Just what the title says. I'm just curious about film usage of people here. I included motion picture for the few people here into that. It is film after all.

Gulp...none of the ones in the table....
I use (or have coming) 8x20, whole-plate (6.5"x8.5"), 14x17 and 7x11....I bet there isn't a person who does even 3 of those 4! (that's just my way of finding out!)...:D

Chris, some people use 7x17, 8x20, whole-plate...might be good to add those to the list?

I'm already at the maximum number of entries. Oh well, flawed as it is it's kind of interesting. Guess I should have left out the MP formats.

I shoot 35mm & 16mm motion picture stock for a living (as well as some HD work). It varies per project. At the moment the TV show I am starting is a 35mm show.

For my own stuff I mainly shoot 35mm stills, but I still hope to find the time to indulge in large format. I gave up my medium format TLR gear a while back.

Hey, another person in MP work! There are a few of us on the forum who evidently still believe in big negatives. I'm a 1st starting to move into operating for a living.

I shoot 5x7 and 4x10, but there is no entry for 4x10. I am very surprised how many people are using 5x7. I would have never guest. 5x7 is a great format with its longer aspect ratio then either 4x5 or 8x10.

6x7 on pentax hernia
4 x 5 on a cambo (in some countries aka calumet)
Very occasonally 6 x 9 on the cambo through a horseman back en even more occasionally on a 1951 gevabox.

A year ago I lost the use of my left arm. I haven't shot the pentax since, but the cambo is operable. The digital olympus is as well.
