B&W films? - Photography

What B&W would people reccomend for nature photogrpahy? I'm going to want something versitile, low light, bright light, etc. I'm going on a camping trip for 3 days and will be in all sorts of conditions. Preferably something not too contrasty. I've used Kodak's 125PK and didn't like it too much because of the extreme contrast. Thanks, JASON...

    I'll second that!

    XP2 400...I have never seen a grainy photo yet with it, even pushed to
    1600, it was very sharp.

    The HP5 adds a little grain (from my experience anyhow) if that is what you
    are looking for.

    I agree with XP.....it is a moderate contrast film, very wide latitude, and
    is C41 process so the local one hour shop can develop it.

    For an ordinary black and white film, you might try Tri-X (400TX). It's a
    little bit less contrasty than PX. You might also try devloping PX less or
    developing in a lower contrast developer. FP4+ may also suit you. If you
    don't mind going to a C41 film, Ilford XP2 is excellent. Kodak 400CN is
    similar.
