    I'm just wondering as to whatever happened to the lens/equipment of ppl who were photographing 9/11 OR a similar scenario like Iraq war!
    Do they have to throw it in the bin after taking the roll/card out? Or the equipment has some sort of a high-end protective gear?

    Okay, 9/11 isn't exactly something one plans for BUT having spent time with photographers in the dunes of southern California you jump back inside your truck and close the windows and doors to change lenses and film or use a portable dark bag but that only minimizes contamination. I've seen a few N90's and F4's inside these while out at the dunes and the Cinders in northern AZ while shooting the jeeps, dune buggies, and dirtbikes.

    I'm confused - why would you need to throw them away - etc?

    I was wondering if the heavy dust/sand would spoil the equipment. Will it?

    Was going thru some 9/11 pictures published by Magnum, and some of the pics were shot in pure dust!! WHICH led me to this thread!
