    6x6 - square is just not for me. On the end I have sold my rolleiflex - it is not right that such a beauty of a machine sits unused , later I tried again with agfa isolette - sold it, again with adox golf - sold it. Now I have holga that sits there, together with polaroid back.

    4X5. Like Ralph, too much trouble. Every time I go back to it, I quickly realize that is just not for me. Life is full of wonderful and fleeting moments, and with large format they just go by while I play around looking like a demented Ansel 35mm is good enough for me, and medium format follows closely.

    All of my film cameras get attention fairly often. I don't buy anything to have it sit. Except the digitals, apparently...

    I've abandoned 35mm. My kit is a dinosaur (Canon FD, thanks, Canon) and it's getting tough to focus some of the lenses as my eyes age. I much prefer MF and LF for anything serious, and now use an electronic gadget that claims to be a camera for the little things I'm not serious about. I will peddle my 35mm gear once my kids are done with high school electives, or give it to them. It's worth pennies on the dollar for what I paid for it all.

    I had a 4x5 camera for a couple years, it was just far too slow for my style of shooting and frankly much of the work I see from the format nowadays looks like it was too slow for the photographer that used it as well....

    6x6 is my bread and butter and exactly how I like to frame the world, and it is very fast in terms of my reaction time. 35mm gets the nod due to always having a small camera with me such as an FM3A or an M3. 35mm also shares its use with my XPan, a simply brilliant format and look for films like HIE, Techpan and Tri-x.

    If I shot large format again, it would be ULF, at least 11" x 14" and contact prints only..

    This is too funny. I love 4x5, but do prefer medium format when i anticipate that i'll put on the "demented Ansel" show.

    I take turns orphaning various formats .

    But only temporarily each time.

    4x5. I have a wonderful Crown Graphic, with all possible holders, and I've only used it once. And with several boxes of Acros Quikloads expiring in my freezer as we speak.

    Next in line would be pinhole cameras - I have a few, want to get more, but rarely shoot with them. In both cases they require more advanced planning and forethought than I'm used to for my regular style of shooting.
