I was there in May, and they insisted very strongly that I had to put it through the scanner - even though I had several rolls of Tmax3200! I caught a boatload of attitude. I guess it depends on the luck of the draw. For what it is worth, none of my negatives suffered any harm when I developed them back at home. I always mark any film that has been through a scanner once, and never take it on another trip, though. In my experience the damage is cumulative, and more than one trip through a scanner is inviting some fog.
