I heard a blurb on local (Detroit) news this a.m. but was half asleep and missed some of the info. I heard something about new luggage x-ray machines at DTW that will ruin exposed film so you should carry all film in a clear plastic bag with your carry on bag and hold it our for security to see so it won't go through their x-ray machines too. Does this sound right??????????? Does anyone know more about this subject????????

I'd hate to have all my Disney photos ruined in either screening machine.

Thanks!:confused:

I sent my camera and film through the x-ray in Pittsburgh and Orlando last month, no problem, my pictures turned out fine. USAir does have a note on their website saying not to put film in checked luggage, that x-ray is much stronger.
