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.

Good idea in principle, but, i fear i would be cleaning the lens even ore than i already do using this system.

If you have lots of filters and lots of lenses this is a very expensive way to be lazy!

Genius idea, yes, it could become costly, but I wouldn't call it lazy, just faster.

Vignetting will become even more of a problem for some lens.

So instead of one 'fiddling' session - you now have two.
