I am Debbie's husband Kurt. I am a professional photographer and work for a
newspaper with a large and traveling staff. Debbie asked my opinion about
traveling, film and x-ray machines, and Sue pretty much covered everything that
I would tell you. The trick about mixing some fast film in will usually get you
a hand-check without too much trouble. The one exception I have encountered was
the UK. They absolutely would not allow anything through the security
checkpoint that had not been through the machines. I asked for a supervisor and
then their supervisor, and eventually had to relent, or swim back to the US.
Otherwise, Sue is right on the mark.
