This may sound stupid..but I just got my digital camera ( I LOVE IT !)
But I need to know if it will be hurt by the security scanners. Will be going to the Keyes for 2 weeks in May and don't want any 'bad' suprises.
Thanks in advance

I've checked and carried on my cameras and had no problems with it at all. Its not like the old film cameras of the "old" days.

Ya, you should be fine. I've run mine through airport scanners several times with absolutely no problems. Have fun with your new camera!

If you have any worries about it, just remove the memory card from it and have an agent visually checking the card, since cards can be affected by magnetic fields and things like that.

Even then airport scanners would rarely damage film under ISO 800.

Not true.....in the early days of scanners they were so poorly calibrated that they damaged a large quantity of my 25ASA Kodachrome....ALWAYS better to be safe then sorry....I never had a problem with any airport if I asked for Hand inspection....
