Default Film

Where is the best place to carry film on the flight? I have heard that the xray machines will damage the film. Do you carry it in your purse/personal tote and remove it and hand it to the person at the metal detector? Does the same go for film that is taken but not developed yet? Thanks.

any film over 600 speed needs to be hand-scanned at the airport.- Do not pack it - put it in a camera bag or some type of carry-on. It may take a few minutes but worth having your film and pictures being ruined. Used and unused film.

When you say films over 600 speed, do you mean like 1000 (that direction???) or do you mean 200 etc.? I forget which way film works.

Thanks,
Tammy

Cary your film in a CLEAR plastic bag and hand it to the officer at the scanner and ask it to be hand-checked. they are used to it, and it will move things along.
