Re: filmscanners: X-ray scanners/etc



Hi Pat,

You are correct, I was mistaken, please see below:

"Film and the U.S. Mail (10/01)
The following is a paraphrased condensed version of a recent announcement
from PPA: The United States Postal Service has announced that it is
installing irradiation equipment to sterilize mail. While the potential for
film damage and fogging will likely depend on the setting and types of
equipment used, Professional Photographers of America is urging caution on
part of all members who use the United States Postal Service to ship film.

All of us at Miller's Professional Imaging understand the reasoning of the
U.S. Postal service for this security measure. We urge you to use Airborne
Express or UPS to transport your exposed or unexposed film. "

Thanks for pointing this out,

John in OKC

| I'm going to guess the original warning was to not send exposed or
