Hi all:

On this matter regarding my recent trip to the US., i had roughly 20 rolls
of film placed in one of those x-ray bags bought at local camera store. I
had it went thru xray about 10 times...a few in the Philippines, alot in
the US, a few in Singapore... Well, all I can say is, is that they work. I
couldn't find anything on my film. Knock on wood. Fastest film I placed
there was an ISO800 film.
