Designed to protect unprocessed film from harmful X-rays during airport security and customs checks. Lead-lined bags also protect other sensitive media from the low-dosage X-ray machines used in airports around the world. Without FilmGuard, unprocessed film can become fogged or streaked. Use FilmGuard in carry-on luggage, because checked luggage is exposed to high-dosage X-rays that FilmGuard cannot protect against.

FilmGuard bags were tested for effectiveness by InVision Technologies, Inc., manufacturers of the only Federal Aviation Administration-approved checked-luggage scanning system. Films with up to ISO 800 speeds were tested. The extensive tests showed that the FilmGuard design will protect film and disks 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.)

Triple-layer construction also keeps dust and moisture out: lead-impregnated vinyl sheet sandwiched between an outer shell of ballistic nylon and interior lining of smooth lining. Available in three sizes, in black only.

Size Available in three sizes:
  • Mini FilmGuard - Holds nine 35mm film cassettes or a small camera: 5.25 x 8" (13 x 20cm)
  • Small FilmGuard - Holds fifteen rolls of 35mm film or small camera with a few rolls: 9.5 x 8" (24 x 20cm)
  • Large FilmGuard - Holds thirty-five rolls of 35mm film, or three 50-sheet boxes of 4x5" film, or small camera with a few rolls: 10.5 x 12" (27 x 31cm)

        This bag is very well built and a great size for travel. I also use it to store shot film before I take it to the lab. Film feels very safe and secure in the Domke bag.

          You hear a lot of conflicting opinions on what TSA x-ray does to film. For $, the peace of mind that a lead-lined bag provides is well worth it. I still recommend telling the TSA officer that you have film and politely ask to have it hand screened. But... the bag can't hurt!

            Easily packs in my carry-on bag. TSA does not seem to mind -- have never asked me "what's in there?" Since even supposedly "x-rat safe" film (ISO 400, for example) degrades after 4 or more passes through a machine if it's not protected, this bag is a worthwhile investment.

              Comments about Domke Film Guard Bag, Small - Holds 15 Rolls of 35mm Film:

              Holds a good amount of 120 film rolls, seems to work as described. Doesn't weigh too much, but definitely has a bit of heft to is which is actually reasurring that it has a decent amount of lead in it.

              Not exactly a con, but the velcro is somewhat hard to open up. I take it as more of a positive that it won't accidentally get pulled open at the worst possible time.

                  Bag seems well made, top notch materials and workmanship, as you'd expect from Domke. I'm particularly happy with the hook-and-loop closure on the top flap, which is both generous in size and higher quality then you usually see.

                  I bought this bag for carrying 120 film, without being entirely sure how much it would hold. As it turns out, there's no need to worry - I can fit a dozen rolls of 120 quite comfortably, and coupleprobably squeeze a couple more in if I really had to.

                              Excellent protection pouch for film when traveling. Protects your sensitive emulsions against X-rays used to scan hand luggage at airport security checks. High quality pouch, very well build and rugged. On the heavier side due to the lead lining but still practical. Highly recommended

                                I have the smaller size and needed a larger size. These bags are great for film protection, I have used them for years. When I travel to Spain or France I always bring back many rolls of film. In Europe, airport security doe not hand inspect the film, they just pass it through the x ray machines so you need some sort of protection for the film.

                                      I was able to fit two packs of sheet film, a five pack of 120 film, and 5 rolls of 35mm film into this bag. Very easy for travel I've never had any problems with security.

                                      I shoot 120 medium format film and was concerned about how may rolls I could fit. I was able to package 12 unboxed rolls easily and had room for much more if I needed.

                                      I tried 2 five pack boxes of 120 but was a bit tight on the corners but worked. Unboxed is much easier to get in and out or 1 five pack box and 8 unboxed rolls work great too.

                                        A great product that give me peace of mind when traveling that my film will be safe. Much easier that having to ask security guards to hand-inspect my film.

                                          Traveling photographers that shoot film need dependable film guard bags- despite what TSA says! Worth the cost when balanced against losing your work.

                                          It worked for me, once I put in a contax tvs inside with sone rolls.

                                          The quality is good and the price is fair.
