Looking (not urgently) to add a 6x9 folder to my bag here. Not set on any particular one, but I do want one with a rangefinder (coupled or non, both fine). Models that look good so far are the Agfa Record iii, Voigtländer Bessa II or RF, Zeiss 530 or 531 Super Ikontas, maybe a Moskva 5 (it’s a little heavier but people do seem to like them. I know prices for this variety of cameras can cover quite a range, not sure what my budget is.

Please do find my “120 folder advice wanted” thread and chat there, or reply here. Are there others out there I should look for?
Cheers!

I would look for something post WWII German with a Schneider lens in a Compur shutter. I'm assuming that you're after a folding camera, doesn't necessarily need to have a rangefinder built-in. I love 6x9 format.

The Welta Weltur 6x9 is very nice too.

The Welta Weltur 6x9 is a really nice camera (they're also made in 6x4.5 and 6x6). Very well-made and a pleasure to use.
