Domke Film Guard Bag (X-Ray) - Small

The small version of the Domke Film Guard Bag has a capacity of 9 35mm films or 5 120 roll films.

The Domke Film Guard Bags protect your film your undeveloped film from the streaking and fogging caused by exposure to harmful x-rays during airport security and customs checks. Unlike the (discontinued) Hansa X-Ray bags these bags are made to last a lifetime and are reusable.

The Film Guard Bags can protect all types of unprocessed analog film including sheet films, cassette films (35mm) and roll films (120/127/220). It protects film against low-dosage x-ray machines that are used to check carry-on luggage at airports around the world. It is not intended for use in checked luggage, which is exposed to much higher doses of x-rays. So it's always a good idea to first store film in a Film Guard Bag and then pack them in your carry-on luggage, rather than checked luggage. Please be aware that in some countries airports have installed new CT scanners to screen hand luggage. These scanners are more powerful than the conventional x-ray scanners used until today and will also damage you film. In such case we strongly advise to ask for a manual check of your luggage. For a more detailed explanation we refer to the document Kodak has published on this mater: "Storage and Care of Kodak Photographic Materials".

The Film Guard Bags are designed in such way that it offers maximum protection against low-dosage X-Ray canners. It has a rugged, three-layer construction, starting with an outer shell of water-resistant ballistic nylon. In the middle, a lead-impregnated vinyl sheet provides x-ray protection. The interior is lined with smooth, 420 Denier nylon packcloth. With their full-length hook and loop closures, Film Guard Bags also protect your film from dust and weather. When not in use, Film Guard Bags can be stored flat or used as a protective wrap around equipment. Film Guard Bags were tested for effectiveness by InVision Technologies, Inc., manufacturers of the only Federal Aviation Administration-approved checked-luggage scanning system in the USA. Films with a nominal film speed up to ISO 800 were tested. The extensive tests showed that the FilmGuard design will protect film from the low-dosage X-Ray units used to check carry-on luggage. The tests also showed that the amount of lead needed to protect film from high-dosage X-Ray units would make the bags too heavy to be practical.
