Actuator for Hasselblad V lenses

The Silvestri Actuator adapts Hasselblad lenses from the V series with Silvestri cameras for digital use. It performs the cocking and triggering functions normally executed inside the Hasselblad body. Future versions of Actuator, on special adapter boards, will link these same lenses to Linhof, Sinar and other popular view cameras.


This represents a remarkable step forward for many professional photographers. The generous image circles of Hasselblad lenses (75mm or more for many focal lengths) make them attractive for use with digital backs. Full corrective movements (shift, tilt, swing) are now available for those lenses.
