Ilford Delta 400 (135, 30m, 400ISO)
The fine grain 400ISO Ilford film, super nice tonal range and grain structure but, dude, you gotta nail your exposures. And you can't just check the back roll a dial and reshoot (well, you can but you won't see anything on the back!) So make sure your meter battery is good or your exposure eye is accurate. Great for architectural or landscape photography. Probs a bit quick for landscape but still good.
