Subject: Lead bags?

I have traveled all over the world with my Pentax camera and many rolls of film. I never use a lead bag. I do put the

film (400 speed) in my carryon and let it go through the x-ray machine, time after time at each airport. I take 30 plus rolls with me. Since I don't always use them up, they go on the next trip and through multiple x-rays again. I have never had a problem. All my pictures come out well. This has been true even in third-world countries.

I, of course, don't guarantee this, but I wanted to pass on my personal experience.

Happy picture taking!
