    Travelers: New X-ray machines WILL ruin your film

    I picked this up from John Sexton's newsletter and post the link below. The new 3-D scanners will reportedly do in your unprocessed film instantly.

    Yes, both fresh and exposed but not processed film will be ruined

    My point was, OP changed the Headline from "Beware: New 3D Airport Scanners Will Wipe Unprocessed Camera Film"

    We should quote source exactly as not doing that is causing a lot of political damage in this PC era.

    I expect this type machine to be used in many more places, other than airports.

    Buses, trains, government buildings and shopping Malls for starters...

    Thanks for testing

    Just went through Boston and Seattle and did not see any of these machines at the terminals I used.

    Maybe hospitals can get these someday as hand-me-downs and not spend small fortunes to look at people's innards in 3d.
