The Xume 82mm 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 82mm Lens Adapter

    The Xume 82mm Lens Adapter is a precision-machined metal ring that attaches to a lens with a 82mm-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.

  • 2 x XUME 82mm Filter Holder

    The Xume 82mm Filter Holder is a precision-machined metal ring that attaches to a 82mm 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.

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.

82mm Lens Adapter and Filter Holder Starter Kit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life in the field made easier Xume Lens Adapter and Filter Holder is a blessing in disguise for someone like me. If I'm on vacation or just out and about with my camera and decide to change my filter for some reason, I don't have to worry about trying to thread on a the next filter in a hurry, all I have to do is pull one off and pop on another. I have a problem with a tremor in my hands and if I get in a hurry I tend to shake more. With Xume, I don't have to worry about aligning the threads. The only problem I can see with this product is it can get a little pricy. But I just buy one every so often and before I know it, I have enough for all my lenses.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Addendum to my review. Well, it took my about 5 seconds of actually thinking about the lens cap issue to solve it. Normally, I keep a UV filter on the lens. Looking at the situation, while the filter was mounted on the XUME holders and on the lens, the filters top threads were exposed just like they have always been. I then came to the amazing conclusion I could do what I consistently did before XUME and that would be just put a bare lens cap on the filter. What had tripped me up was that I had thought I needed to put a XUME holder on the lens cap. Why, I do not know. So I took the XUME ring off the cap and viola! Now I can use the cap as easily as before and I have an extra ring for another 82mm filter. I am liking this system very much so far and I plan to outfit all my filters this way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazingly quick These things are amazing. They make taking Lens filters on and off so quick. They’re also going to save my threads for sure because I have some of the Sigma lenses that have plastic threading vs some of the more expensive lenses that are made of metal. Using speed rings tend to have finer threads that can more easily strip the threads of your camera lenses. I’m currently using step up rings between my lenses so I can just use one set of filters and this makes that so efficient. The one downside that will happen is that it will make each filter thicker so when you’re trying to use a stack in a wide lens there is a high likelihood that you will reach the vignette point. In this instance you either have to back off how wide you go or unscrew everything and get your filters down to the essentials only to see if you can bring everything closer to the lens. For everyday use, however, these are amazing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent quality, does the job, but,,, The product has very good design and is made with quality materials and finishing. It does the job perfectly. You will now be changing filters in a flash; gone will be the stress of trying to screw-in a recalcitrant filter while the light going down or subject is moviing. Do not worrying about the magnets failing; they never will. (Unless you are tackled by a rhinoceros; then all bets are off.) One problem I discovered that is I could not stack filters. Normally that is not an issue. However, this is problematic in that it I cannot leave the filter in place then protect it with a lens cap. The filter must be removed and replaced every time I want to put a lens cap on or off. This requires the lens cap must have a XUME ring of its in order to attach to the lens. I really like the instant change feature and will keep this. I will look to see if I can modify my workflow to get around the stacking/lens cap issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes filter swapping much faster but some issues While the Xume adapters definitely make it faster and easier to swap filters they can definitely cause vignetting on wide angle lenses. I'm using one with a Tamron 24-70 f2.8 G2 with Marumi Super DHG CPL and UV filters and there is noticeable complete vignetting in the corners.
