TALOS system

SILVESTRI is happy to introduce the new TALOS system, a complete line of Filter Holders, Lens Hood Compendium and accessories for the professional photographers and for those who like to have control of their images.

After a first period of surprise and adaptation to the digital photography, the taste for the research and elaboration of the photographic image is coming back. The need to find a creative language cannot do without those tools that enable to manage and enhance the photographic image.

The lens accessories have always been essential tools for the photographer’s creativity.
For the best functioning they have to be well designed, simple, robust, easy to use and made with suitable materials to undergo the stress of an intense use in all the different situations that may occur.
The Silvestri Filter Holders, Lens Hoods and Compendiums have been designed and manufactured to satisfy these needs with a choice of materials and solutions that ensure their sturdiness, versatility and reliability in every situation, even the most difficult one.
The materials used are: Anodized aluminium, stainless steel, chromed brass.
Any element can unfasten or unscrew because of the vibrations during the transport. The metal elements and the stainless steel springs do not suffer the extreme temperatures which instead harden or soften the plastics.
Fully worked with CNC machine tools, the Silvestri Filter Holders and their accessories have high precision ensuring accurate geometries and trustable centering with quality lenses.
The leading features are:

Centering of the diameters on the optical axis
Precise alignment with the image plane
Possibility to mount and dismount the Filter Holder with one hand.
Perfect lightproof ensured on the ring fitting and with a neoprene rubber seal on the filter side for the 10 stop ND filters
Long lasting reliability and duration of the components.

The TALOS system is a modular system in evolution offering present and future solutions with trustable and suitable professional accessories.
Italian design and manufacturing studied with care to the details, simple to use and trustable.
