    All of them.

    Really thats far to general a question, and film choice is highly a personal taste thing. One of the great things about shooting film is all the choices, its also hard on someone just coming to film. I suggest you go to Flickr.com and search for Film Brands, Film names, Film groups, whatever pops in your head. While scans onto a computer can and will be different from person to person, computer to computer you will get a general idea of what a particular film will look like.

    Your choices of films will also depend on what you want to shoot. Also, for colour, do you want negatives or slides?

    Kodak Tmax 400 is a good all around B&W negative that many start out with.

    for general use i use kodak or fuji iso400, and if i'm going to use a lense with more zoom or in darker settings i do use fuji 800, my camera bag has kodak iso 200, kodak/fuji iso400, fuji iso800, and kodak tmax iso400, you will probably end up lugging around a couple diffent ranges, but for now i'd probably go out and buy a few if you can, and use them and you'll eventualy find something you like, but for the most part iso400 is probably best to just jump in with film.
