The plane was clearly oblique to the roll of film: the approx 6mm wobble against the ~20mm diameter of a roll of 120 indicates that the X-ray plane was tilted about 15 degrees from cutting directly across the axis of the roll (in which case there would have been a straight line).



    These marks are dark on the negative (additional exposure) and therefore white on a print (which doesn't exist at this point). I'm not sure you're missing anything except that the roll of film in the picture is not a print?

    MikeBamboo: was there a roll loaded in your camera that went through the scanner? That will be very interesting to see because you should get different patterns for the two parts of the roll on each spool, plus a third pattern for the straight film across the gate.
    All my camera equipment went through the carry on scanner, unfortunately or fortunately I didnt have anything loaded in the camera.

    All my unused film was in my checked bag. All my used film went through the carry on scanner and developed fine.

    Well there y'go, Mike... you inadvertantly and independently validated all of thte research on this topic! In the future... no film in checked bags and you'll be OK (except in the rarest of occasions).

    Why not make a virtue from that all.

    And call it Airportography...

    My ASA 400 Arista EDU film went through an TSA's xray machine it it was fine. I lost my Leatherman though. They saw it on the Xray machine and took it. Oh well....

    A friend of mine lost the little 1.5 inch screwdriver from her eyeglass repair kit too!

    Another friend (now former friend) was escorted by TSA to the street for having some darts in his carry-on bag. I suspect he said something like, "I'll not give up my darts unless you prythem out of my cold, dead hands".

    It looks like X-ray damage to me.

    x-ray damage

    I'm guessing it WAS x-ray damage - though I have never seen the like. Good rule - NEVER put film in checked baggage! In the last 10 years I have traveled with ISO 100 film to China 3 times, Europe 4 times and other domestic travels. I always let my film be scanned by carry-on TSA or Chinese or Germans and have not suffered a trace of scan damage. In Italy 10 years ago I made two exposures on 4x5 Tmax 100 film pack and put one in checked baggage and the other in for-scan carry on. The film in the checked bag DID show a Zone I fog streak but it could have been printed through. Develope the rest of your film - you have nothing to lose and maybe something to gain!
