    Forget about x-rays, you may need to find the way to beat the heat of Rome. ;-)

    Rolleicord Va: Humble.
    Holga 120GFN: Amazingly simple yet it produces outstanding negatives to print.

If you're concerned about Delta 3200, remember that it's actually an ISO 1000 film.

    When I've been worried about high speed film and airports, one trick that I've employed is to put a roll or two in my pocket for when I go through the metal detectors so that it avoids the x-ray scan. I don't really do that anymore though as I haven't seen any ill effects from x-rays to warrant the effort.
    I need to remove my shoes and have them xrayed as they are safety shoes for haz handling with steel toecaps.
    Ditto wrist watch a small self wind Omega tic tock
    Ditto belt for metal clasp

    To get through metal detectors and they still trip occasionally maybe on my metal specs...

    the staff don't mind frisking people, the metal detector only lets through a % of clean individuals, if you have a steel implant...

    I've hiked through some of the worst heat in Bangkok. Rome should be OK.

    I imagine Bangkok is overrun with those noisy scooters too. I can still hear them buzzing in my head 25 years after visiting Rome.

    I suppose this is really a pretty personal question. I would personally be taking the GF670 rather than the wide option, but I'm admittedly not much of a wide angle guy. Isn't the GF670 just slightly more compact as well, as the lens folds completely into the body?

    It's a lot more compact. I just don't know how much I'll miss wide angle in Rome. I am leaning towards bringing the folder.

    I would bring my Hasselblad 903 SWC for a very wide angle. I would use the 50mm lens for wide angle otherwise.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
