Just to weigh in,

I tried Fuji's color film but didn't like it, really. If I'm going to buy color film, it's going to be made by Kodak from now on.

Black and white film has a LOT of manufacturers, so I'm still trying to get a feel for all of them. I like Ilford's offerings very much though. Regardless, I nearly always use a Kodak developer, either HC-110 or my new favorite, XTOL.
