I do not do analogue pictures any more, but I hear that Kodak TMax100
developed in FX39 is recommended as a reasonably fast (ISO 100)
high-resolution (80 lp/mm) combination. I used ISO 40 film (Adox or Agfa)
developed in Rodinal when I still was doing that kind of thing, but much
has changed with film manufacture in the meantime. Rodinal is still
supposed to be up to par for developing, though.
Faster film is not really useful for technical pictures in my opinion, it
is fine for artistic, sports or news photography.
There are obvious exceptions: I used high-speed film for making
oscilloscope shots, where grain really does not matter.
