The Silvestri Bicam is a pancake style metal camera of traditional medium format size, with a rise/fall movement, for digital or analog photography. The optional #7002 Flexi Maxi Bellows, attached to the front of the body, adds shift, swing and tilt. Used with the Flexi Maxi, Bicam accepts Schneider and Rodenstock lenses in normal Copal #0 mounts, each lens being fitted with a Silvestri Bayonet Adapter Ring. Used without the bellows, the Bicam accepts only the special Silvestri versions of these lenses, with bayonet/helical mounts. Such lenses are fitted to the Bicam by means of a flat Silvestri lensboard (#1119).

The lens range for the Bicam is 23-150mm. The 24mm and one version of the 35mm (both are Schneiders) cannot be used with bellows and must be purchased from Silvestri in custom-mounted lensboards.

Movement of Bicam without bellows: rise/fall 15+15mm. Additional movements with bellows: shift 15+15mm, swing/tilt 15+15°. Weight of Bicam for digital use (with Flexi Maxi but without Analog Back Adapter): 3.8 lb. Without Flexi Maxi 2.2 lb.

The Bicam accepts front and back accessories for digital and analog usage. All of Bicam’s back accessories for digital usage, including sliding back adapters and fixed back adapters, are listed under “Digital Adapters” in a later section.

Some of the pictures listed here show these digital accessories, but the subjects are all repeated and fully explained in a later section on digital adapters.

The back accessories for analog usage are listed immediately below. Also listed here are the front accessories for both digital and analog.
