When I've asked for hand inspection they have countered: if it is ISO
1600 or higher, ok. Otherwise, it won't get hurt.

I've trusted them (and they did do hand inspection when I had Fuji Xtra 

So I think the reason they decline hand inspections is that they know
the film won't get hurt. When in doubt, they'll do it.

But Tina's method can't hurt ... other than a little additonal weight.
I rarely want that additional weight. My shoulders have taken a
beating after all of these years of carrying equipment around.
