New Magnetic Lens Filters From Xume - The process of changing filters just got a whole lot simpler thanks to Xume and magnets.
OK, screwing on a filter to the front of your lens isn't exactly rocket science but when time is of the essence, having a filter that just 'clicks' to the front of your lens would be handy to have. Xume's Quick-Release Adapters, which use magnets to fit filters in place, let you mount filters in any orientation, there's nothing to align and no moving parts. There is a little bit of work you have to do before you head out of the door though which involves fitting a magnetic adapter to each of your lenses and putting your filters in magnetic rings.
The adapters are only available in the USA for the moment and the Holder's priced at $11.95 while the lens adapter's available for $32.95.
