    Tri-x.....for me, 35mm is about handheld and beautiful grain!

    The best is situational because we still have so many choices available.

    Best Black & White film: Tri-X and Plus-X
    Best IR film: HIE, too bad it in no longer available
    Best Color Print film: UC 400 for Red Rock in the Utah and Arizona, otherwise again it depends on the situation. Example: I would use Kodak NC or Kodak VC for portraits and weddings but for general photography there is a wide range of selections based on the subject, lighting, mood ...
    Best Slide film: I have not shot slides in many years so I cannot say at this point.
    Best Night Photography film: The Tungsten films for color

    For color the film would have to be Kodachrome 25. I see for most it's hard to choose just one film.

    From what I remember way back when I shot more 35mm, I liked Panatomic-X and Kodachrome 25. In more recent times I have shot Plus-X and the Ektars. If I were to pursue 35mm more heavily today I'd want to try some of the newer B&W stuff - Acros, PanF, etc. that I've been playing with in 120.

    Best as in easiest to handle, sharp, flexible for a wide-range of situations, and very high quality? Easy:

    Kodak Tri-X.

    Aesthetic preference? APX100. But the preference is not so strong that I would always choose it first. I like lots of films for different reasons.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.
