I recently did just that. And what a relief. In my case, to all the 35mm and MF gear, I finally had to say goodbye. Everything that was related to roll-film . . . gone. I even purged the darkroom equipment that was related to roll-film. It took me some seven years to acquire it all, and about six months to make it all disappear. I have always had this nagging desire to concentrate on the large formats only, but always found myself enticed by the false convenience of roll-film. Ultimately there was too much anxiety associated with roll film. And putting all that labor and resources into a tiny frame just was no longer worth it. I suppose I was also worried that I might go through some form of withdraw if I wasn't carrying a snapshot camera everywhere I went. Those symptoms never materialized. And now if I'm going to carry a camera it will either be a 4x5, a 5x7, or a half-plate. Do I really need all those cameras?
