Maxim Lequeux Posted November 3, 2022 Share Posted November 3, 2022 Next year I will be shooting in New Zealand on 16mm, and am currently wondering how I can best get my material back to Europe (as I can't get it developed in NZ, no labs). I can get the raw film sent directly from Kodak to NZ, so no problem there, but I need to sort out how to get it back - without it getting damaged by x-rays or similar problems. I flew once before (EU-NZ) with film in both directions and you can see it on the material, it's ok, just some weird red pulsing, but I would be keen to avoid any damage. The previous shoot was with 50D, and now I'm planning on shooting with 250D, which probably makes a difference x-ray wise? My current 2 options as I see it are - shipping it directly to the lab from NZ (to Germany) with some super safe option (DHL or FedEx?), but then I'm not sure if customs would be a problem? - taking it on the plane with me and hoping that I am lucky enough that they will inspect it by hand. Does anyone have any experience / tips? (student film btw) Many thanks, Max Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
