    For my last trip I used a Domke bag. I could see the operators screen and the X-Ray DOES see through the bag, although the image was very dark and they could JUST see through. That was ok for them because they saw that they are just rolls of film and the fact that it was as dark as it was suggests to me that it blocks at least a big amount of radiation.

    and: forget hand inspection in Europe. I always ask, it was NEVER granted.

    Both last summer and this summer I tested base density of iso 400 film from the same 100ft batch that either sat in a camera at home or went on a continental USA aircraft trip with two trips through the x-ray scanner. There was no difference in base density that I could detect with my densitometer.

    maybe it also depends on the machine in use and for how long they examine your luggage.
