Should I clear the goods at customs when leaving USA ? At what rate if I declare it ?

1) how much film are you talking about?

You may not have to declare--but if you do, wouldn't it be at your port of entry to the EU rather than leaving the US?

2) X-rays. I took a trip about 12 years ago where I went through about 15 x-ray machines. It even got scanned in New Dehli *leaving* the airport. I noticed no fogging at all. I don't know if they have increased the dose x-ray scanners give since then. I would actually expect it to have gone down (except for homeland security).
