The Xume 77mm 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 77mm Lens Adapter

    The Xume 77mm Lens Adapter is a precision-machined metal ring that attaches to a lens with a 77mm-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 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.

77mm Lens Adapter and Filter Holder Starter Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 33.
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 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product Love it! It's pretty straight forward. Your filter is held on by a very secure magnet, and if you use very dark ND filters like I do, you can add and remove them very quickly, in order to adjust your focus and settings. Way quicker and easier than any other setup I have ever used. Don't know why I waited so long to purchase this. The one slight drawback that I can think of is that you need to buy a special lens cap if you want to leave the adapter on your lens when you're done shooting. I haven't purchased it yet, and I'm not sure if I will. It's not that big of a deal to remove the adapter when I'm done shooting, but it might be nice to just leave it on all the time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Severe vignetting, filters easily fall off I will start by saying that without this magnet set, I would not bother with a ND filter or polarizer for my backpacking trips.� Threading a filter on and off my Canon 24mm f1.4L several times a day whilst hiking, in the snow, dust, and rain, is just not going to happen.� So this product meets a need.� But, I must say that throughout normal shoulder carrying, a slight bump knocked my filter off several times, scratching a very expensive ND filter.� The last time this happened, the magnet came unglued from the filter adapter, rendering it useless.� I would like a new set, as this was a Christmas gift. I'd like to see how this would work with a thin filter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Thing! This drastically simplifies the process of switching filters. I usually keep a clear filter on my lenses for protection, and this makes it a breeze to pop that one off and substitute a polarizer or ND filter. Seems very well made. The adapter screws on very smoothly. If you want to keep the adapter on when you're not using a filter, you need to buy the accessory lens cap. On the other hand, if you always have a filter on your camera like I do, your regular lens cap will continue to work like before.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy Great product. Only issue is with wide angle lens there is a slight blockage in each corner of the photo. Zoom in slightly it disappears.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and Secure I bought the starter kit and installed the lens cap on 1 filter holder and a polarizer on the other. Works like a dream even with lightweight jersey gloves. Does not fall off while permitting rotation of polarizer. No more engaging the screw threads after set-up. Adapter and filter together add 7/32nds to length of lens. As with any filter change in the field, it's best to have a predetermined location to store the removed filter. Will order another holder for my ND filter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great idea This is just what I have been looking for, an adapter that easily helps me swap between my main two filters namely my ND10 and polarizing filter - this especially helps with the ND filter as on a number of occasions i have messed up my focusing while trying to screw on my filter. I have marked the adapter down due to the fact that I can no longer use my lens cap which i feel could have been rectified in the design - Xume are very transparent in their description of the adapter. I will be ordering more for my other sizes of lens.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely but vignettes with some variable NDs This is a really great product with one caveat, some filters will vignette on the wide end depending on what they are and how they sit. I have a variable ND filter for my 24-105 (77mm) and on the wide end there is a very noticable vignette. That said, I love the convenience and would rather buy a new variable ND than be without this filter holder.
