Domke FilmGuard Overview

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.

    question

    Is the inside just one opening, or are there small individualized compartments stitched inside? I am thinking of this for therapeutic gems, which should not be x-rayed. Thanks

    The pouch just has a single opening, there are not small compartments as you were inquiring about unfortunately.

    question

    Has anyone tried doubling up the bags; putting one inside the other? Would this potentially be enough to protect from checked baggage x-ray?
    Asked by: Martin
    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.)FilmGuard 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 FilmGuard bags and then pack them in your carry-on luggage, rather than checked luggage.Without testing for effectiveness of the FilmGuard bags on China's rail systems, we are unable to answer your question whether the FilmGuard bag would or would not be able to protect your film from the x-ray scanning machines used in China.

    question

    i was wondering how many 120 film would this bag hold ??
    Asked by: Anonymous
    When I travelled with this I was able to comfortable fit about 12 rolls of 120 film. Other reviewers have reported the same. 120 film rolls are taller, but smaller diameter than 35mm. I put mine in ziplocs inside the Domke bag to keep them in order. Works great for air travel knowing your film is protected and won't get fogged.

    question

    Will this protect film from the x-rays used on Chinese subways and trains? Has anyone tried this? In Shanghai, they x-ray every bag going into the subway and train stations. I don't have any info about how strong they are.
    Asked by: Martin
    Well, now that I've traveled to China and sent this bag through their subway x-ray systems many times, I can say that:1. The x-ray machines have stickers on them that say (in English!) Film Safe 2. My low-speed (ISO50 to ISO400) films seem to have survived unscathed inside one of these bags after multiple passes through the machines.
