Well, I jave heard that nowadays, if your film is over ISO 800, it might get damaged, but not under that. I have crossed my film through x-rays in airports and nothing has happened. But they've been rolls that I have just for fun shooting. The only time I did work abroad on a documentary with 16mm, I asked the airport agents to not pull it through x-rays and they where glad to check it by hand...of course, without opening the cans, jeje.

Any links to any examples, photography or motion film? I've never seen the effects of x-ray.
