The medium version of the Domke Film Guard Bag has a capacity of 15 35mm films or 12 120 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.
