Wow, that's a really broad question. There's a lot of consumer and professional film types out there, both in b&w and color. Your best bet would probably join a photography forum and let people know what you want and what film would work best.

Usually the slower the film, the sharper the neg or positive. Some films have for latitude meaning a stop over or under is barely noticeable. Figure out first what type of shooting you want to do.

As a professional, I mainly use Fujichrome Velvia 50 & Velvia 100 ISO colour positive transparency film (I never use colour negative print film).

If digital files are needed, then the slides are then turned into very high quality digital Tiff files of 50Mb, 100MB, or 200MB using a top-grade desktop 35mm scanner or Drum scanner (for use in colour magazines, calendars, adverts, and books).

Sure, but even that is a little misleading, because you apparently shoot nature photos. Velvia slide is great for that. But as mentioned before, we should understand what he wants to shoot.

Most simply, positive film is slide film. Negative film is print film.
