    I have not done much flying since 9/11 and I am not sure how the new
    regulations affect traveling with cameras. Do the new scanners affect film
    and digital memory cards and how careful should I be with unexposed film?
    Will the airlines allow an 18x13x7 aluminum camera case as a second carry on
    bag? I was told that a briefcase qualified as a second bag, but the camera
    case is twice as deep.

    I generally run the camera through the machine without film and have my
    film hand checked.

    Regarding the film, buy a roll of Fuji 1600 and Kodak TMax 3200 B&W
    film. They qualify for a hand check of your camera stuff.

    If you have medium or large format film...get it hand checked. I was at
    Denver International Airport today and they have a small sign that speaks to
    800ISO, but then there is a different sign that has a whole list of issues
    regarding film.....nothing stating 3200ISO, it does state if you want to be
    careful have your whole bag hand checked, and with the new security in
    effect this week they may anyway. They rescanned my carry on bag because I
    had an electric toothbrush in it. Had to take it out to be scanned again.
    Welcome to travel in America.
