day trip to Cambridge -- we went to the Park'n'Ride. I used my Mamiya C220 + 80mm f2.8 'Blue Dot' Sekor set for B&W -- outdated Agfa APX 100 processed in home-made ID 11 1+1

Lovely tones as usual Pete.
A very nice lens for sure as well

Are you keeping tabs on what films are most resilient to Father Time? I suppose you would need to know their history, where and how they have been kept etc to make any fair comparison.

Yes -- I have lots of outdated films but I get some given and do not know how they have been stored so I usually do a short length and cut and process it. With SLIDE film I do not do E6 so have to use a whole film and look at the results.

I was very LUCKY with this C220 -- a fellow Camera Club member gave it to me -- it had been in his loft for years -- hardly used -- he was ill -- then he died but I used to e-mail him results showing it in use. Then I got a 135mm f4.5 'Blue Dot' Sekor set off e-bay in good condition for £75 -- ( Don't tell the WIFE !!

Good on you Pete.
I have the C330 and it is my favourite 120 camera by a long way
