I always carry my film in 'carry-on' luggage, and politely but Firmly ask customs to hand check the film. Sometimes they start giving the spiel about their x-ray machines being film safe. But if you persist, they will relent. Last week an NZ customs officer was rather puzzled by my LF kit showing up in the x-ray machine. He pulled me aside, not knowing what it was, and clearly didn't know whether to believe me when I said it was a camera. :o
