p.s. When I last used lead bags and told the screener that I had film in a lead bag I got one of two responses: "hand it to me and I'll handceck it for you", or "remove the film from the bag and put both separately on the conveyor". Not enjoying this experience an dhaving never had a problem with xray damage no matter where I've flown... I gave up on the lead bag many years ago. I'd much rather glide through the security stations without ever having to interact with the security personnel.
