    Hi,

    I'm flying to Mexico tomorrow for my first vacation in over eight years.

    My question is do I have to be concerned about my D300 passing through the X-Ray machine at the at the airport?

    Thanks folks!

    I've passed my D40, lenses and accessories through airport twice and I have no problems to report.

    Just don't take your memory cards through the metal detector.

    My 5D went through airport xray and other security xray about 30 times or more so far
    ... no problems.

    I am more afraid when I transport film.

    BTW, for film, the particle radiation you permanently get on intercontinental flights might be worse than xray security.

    Never had a problem, either with film or digital in airport scanners. H

    Photo equipment is fine except for certain films. And those will be marked on the box "do not x-ray"
