    I have found an Ikonta 524/16 in working condition and would like to know exactly what types of film I would need or that are compatible.

    Thanks,
    Steph:hugs:

    The various Ikonta B models take 120 roll film. Given the limitations of the shutter speed range, the fastest film it can handle under daylight conditions would be ISO400, though only barely. You are probably better off with an ISO 100 film.

    I would suggest either color negative (aka color print) film or B&W. Both would have adequate latitude to deal with the inevitable shutter speed inaccuracies common to half century old leaf shutters.
