    I like Kodak's Plus-X. It has a traditional "cubic" grain structure, which makes it look more like a classic B&W print. However, it has finer grain than Tri-X, which makes for better enlargements.

    Welcome to the forum! There have been some suggestions, all of them good, the classic Kodak Plus-X or Ilford FP4, or the more modern emulsion Ilford Delta films or Kodak T films. Try them all and see which you prefer. In my view the classic emulsions are ideal for landscape giving lovely tonality and good sharpness.

    Maybe for landscapes in 35mm you want to go down in grain and up in resolution. So B&W films less then iso 100 available are:
    Rollei Retro 80S (iso 64-80), Ilford Pan F+ (iso 50), Efke 50-25 (iso 50-25), Rollei Pan 25 (iso 25), ATP1.1 (Tech Pan) iso 32 and some micro films but very slow in speed.

    And indeed: Classic emulsions are ideal for landscape.

    Hello and welcome to APUG! Most of Kodak and Ilford B&W films are excellent. You could try Kodak's T-Max film, either 100 or 400.
