If you need ideas for film to try...

...then check out the following link:
My Favorite Film After a Year of Shooting

I just happened to find this when I was searching for something else. The whole blog looks pretty good, so now I'm following it via Bloglines.

There's some favorites of mine in that list.

I like the Neopan, and I've always liked the HP5... (giving some of that a try on this town, it seems to be maybe a good look for this town's daytime look, at least.

I haven't tried the Ilford 3200, yet, though.... I've never minded a lot of grain, myself, as long as it has a pleasing look to it, ...sounds like it may be interesting to me. I like fast film.

I'm on my first roll of HP5+. Never had the desire to try it before, but they were out of Tri-X in my local (what passes for a) camera store. How long has Ilford been around now? And why can't I find Agfa paper anymore? I guess old habits die hard...

400H+Neopan400+400X for me
if you're shooting slide, medium format is the way to go...

Oh, Ilford? They've been around for ages, I don't know when they started.

Agfa no longer makes consumer photo stuff, but I believe someone is still making a few of their film and paper formulas. (Did someone say it's the Arista line? ) I've got this Rodinal copy from 'Photographer's Formulary' that I keep meaning to try.

I think I'm settling into being an ISO 400 shooter as well (barring 2 stop pushes of B&W)

Oddly, I'm going Kodak: Tri-X 400 and I'm seeing good things from Portra 400VC; first roll should be done before the month's out. I like Fuji 160C, but it's a little hard to scan and too slow in many cases.

i like tri-x, but i find it a bit too gritty. neopan is a bit smoother in my eyes.
i use 400H partly because B&H sells it for $4 a roll and because i do like the colours out of it, however the first time i scanned it, it did seem to require some curve adjustments to get the colors right.
