    So I am travelling to the west coast in a couple days & I am considering taking along my 4X5 field camera. I am planning on shipping a box of TMax2 400 & film holders ahead FedEx overnight to arrive at my sisters house.

    Before I do this, I just wanted to check with the collective mind of APUGgers to see if this is still the best way to transport large format film across the country. Or is there a better way?

    Any thoughts or opinions?

    I should mention I am flying, not driving.

    Ship away. I have used FedEx as an overnight shipper when I needed film in a hurry for my studio. I have never experienced any issues.

    my Freestyle orders come by FedEx

    And I doubt that they would do so if there were problems.

    Of course, there is always the lead bag for extra insurance.
