What do you do with your disposable camera

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am taking several disposable cameras. I was told to make sure they didn't get x-rayed. Where do I put them? I know that sounds silly. I do fly all the time but I am mostly wondering about the ship. Don't they x-ray your luggage?

lindyf,

I don't know about disposable cameras but I always take my camera and film with me on my carry on. I've been told that the strength of the x-rays at the airport and on the cruise ship are too weak to harm the film. I've put both my camera and the film through and there has never been a problem with the film.

I also understand that you can request that film equipment be examined by hand by the TSA agent so that it doesn't have to go through the x-ray. They usually say to put it on the conveyor anyway.

So long as the film is below 1000 ASA, it shouldn't be a problem to use the conveyor belts. Most film is 100, 200, or 400, so you should be OK. As others said, just don't put it into checked luggage.
