So lately I've been using my AE-1 along with my D50 and have been getting pretty interested in film. Any suggestions or favorites on a film brand. I've personally been skipping around with different brands and haven't come across the "perfect role".

I used to use Kodak Tri-X 400 BW film. Love the grain on that sucka. Plus since it was 400, it was good for most of the lighting I got.

Thats actually my current favorite, I shot my brothers car with a roll of it and it turned out nice. And I was talking about either bw or color, doesn't matter.

Tri-x is nice and versatile. For landscapes I LOVE Fuji Velvia 50 slide film. It produces some of the most beautiful, warm tones I've ever seen.

ilford FP5 is good for mid range b/w and you can find it at art stores sometimes. Tri-x can be a bitch to open if you develop your own stuff but that might just be how it is with all commercial film is.

Colour film, Kodak 160 and 400 VC rule.
Black and white film, Ilford delta 100.
They all have a really nice fine grain, and the colours on the VC are incredible considering it's not a slide film.
