    Unless your choice of subjects is serverely restricted either by personal preference or by your job you will need *at least* a slow speed film like Ilford Pan F+ and also a fast film like Tri-X.

    For 35mm color I use Fuji Superior usually 400 and occasionally if need by 800 speed which is impressive for the speed.

    For B&W also 35mm usually Delta 400.

    As this was posted in the Color area, I would say I have a few favorites depending on what I am shooting...

    Fuji Velvia - Landscape(Slide Film)
    Kodak E100VS - Fall Colors(Slide Film)
    Fuji Provia - People(Slide Film)
    Fuji Reala - General Purpose(Print Film)
    Fuji NPS - Weddings and such(Print Film)

    For black and white, I have shot alot of Tri-x and Delta.

    I don't shoot it much (anymore), but I've always liked Kodachrome 64...

    When I do shoot 35mm color these days, it's usually one of the Fuji color negative materials (NPS, NPH).

    Kodachrome. I shoot a lot of trains, and in railfan circles there is a phenomon called FHB, or Fuji Headlight Blob, where there is always a secondary image caused by the headlights of the trains. Kodachrome has the antihalation backing that doesn't form FHB.

    HP5+ & FP4+ in bulk rolls.
    Fuji Neopan 400
    Fuji Reala
    I still have about 30 rolls of Konica Pan 100 36 frame rolls. It's really a beautiful grainy traditional B&W neg film. I bought 200 rolls for $100.00 of a dealer some years ago, one of my really better moves in photography.

    I forgot, I also have two bulk rolls of APX100 awaiting a spare bulk film loader.

    Dave, I have three bulk loaders at the moment, cannot envisage myself really needing another one.

    Originally I used one for fast B&W, one for slow B&W, with the last reserved for 160 colour neg for weddings.

    These days I shoot strictly for fun and all three are loaded with various B&W films, including at the moment, one with Ilford security film. Which I have worked out is HP5 with no markings on the rebates and a thicker base, but at $5.00 a roll for 30 metres, I'm laughing.

    Thanks for thinking of me anyway.

    Mick.
