette? I shoot mostly with a 16-35 lens
    Asked by: Thomas
    On my 67mm diameter lens, it showed vignetting at 18mm focal length (crop sensor), so I would not be surprised if it did for your lens. I had to return my adapter, which was disappointing, since the basic idea is a good one.
