Who do you like the best for Film, and companies that develop film? Thanks in advance.

I personally like Ilford. I use their FP4+ and Delta 400. I do my own developing. The FP4+ is used in my view camera and 120 cameras. The Delta 400 is for 35mm.

So the FP4+ you can't use for 35 mm?

I can use FP4+ in 35mm. The only limiting factor is my 35mm is mostly hand held. For that I'd prefer the faster Delta 400.

I use Ilford HP5+ and Kodak Tri-x, both 400 ISO. Like Bob, I also develop at home, it's easy and relatively inexpensive.

TriX (a regular here)
 
Tri X (of course) and HP5 plus for black and white, Fuji Pro NS for medium format color and Superia for 35mm. I develop at home also. I typically use D76 and occasionally Accufine or Microdol for B&W and C-41 for color.

I use tri-x - the guys at the local camera store do the chemistry work and then I scan the frames at home.

I like Ilford FP4 and HP5 as well as Fuji Neopan Acros for 35mm. I develop them myself in Xtol 1+1 or 1+2. For larger formats I use HP5 and develop in Rodinal or HC-110.

B & W : I like shooting tri-x, or tmax both kodak. Also like Fuji acros 100 and ilford hp5+ or hp4. Tri x for the more grainy look. For 120 ive used hp5+ and tmax and Tri x. The 120 results are similar to 35mm.

For developing d 76 or tmax developer. I like liquid tmax since I can mix up whatever I need and it seems easier than d76 powder.

Kodak fixer as well.

Id like to try ilford chemicals and will soon.

Also i have started buying 100 ft rolls of 35mm save a lot on film. And it's dun to roll your own, so to speak.

I like Kodak but I also shoot Fuji. I develop and scan my own film. The question is what are you going to be doing. If you want to do sports or dance, or other fast moving situations, I would do it in digital. If I'm going out to do a shoot in a city, I'll probably do it with Portra or Ektar in 35mm. So, basically, it's what you want to do and what you are comfortable doing it with. Each film has it's own personality and requirements. When Ektachrome becomes available I will do Dallas in Ektachrome. But that film requires perfect exposure, unlike say Portra that I can overexpose 3 or 4 stops and get a washed out effect. I generally over expose at least one stop depending on the situation. What you have to do is go take some pics with film and see what you get and go from there..... hope this helps a little....
