Computer,Digital Camera, Flash Drive, Through Airport Security Safely
Don't wear or carry your jump drives through the metal detector, it could damage the equipment.
Computer, Camera, Flash Drive, and Digital Remote Hard Drives should go in
carry on luggage through X-ray check.
Film
Some airports will hand inspect film others will not. The TSA operates on the premise that x-ray will not hurt low-speed film. ( below ISO 800)  In the US you can request a hand inspection.

Put film in clear plastic bags for a quick hand inspection of  use the lead-lined shield which will trigger a hand inspection.  
TSA claims that  films below ISO 800 will survive  up to 5  X-rays at the level used in airports and this is the standard they have adopted.

Even on a domestic round trip flight you could go through more than five inspections
Your best bet is to get to the security check early before the rush puts the inspectors on edge. Try for a hand inspection. Have the film in a clear plastic bag or bags and explain calmly that you have professional film, that will go through several checkpoints, and that you can not risk damage. You can do no more than that unless you can buy your film in the country you visit and have it processed there.

Film should not go in checked luggage were the x-ray used is much more powerful.

Connections: Most countries use the TSA Guidelines or similar security procedures.  Save Time by making Realistic connections
When booking a flight, be realistic about your ability to get from one gate to another and go through security in time to make a connection.  Often, even on a domestic flight you might be required to pass through security more than once. Have a little cushion of time between connections, two hours on domestic and three on international will reduce anxiety during unpleasant surprises.


Security Metal Detector :
Don't wear or carry your flash drives or jump drives  through the metal detector.  They could be damaged.
Wear no metal through security. Glasses, belts, shoes, coins, and keys, will set off the alarm and subject you to delay and possible search.  Put all digital media and everything of metal in your carry-on and pass it through the x-ray.  A search could separate you from your carry-on
One of the quickest ways to save time and your electronic equipment is to check the Transportation Security Administration, TSA, website
Save anxiety at the air travel terminal by having the latest information on carry-on restrictions, transporting film, digital equipment, medicines, liquids, face creams, perfumes and other normally carry-on items.
The Transportation Safety Authority  TSA  publishes a helpful web page that details the latest security procedures.  These tips can save you time and money through security check points.
