Domke 711-12B overview

  • 1Description

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.

    Domke 711-12B reviews

    Film Guard Bag, Small - Holds 15 Rolls of 35mm Film is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits a lot of 120 film too! 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for 120, too 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job well . . . I've been shooting digital for a long time and just recently branched out to film. One concern with travel photography is how the film will react to x-ray scanners at airport security. Have used this for a couple of trips so far and it does the job well without a lot of extra weight. I've carried mostly ISO 100 and 400 film, but I have also carried up to 1600 and not had an issue with film fogging from the x-rays. It's a simple design as it should be.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is what it says it is 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of Mind 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!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made, sturdy, compact and flexible great little case for transporting film, but really only holds 10 rolls, maybe a couple more, not expandable or strechable. Good construction and nice velcro closure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Film Guard I love this product, feels solid and old-school good and my 120film I'm sure feels the same... ;) If you use film and travel a lot I would recommend this!
