    Fuji Neopan ACROS is ISO 100 film. Adox CHS 100 is an interesting film.

    Yep!

    Tri-X is as good as it gets. For a beginner, and for a seasoned expert.
    If she wants finer grain in the future, there are lots of good alternatives. You can find 400-speed films with less grain than Tri-X, but few that looks as good.

    I'm going to vote for the Arista Premium, its cheap and looks very nice. If they still carried it, I would have suggested the Legacy Pro brand, it was an amazing film and had a really good price too.

    I completely forgot to mention Photo Warehouse (UlltrafineOnline.com) as they are right there in Ventura. They have all kinds of film and at very low prices.

    Huh. I didn't even know these guys existed. They're only 7 miles from my office! Hmmm...I'll have to take a look. Nothing like buying local when you can.

    Neopan Acros

    Get a cheap $20 IR filter off ebay from HK or China (I've used one they work very well) and get her some Retro 80s or Retro 400s or Rollei IR400.. they should all be inexpensive, and give quite a thrill/kick of a different image.
