    I used expired 220 film on the SWC during a trip to Germany last summer.

    link: SWC Germany 2016 (film 1) - raid

    The first film gave me 21 images, and some were underexposed while other showed a light leak, which I believe is not from the camera but from the old film.

    I tried out different digital manipulations on the digital files from the film.
    Next time, I may just use fresh 120 film. It would be different.

    How expired was this film? Did you refrigerate or freeze it?

    Most look good, a couple look like the density is higher than normal.
    This camera is worth shooting fresh film.

    Yes, it is worth new film, Brian. I am just completing my old stock of 220 frozen film.

    If you are going to shoot expired 220....consider in an old beater TLR or a Holga. Otherwise, sell your stash and get new.

    I've lately had to pass on several SWC's FS.....because I bought a Brooks Veriwide. I was full of remorse.

    Just one person's opinion.

    These days.....saving my "powder" for a M240. I think I missed the short window of opportunity to buy at a low....as now the prices are kind of steady. Guess first batch of M10 used up.

    I have plenty of fresh 120 film, Hap. I enjoy "regular looking" images with the M9, say, but I love to create images from old film too. Photography to me is not a serious issue. I enjoy it all.

    Hi Carl,
    It is very refreshing and exciting to shoot with the SWC. It is all very basic and simple. No focusing is needed most of the time. I use it like an AF camera.

    I'm glad you shoot film! Those look great. The first set looks like paintings at the Pensacola Art Co-Op.

    For some reason, 22 images were free of any light leaks in Film 3, and the two images that had light leaks shows only a small amount of light leakage.
