    Matt thanks for all the help, I really appreciate it.

    Hello Jeff, I don't have a digital camera, actually this is my first time using a camera other than my phone's or
    a point and shoot.

    Welcome to APUG. Depending on your phone, if it is a smartphone there's an app for that and it's free. Stick with one film until you get comfortable with different lighting and shooting situations, jumping from one film to another as well as different speeds of film can create confussion. I would suggest Kodak BW400CN as it is a good stable, moderate speed film that produce excellent results. The only draw back to it would be that it is a C-41 film that must be developed at a specific temp for best results. Not bad if you are sending your film out but when it comes time for you to start developing on your own, well let's just say it's difficult. The Illford HP5+ is another good film and if you ever plan to develop Illford chems are easy to use and very forgiving

    The Kodak film can be bought at CVS or Walgreens which makes it convenient. The Illford can only be found at true camera stores or off the web. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the response Joel; I will look into that film. I found that app a few days ago and its definitely going to help me.

    One question Joel, and anybody who wants to answer, Have you ever used thedarkroom.com to develop film? I see the ad here on APUG and just wondering if they do a better job than Walgreens or CVS

    Any pro lab will be worlds better than CVS or walgreens. Check in your area for a camera store that sells film they should either be able to develop and print for you or can send it off. I use Richards Photo Lab in California for my fine art work but I have used walgreens for my kick around test rolls if I'm in a hurry.
