I presume you're talking about scenic shots on a tripod? The HD200 should be good enough since you're using a tripod.

Sorry, can't provide more info...but I guess ISO100 film may be good too...finer grain...

And although you have said you are not planning to shoot slides, I would really suggest trying out a roll. You've love the colours.

essentially a lot to choose... :think:

fuji superia xtra 100/200/400, reala 100,

kodak tcn 400 (b/w c41 process)

for more stunt: fuji provia 100, provia 400. (caution: slide film :) )

kodak gold 100, 200 also not bad

for exposure, just trust your camera meter though you might want to bracket your shots. Are you using a tripod? If so, any of the 100, 200 films will do fine, depending on whether you prefer Kodak's or Fuji's palette. If handholding, which you really shouldn't, use a fast lens, the highest possible speed film you can find, and pray.
