Taking digital camera on holiday

  nodrog2 22:54 23 Sep 04

Can anyone tell me if the x-ray machines at airports cause any problems with the memory cards in digital cameras?

give your digital camera to security before you go through that way it will not be scanned and you avoid the possibility

My camera has gone thru many times with no problem, but if you are worried take the card out and stick in in your pocket.

No problems for me either, including the card.

Just back from hols - went through security at least four times - the pics are fine.

My digital cameras have been through airport X-Ray machines in Europe and the USA many times; Never a problem.

Just returned from Crete, all pictures fine.

I know a pilot who's digital camera and laptop goes through security checking about twice a day or even more often than that.

There aren't any problems with either device.

N.B. Pilots have to go through similar security checks as the paying passengers.

Glad that question was posted and answered, I would not have thought but general feeling seems to be that its no problem.

These memory cards are pretty robust, I saw a magazine article where they tried all sorts of ways to kill them including washing machines, heavy objects etc. They even nailed one to a tree and were still able to retrieve the pictures.

I haven't tried the ultimate test yet though as my 2 year old daughter hasn't managed to get her hands on my memory stick.
