Flying with Film

Postby fresnel10 » Thu 01 November 2012 / 03:08 am

Hi everyone. I'm about to fly with instant film for the first time. I will be taking the Fuji FP-100C. Now, film always goes with me as a carry on, and I know that as long as film is under ISO 800 it's ON in the xray machine, but is there any special exception for instant film? I've tried finding the answer online to no avail, and I really don't want to lose 5 packs. If I could avoid hand checking (I shudder to think how far they might want to go in opening and inspecting), that would be ideal.

Any help? Thanks! :)

hi,

we've talked about it a lot here and it looks like there is no real problem with ISO 100 films. no difference between usual film and instant film with x-rays.

i travelled a lot with films, and never had any problems (either hand luggage or in the cargo compartment) - even with 3000b.

so don't worry, it should be ok!

same here, I generally keep my film in my carry on, and I never noticed any difference when shooting afterwards.

That's great to hear, thanks everyone! My main worry was that there was something chemically different that might cause a problem, but I'm glad to hear that there isn't.
