>Trips to and from Costa Rica damaged some of my film in the xray machines. This trip I am going to pack film in checked luggage to see if it is any better.>
'SOME' The x/ray radiation goes through ALL the contents, So how do you explain 'SOME'.
'Checked luggage' Lets see now, If I read the new security laws correctly All checked luggage will be checked. Now, you can still put your film in a lead lined container to protect it. But I would not want to put up with the hassle.
Maybe if you told us what 'SOME' of the photos looked like, maybe a better answer could be given other than the 'x-rays' didn't do it. Sorry, I don't buy it. From what I have found it's me or the photo lab that screwed it up... but usually me.
