Soldering camera cable

Does anybody know if the camera ribbon cable can withstand soldering? I'd like to join a PiZero-to-camera adapter cable to a normal cable without using extra intermediate connectors.

I'd suspect you're likely to melt the plastic or lift the metal strips off the plastic well before any solder melts.

You could experiment with conductive adhesives or just buy a longer cable.
