Domke 711-15B 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 711-15B reviews

    Film Guard Bag, Large is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 47.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from loved it. This was a great product for me as I was transporting film around Africa and used it as both an airport protective bag as well as for keeping the 120 film in a dark environment when there wasn't much dark to be had. It held at least 60 rolls of film and was easy to handle. It also seemed to be enough to convince most of the TSA people that it was film and that they didn't need to open it and rummage around - with a nicely worded request that is. The heavy lead liner also seemed to stop most of the X-rays - but that's just a guess. Some people said it scared wildlife, but for my situation, it didn't create any problem and in fact, the velcro was good for getting to stuff quickly.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Defeats the Purpose Nothing wrong with the bag, but it defeats it purpose: I used it three times at airports. In each case, the screeners saw the black shadow on their X-ray screen and insisted that I remove the rolls of film from the bag and have them x-rayed. All this bag does it slow down the screening process because you get secondary screening. Better to simply ask for a hand check, which is usually only done in the US; in most other countries, a hand check is not an option. This bag won't protect your film from being X-rayed, neither within the US nor abroad.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient when on the go Domke has brought convenience to the serious photographer.This film bag easily can be stowed away with ones luggage or placed within ones camera backpack for ease of transport.It allowed me to store and transport 30+ rolls of film during an outting with little discomfort and relative ease of access.The only issue I faced was the amount of noise created when the Domke bag was opened.Working with wildlife requires absolute silence at times and the bag was just a bit too noisy when opening.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good bag Very good bag. Great design. Big enough for seven 5pk og 120film, or for about 78 rolls of film (120mm) when I take them out of the package. A must whwn going abroad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKS I travel frequently and x rays was my main concern. Since I have these bags I have no worries. Does its job.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product The bag is pretty big, I was able to fit about 50 rolls of 120 film in it. The only downside is that it is pretty heavy, but I guess that makes sense because it's lined. I will be using for travel to go through airport security.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from they work! these things are like s-ray fortress'! nothing gets through. Never worry again when traveling in foreign countries and quit wasting your time trying to explain to teenage security guards what film is.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Bag This fit 25 rolls of 120 easily. I gave it enough space to fold over and squish in my carry on case.
