x-ray?

Anyone know if it is a problem putting footage that has been recorded to tape through an x-ray machine at the airport?

Regrads, Greg.

nothing that I have heard.. HOWEVER... i hear the way you get dead pixels is by running your JVC through the X-Ray machine.

i have run mine (the camera) through an xray a couple times and all is well. I would prefer to risk it on an xray, then check it below and watch the baggage "throwers" handle the pelican case.

Re: xray

I've carried my HD-110 through x-ray machines in the contiguous U.S., Franc, Egypt, Greece, Mexico, Alaska, and Costa Rica since May and have had no problems.

I get a dead pixel every time I go through the airport x-ray machine.

Yep, It kind of blows. I try and travel with an HD monitor to check it but when in doubt I run the dead pixel mask function in the camera. Thank god that little fix got posted!

Wow, funny this thread came up, I just flew back from Dallas on Sunday after shooting a music video, and low and behold, a dead pixel!!! Ask them if they will "swab it" instead of scan it, that goes for tapes too, never hurts to ask.

I hate the thought of massive amounts of electro-magnetic energy going through my stuff!!

its the actual flight and exposure of cosmic rays that knock pixels down, NOT the X ray machine.

Boy... that does make some sense, very fascinating. I wonder of a lead lined case would do any good... Huge pain to carry around but would make for an interesting test..
