Default Re: Film

Paula,
Bring all the film you want. Nothing like being short of film for those memories.

Just a word of caution. Do not pack the film in your checked luggage. The airlines have a very strong x-ray and can ruin film.
What I do and has worked, is to take all the film out of the plastic cylinders and place them in a zip lock bag. When you go through the carry-on security take the zip lock bag out and pass it around and not through the x-ray.

After you take your pics mark the film cylinder with a marker (an x will do) to show you that these are exposed film. Once again put them in a zip lock bag and pass them around the x-ray security, including any unexposed film in a different zip lock bag for organization.
