    I hate all photography: with cameras, accessories, books, travel... I could have bought a racehorse or small yacht by now.

    I don't think about film formats in terms of technical quality anymore. Instead I think about differences in the appearance of the outcome and the differences in handling.
    For some subjects I prefer the grainy look of 35mm film. Others suits the smother appearance of MF better. Usually landscape. And for some the setup and handling of the 4x5 becomes an event in itself, influencing the stance of my subject (groups of people) in a certain way which, together with the three dimensional look of the prints, makes for the charm of the pictures.
    But when it comes to darkroom work, I much prefer MF.

    I too, have gone that road. I was happy shooting 35mm but one day after having a few too many beers I bought an innocent-looking Kodak Brownie 120 camera off evilbay. Then came the folding pre-WWII Ikon, then I built a 67 medium format view camera just for the kicks. And then, only a few months later, came the lovely Crown Graphic and a few months later I bought a Rodenstock Grandagon as an offering for the LF gods. And now you might be asking, which format am I aiming for now? Well, I have a 8x10 camera in the making! This thing is addictive I tell you.

    Its only printing for me. I am happy with 135 and 120. I may try LF pinhole one day, but now I find most of the joy in the printing and carrying simple gear.

    I don't think any of my cameras can replace each other. There is a place for 6x7, 6x6 and 35mm otherwise I would have sold them all and kept just one. Yes it does generally start with "is there a reason why I would not take the RB67" everytime I want to shoot something and to be honest the Hasselblad probably gets the most use as I like the square format most but there are times when I just run around with the EOS 3 and the 40 and I just feel so free to do whatever I want.

    With a 35mm camera you have to have a very good negative to enlarge it to a quality 20"X16"exhibition print, with a M/F camera you can enlarge every negative to 20"X16".

    In my living room I am happy with seven 8"x10" prints from APX 100 135 negatives. Four in landscape and three in portrait orientation.

    I found the same when I bought my RB67, I took the 35mm kit out much less often. I don't have the heart to part with it, and the compact nature of one Nikon FM3a and a 35mm f2 is still an attraction. 35mm is much better for macro as 1:1 on 35mm gives the same object size on the frame as 1:1 on 120, you just get more space around it. I love the look of printed monochrome MF, such creamy tones, but then grain in 35mm can be a real treat as well. Basically having two systems means that I do half the amount of photography on each as I used to.

    For me, 35mm had been relegated to use in conditions where a weather sealed camera is needed, or for shooting slides. I find the print quality of 35mm to certainly be acceptable, but I don't like the 3:2 aspect ratio. I tend to mostly shoot 6x6 using old folders. I don't know why, I have newer "better" cameras with modern lenses, but I just like using antique folders for some reason.

    Personally, I don't plan to give up on 35mm anytime soon but I find that the 645 system that I have has given me great pictures with very little compromise in portability.
