Re: filmscanners: Color Negative Film Poll



I just got done with a 2 week trip through Europe. I did the bit of mixing
various film speeds including Provia 1600 marked as Push 3200.  I had no
hassles at SeaTac, OHare, Charles-DeGaulle intra-europe, Munich
intra-europe, Turin intra-Europe.  But at CDG headed for the USA I almost
lost all of my film.  They had a final scanner check literally just before
boarding and it took fairly hefty arguing and almost not getting on the
plane to get them to not scan those bits of film that were marked as PUSH.

Their comment:  Get a Film Bag so that everything can go trough the
scanner...

DO NOT, repeat DO NOT, put your film in checked luggage.  With the new
scanners being deployed even domestically, 400sp film has been getting
fogged.

BTW, while it is true that painters don't go on and on about their brushes,
they do spend equiv amounts of time discussing their palettes and their
choice of mediums (maragete etc.)
