FedEx... iffy. You don't SEE them xray thepackage... but your film will

I've had no problems getting inspections in China except on domestic flights -- and even then it may have been a matter of one hurried inspector who had no patience for my rotten Mandarin. I usually carry 20-100 rolls of 35mm on int'l trips. Carry them all in a clear plastic ziploc that can be easily separated from your camera kit. Take the boxes off -- just the film cassettes and plastic cans.
Thanks for the info, Kevin. The only problem with the B&W Infrared is you can't take the film out of the plastic cans. The film is so light sensitive that you also have load/unload into your camera in complete darkness. I always carry a portable dark bag with me. I might just ask the Chinese Embassy if I can maybe get special permission to not have my "special film" xrayed. I 've got time to work these things out. I just thought some APUGGERS might have some advice.
