I have a chance to purchase a choice of one of these cameras. I am a bit puzzled by the 530. It has a 70 mm lens and two red windows. Are the formats 6x9 and 6x4.5? It occurred to me that at 6x9 the lens may act as a wide angle because every 6x9 that i own has a 105 mm lens. Am I correct about the wide angle aspect?

Yes (recommended)
That, as far as I remember, takes 8 shots at 6X9 on 120 film but should have a mask inlay with it for taking 16 shots at 4.5X6. I believe that's what the second window is for.

With a 70mm lens, this will be for 16-on, 6x4.5 only. The 70mm Tessars weren't wide-angle, and would not cover 6x9. I don't think Super Ikontas were made with dual masks - is the film gate 6x4.5, and the viewfinder upright? .
It's still an exceptionally nice camera.
