The U.S. Transport Security Amdinstration has issued new rules for transporting photographic equipment. It seems that with the new inspection equipment, undeveloped film MUST be carried on and not checked in. Also it details the limitations on types and amount of equipment permitted to be carried-on.

According to the FAA, if a passenger requests a hand check of any film, high speed or not, the security people must comply. In fact, in most airports there are signs alerting you to this rule. If someone asks you if you have high speed film, sees you don’t, and says it’s safe to put it through the machine, just repeat your request. If you google film and FAA regulations, you should be able to find the exact details.
