Who still uses 35mm/Med Formats?
I use a canon AE-1, Hasselblad 500c/m, and a Nikon FE-2.
I've never taken the Hasselblad out of the country... and It's my baby.
I'll most likely have to take the film with me, because finding medium format film in Central America, I imagine- will be quite difficult... But, then there's the problem of the x-ray machines...and I don't know of any film safe bags big enough for all the film I'll need....and then there's the possibility of my gear being stolen, and blah..
Should I leave the med. format at home (and the potentially epic photos that would go along with it), and just take one of my SLRs?
I know most people don't still use film...so this may fall on deaf ears...but, hey... all responses are welcome.

On the other hand, what good is a camera if it's just sitting at home in your closet? I can see why you are stuck on this question.
It took me a long time to make the switch from film to digital and i have to say it really makes travel so much easier. No worries about the film thru the xray and the xray bags are heavy and they don't hold much anyway. Plus buying film would be a pain. You would have to very cafeful w/ the med. format film and probably have to buy several xray bags.
I think if i was going for a month or so, i would take it. If i was going for a year, i probably wouldn't.
