    When you arrive at the airport do you keep your exposed films in their plastic canisters or have you gotten rid of them to make hand inspection easier?

    I recently had an almost surreal experience at New York's La Guardia of all places. While waiting to plunge my belongings into the abyss of the X-ray machine, I casually asked the resident security agent if the machine was safe for film; I was essentially just making conversation, as I wasn't carrying anything over 400 and I wasn't going to bother with hand checking. He asked if I had film, and when I replied in the affirmative, he volunteered to hand check it in spite of the rather substantial line of people waiting to go through security. I was shocked but pleased to accept his offer.

    Back before I started letting all my film get X-rayed, I used to store my exposed film in a very large clear plastic bag. The security guy could see immediately what was in it.

    I now just let all my film get X-rayed. All the time.
