    I've always been partial to Ilford 400 Delta, particularly for shooting long
    lens candids - it gives you heaps of speed and latitude with good grain
    considering the speed. That said, I tend to print on the contrastier side,
    so perhaps it suits my style.

    in Rodinal (everything goes better in Rodinal :-)

    Tmax 100 for portraits - nice red sensitivity
    APX100 for general work (1+50 dev concentrations to bend the curve)
    Neopan 100 (fits between the colour sensitivities of Tmax and APX)
    T3200 - love the grain (EI 1600)
    Tri-X for that 'type 2475' look but with better contrast control
    Ilford anything for metalwork, especially fp4+

    and then there's Technical Pan (reverent moment of awe) - god of all films :-)

    dev at 1+300 for totally awesome images

    I agree.. TechPan is a wonderful film. And of course Kodak High Speed Infra
    Red (1:25 Rodinal) for the surreal touch.
