I'm planning on making a film and need to buy a fair amount of 16mm fresh stock.

And I'm sure the answer is yes - but just looking for a reassurance. 

 

Is it safe to have fresh stock shipped across country from Kodak (in this case NY city ) via Fedex or UPS Ground without the film suffering from the x-raying or scanning? Kodak recommended ground by either, and that they would label it "do not x-ray". But I wanted to check with you DP's that actually have ordered film and had it developed recently. 

I was just wondering if it's worth the effort to drive up to Kodak NY. I don't mind doing that if it gaurantees a pristine unexposed negative.

Anybody have any experiences?  No problems?  Is this okay?

 

Thanks everyone

I've never had a problem with film shipped from Kodak to me, by UPS, DHL, or FedEx.

We are authorized distributor of fuji motion picture in Pakistan. In 2013 fuji have closed production of motion picture stock. So we had purchased all inventory( negative, intermediate, black and white) from fuji japan. We have kept all stock in proper warehouse so all stocks are in good working position. So if any one need stock please email me at media_films@yahoo.com
