    My own stats are something like 80& to 90% ISO 400 and the rest a slow speed film like Ilford Pan F. Nowadays Kodak 400TX is so fine grained that to me it is the most useful. I do also use Eastman Double-X 5222 at an EI of 400 just like TX.

    I use Ilford HP5+ for 5x7, 120, and 35mm. The odd roll of Pan-F+ 120 gets tossed into the mix when I shoot pinhole.

    The simpler the better.

    For color I use whatever C41 I can lay my hands on while I practice at developing that film at home. When I get around to printing color neg film on RA4 I will probably settle on a single emulsion.

    For 35mm I usually shoot 400 speed film since if it's too bright and contrasty I'm not often shooting anyway so a slower film is not often my best option for handheld street/documentary rangefinder or SLR shooting. That said if I'm using a faster lens or it's a day that's not too dark 100-125 film are preferred as I like to open up for less DOF when I can. Hate it when due to a 400 speed film and a camera with max 1/250 or 1/500 speeds I'm forced to shoot at f/11 or more. That said with MF cameras I'll often prefer 100-125 speed film if I'm shooting handheld as I often do with my Rolleiflexes but will go 400 when the conditions require. If I'm shooting landscapes or botanicals I'll go to a tripod usually with a MF camera at least and then it's often 25-50 speed films. Luckily I did stash away decent amounts of Plus-X, APX25 and Agfapan 25 in 120 a few years back and go with those for many of my fern, flower or landscape images and always use a tripod.

    I can't understand these photogs who avoid sunny day shooting-That's when I like to get out, usually 2-5pm w/a roll or two of medium speed.

    Yeah, I know it's almost like nothing interesting happens ever happens between 8 and 5 5-days-a-week.
