Re: filmscanners: X-ray scanners/etc

Hi Hersch,

Well this whole conversation has been interesting, it does sound like you
are damned if you do and dammed if you don't. Maybe when things become
standardized, there will be an answer to how to transport our film. I still
don't understand how processed film could be damaged. I just called my
professional lab and they said the notice to not send processed or
unprocessed film through the US mail came from the post office itself.
