Speaking to the films, I have used and liked Efke KB25 in 35mm and Arista.edu Ultra 100 (which is rebranded Fomapan) in 120 film. The Efke KB25 is a particularly beautiful film. I developed both in Rodinal. I found both hard to work with, however, mostly because the films curled like crazy after development. Still, both are nice films. I don't have anything scanned, but I know you can find many images shot with these films on Flickr.
Fuji Acros 100 is a film I use regularly in 120. It is first quality and well-priced. Highly recommended.
