- Weight of Zeiss Ikon Ikonta 521/16 (6x6 folding camera): 0.45kg (1 lb) / this is approximate, because there were numerous models with different lenses and shutters. But this probably is reasonably accurate. The Super Ikonta models -- particularly the 531/16, 532/16 and 533/16 -- weigh significantly more (and cost more, too).
Oh yes, if it's weight then an old molding folder is the way to go for sure. That's kind of why I suggest a Nettar or Ikonta too, so he can shoot with his Canon F1 and carry along the little folder for a medium format shot. That's why I like my little folders 'cause they are easy to carry everywhere. JohnW
