I just got into b/w photography and enjoy it. What would be your suggestion for a faster film combination to be used on travel. I don't mind the grain so much. Ie to be used in bright daytime and at night ie - alleyways of Tokyo, Hong Kong, Bangkok etc .. that kinda stuff. Railway station. I do have a F1.8 prime that I use. I have thought about Tri-X pushed to 1600 but not sure how that would stand, or how about Delta 400 pushed to 1600. No flash will be used. Handheld. I live in New Zealand so we probably cannot get as much film developers as you guys so just the more standard stuff please. I think with my store I have to hunt or preorder Kodak developers but they tend to hold Ilford stuff. Preferably if it is a powder developer since I don't shoot tons of them or a long life storage in a conc bottle but again I shoot maybe a roll a month. The easy stuff I can get I know is Ilford Microphen. It would be a bonus if it can develop 100 speed film at 100 speed due to my low volume shooting. Or maybe I need to collect my film up in batches and develop that way ... (?).
I shoot color slides too so I cannot have 2 different speeds of b/w by the way.
