The Xume 58mm 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 58mm Lens Adapter

    The Xume 58mm Lens Adapter is a precision-machined metal ring that attaches to a lens with a 58mm-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.

    The Xume 58mm Filter Holder is a precision-machined metal ring that attaches to a 58mm 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.

58mm Lens Adapter and Filter Holder Starter Kit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Xume Magnetic filter holders are Great!!! These magnetic filter holders are such a great idea!! I keep a UV filter on all my lens for protection against scratches on the lens glass. This means that anytime I want to use a ND or polarizing filter, I have to go through the cumbersome process of unscrewing and screwing on lens. The Xume magnetic rings greatly simplify this process--just a firm tug pops of the UV filter and the other filter just snaps on with a secure magnetic seal. Really makes switching out filters a breeze! I have put an Xume lens holder on all my lens and a corresponding filter holder on all my filters. They work well on all the filter brands I have: Heliopan, Cokin and B&W. these are the most useful new accessories in my camera bag!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Genius ! No more screwing around ! Ingenious system for quickly changing filters on the fly. I'm using this filter adaptor and holder system with Panasonic Lumix 12-35 and 35-100 lenses mounted on GH3 bodies. I photograph and video kayaking, fly fishing,outdoor travel, lifestyle ,landscapes. I'm constantly using and switching between a polarizer and variable neutral density filter. The Manfrotto Xume filter system makes this change quick and effortless. Things happen fast on the water with rapidly changing conditions. The holder and adapters are precision machined and feature knurled tabs to make filter removal easy. The magnets hold the filters securely in place. The rings have a very slim profile and I do not get vignetting with my widest lens ( 12mm or 24mm equivalent on 35mm Full Frame ) using a Hoya HD Circular Polarizer. I'm also able to use my original Lumix lens hoods with the Xume system if needed. I will definitely be adding additional Xume lens adaptors and filter holders to my other camera and lens systems soon. This set-up ROCKS !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Revolutionizes using filters Finally, a quick and sturdy way to change and use filters. No more wasted time screwing in and unscrewing filters. No longer need filter wrenches in case one gets cross threaded. Magnets hold filters securely, but are easy to remove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My best accessory I have used this on other lenses and makes it simple to attach and remove a filter. This works best with variable filters such a variable ND filter
