Thread: Will Airport X-ray machine harm our camera?

  1. #1

    Default Will Airport X-ray machine harm our camera?

    I read from the Nikon book ...

    1. Do not place your camera near TV
    2. Do not place your camera near radio

    This will spoilt the electronic sensor inside the camera...


    So my question is ... if i need to go other country and of course ... my baby (Camera) will and must come along ... will the airport X-ray kill my camera ?

    maybe it will not die straight away ...
    but will it harm the sensor?


    Pls help me, i am worried!

    No. Unless the x-ray scanner happen to give off as much ionising radiation as when a thermonuclear explosion occur then you will have to worried about lattice displacement, ionization effects, neutron effects, single-event effects, systems-generated EMP effects, total ionizing dose effects, transient dose effects etc. etc. affecting unhardened electronics on the molecular level.

    Cheers.
