I shoot 35mm with an Olympus OM system,
with a very ageing Hasselblad and lenses.
And My favourite a 5x4 system based around a Shen Hao
and a 1960's Calumet with a collection of newish and very old lenses.
use a condenser Omega D2V and a DeVere 504 which are wonderful enlargers.
I use mainly
APX 100 in 35mm and medium format with Efke 100 and also Foma 200 for 5x4.
With the passing of Agfa and Agfa products I have had to look to other products in my darkroom.
I use Rodinal, D76 and some homebrewed film developers.
After a visit to America in 2005 I began using BTZS as my preferred complete
system of film testing and exposure. Phil Davis the author of the system
has finally solved the mysteries of black and white exposure and development.
