Q and A: Films on a Plane
Q: Hello, I’m going on my first plane ride and I plan to tag my cameras along. I am afraid that the X-Ray will damage my film, any tips?
A: Hi there, friend! Usually your films are not exposed to x-ray machines for long periods of time so it’s safe to bring them along. But if you are planning on a cross country adventure and you are overly worried, you can buy those x-ray pouches to protect your films. If you don’t have the time to buy the film protector, just make sure that the film is properly stored and place them on your hand carry so that you can have access to it anytime.
