I was wondering who the first person would be to say that
Most consumer films are very very good. Just because consumers are so bad at photography and their cameras aren't worth their weight in dung doesn't mean the films don't use the same modern technologies pro films do. In a way I like them better especially for portraits because you'll get nice well colored, not over-saturated images which work well with skin tones.
Kodak Ultra Max 400. I shoot a lot of it when I'm on the road - when I run short I can almost always find an extra roll or two of 36 exposure at the local CVS. Back home I use a fair amount of Portra 400NC instead.
