Can the camera and cards be x-rayed? What do folks do to keep the equipment safe?
It's not a problem. Done it many times.
You might have to actively discourage a TSA person from poking a finger or wand into the mirror box though! < just kidding>
Radiation from X-rays can fog film. It has no effect on digital.
As the others have said, it's not a problem. I always carry my camera/lenses on the plane with me, rather than pack it in the luggage. Before my last trip to Europe, a salesman at a camera store advised separating the lens from the camera. She said the constant vibration/bumps from the plane could put stress on the mount if the lens was attached to the camera. Any thoughts about that?
Thanks for the Help
I am thinking if the flight is that rough I want off and to hell with the gear!!!!
As mentioned, check through the x-ray should be no problem. Packing in a good camera bag should keep any gear in good shape. I usually go with The Lowepro mini-trekker when I take my small travel pack. It does a good job of making sure nothing gets jostled.
