All,

I am getting ready for a trip shooting along the Murray River in Australia. While I am primarily going to be shooting large format (4x5) Velvia F100, I thought that I would try some B&W as well.

I would like suggestions on what type/brand of B&W film would be a good choice. I prefer a film that is fined grained, but has a good tonal range and would look good selenium toned. My primary subjects will be the Gum Trees (Eucalyptus), the river itself, and foilage along the river - mostly I will shoot landscapes, although I will visit some historic towns along the way and will shoot some of the paddlewheelers and historic buildings.

Suggestions are appreciated? Thanks in advance.
