Re: Fogged Film From Airport X-rays

Well as I said the Kodachrome thing is pure
speculation on my part, it just seems to stand up to
so much normally, and of course it's a very unusual
process compared to other film stocks.

The 64 asa will make a difference as the slower a film
is the harder it is to fog. I'm not sure about it
being reversal will help or not. *shrug* It could even
make it worse, but the slower it is the less sensitive
it should be to light and hence hopefully x-rays too!
:)

I'd be interested to know how black and white stocks
stand up to x-rays? Will it make any difference? I
know that they stand up well to aging generally so
maybe that would help in this situation?

love

Freya
