    With my large format I always use a tripod. For 35mm I often brace the camera against something. However, my 35mm images are mostly just snapshots. If I really want a good image (i.e. make a print) I go back with a LF camera and tripod. However, this might be because I can't enlarge 35mm. But I can enlarge 8x10.

    Whenever it's practical, I try to use a tripod, but I also sympathize with the thought that "if I am going to use a tripod, I might as well shoot large format," and often do shoot large format when it's practical.

    At the same time, there are certain situations where it's more important to be quick and flexible, and it makes sense to develop good handheld technique and use it.

    I use one whenever I can, no matter what I'm shooting. That does not include "shotgunning" and candids of course. I noticed that for me it helps to keep things level, and makes for sharper pictures.
