I have been trying to shoot some pics on my trip to SLC, but the national guard people stole my film. I then tried to shoot some in canada, but decided not to. Anyone else having any luck? Or the same experience?

I think you can sue them because the only thing they are allowed to do is ask you to leave. What was the reason for taking the film? What did they make out from confiscating it?????? It IS a violation of your rights. First of all they should have had a warning for film confiscation. They have no right in confiscating items that cannot be used for terroristic actions.

Who knows what is legal now under the new laws...
(Before you grill me, this doesn't only apply to the US, most European countries have new anti-terror laws too, which I'm afraid are necessary, but come at a price for personal freedom of the innocent majority).
Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been...

I wasn't shooting for a while, but I did start up again late last month with some in-terminal photos while on a layover in SFO. Then this last weekend I was back with a vengeance, shooting at LAX, LGB, LAS, SAN, and all sorts of little airports, and nowhere did anyone bother me, including police and airport ops.

I could, but by that time, they would have ruined it. They took it back to the N.G. station, and unraveled it. Then they paid me the price of a roll of film, and told me to not to take another picture while in the state of Utah. Maybe things are just really strict because they are thinking ahead about security for the olympics. But still.
