Flying with Steel dev tanks
I travel light and nimble. Im flying to Istanbul through JFK in Dec. and i do not check bags in..
So after all this information,
I will be bringing 2 x100' rolls of trix and a 100' roll of portra with me. These come in metal cans. and at 400 iso not a huge deal to get xrayed.
I will bring a 1000ml Steel developing tank along aswell.
I fly with film alot, but never have with developing tanks and film changing tents in a carry on.
I was wondering if anyone flew with any of these equipment in a carry on bag? Any experiences?
They might have to pat down your cans at JFK.
are you going to have the developing stuff in your carry on with your film ?
just ask for hand-inspection and you will be fine ...
I will have everything with me in a carry on, except the chemicals.
Could I even fly with powder X-TOL ?
I would love to bring a whole bunch with me and save money. I doubt they would let me have the chemicals in a carry on bag.
I am not too concerned about the film, i might ask for a hand inspection.. but not a big deal. They will only go through one xray at JFK until they are exposed and developed on location.
