    And airport employees are required to be familiar with sensitized materials.

    I last went through CDG in 2011, and they hand inspected the couple rolls of D3200 I had, and I sent the rest through the carryon scanner without a hitch.

    What about colour films? Arent they supposed to be more affected by these scans?
    My travelling with film has been very limited via air - mostly been road/train (thankful for that!)

    I just went through CDG with 800 speed 120 film, and all the film went through the carry-on X-ray. No problems. My shoes, however, must have some piece of metal in the soles because they made me take them off and not only ran the shoes through the X-ray, they wanded the bottoms of my feet to be sure.

    No. ON my sister's recent Australia-Canada-Alaska trip, with 2 rolls of Provia 100F (carry-on), it passed through a total of 16 X-ray points over the 4-week trip. There is no ill-effect on either roll, but her three SD cards were corrupted, necessitating a panic call to a photo lab in Vancouver that had a copy-store of images she had printed there.

    Wow. Film came through clean and the cards got corrupted?

    That's correct. A few photos were able to be copied off all three SD cards, but the rest were unreadable. There is nothing to report of the Provia films.
    Perhaps the SD cards were subjected to some other interference, but they were all stored in the same place in the camera pack I had instructed the folks when they left home and were in that place when I began the gear debriefing and downloading. It's very fortunate that copies were available from the lab to be sent to us by post from BC. The SD cards were thrown out and the Provia was processed long ago — nothing printed yet (that's because my images take priority! ).

    oi, this keeps going and going, i must have posted a couple of times already...

    anyway, here's a news flash from CDG--for years they have been herding incoming connections via landside tunnels requiring an extra security scan to get on your next flight; last saturday they dumped me airside, so i could skip that extra scan. crossing my fingers it stays this way

    I no longer worry about X Rays and film. I had my color and monochrome film scanned 3 times on a recent trip and it has no effect on the film whatsoever.
