    It's the way they scan, usually only items/areas of dubious interest get a more intensive scan, this can be when items are lying on top of each other.

    I fly quite frequently and never have problems with my films, but 400ISO are the fastest I use.

    Last year while travelling light, just a backpack, I was forced to put it in the hold and forgot the 5x4 film was in it. When I got to the UK I just tossed the packet aside assuming it would have been fogged. I was testing some old APX100 last month and stuck a sheet of the "fogged" film in the tank as and was amazed to find it was OK. I gave some of the film to an APUG member to practise using a 5x4 and his negs were perfect

    Look at the other thread mentioned further up. There was a detailed discussion about this. It's the way the operator of the x-ray machine can focus in on a particular part of your luggage.

    Cheers, Mark.
