What about vignetting?

All Xume rings have an extremely low profile (slightly thicker than an average step ring). In most set ups you won’t experience any vignetting issues. The only exception to this are if you are using a full-frame sensor camera with a wide lens below 24mm or a cropped sensor with a wide lens below 17mm. In these situations you may experience very slight to moderate vignetting.

Is the magnetic connection secure?

Yes absolutely. The force required to remove a filter is significantly greater than your camera would ever be subjected to during normal use. Having said that, they are also easy to remove when necessary. If you are concerned about accidental detachment, when using heavier filters (eg. variable ND filters) we would suggest the use of an over the lens type hood.

Can I use step rings?

Yes, but please bear in mind that step rings make it impossible to use an over-the-lens hood. If necessary, the preferred method is to use a step-up ring on your lens and the next higher size filter and adapter. In other words a 77-82mm step ring on your lens with an 82mm filter with Xume adapters. We don’t recommend a step down ring on a filter as it adds wright and increases the change of accidental detachment.
