What kind of film should I........?

I just purchased a Pentax ZX-10 35mm SLR Film Camera, it has been about 40 years since I used a film camera. Can you recommend me what film should I buy to be used in this camera? I intend to use it for use with Takumars, and with AF lenses.

any you can get should work well. I'd pay more attention to making sure the filmyou buy is fresh and the processor reliable.
the camera will read the film speed off the canister and life will be good.

I really like 'Ilford XP2 super 400' B&W film... It can be processed anywhere that does colour processing or I can chuck it at my climbing partner who has his own darkroom set-up and let him take the p**s...

If you want to do color, I like the rendition of Kodak Portra 400 - very natural color. It also scans very well.
