We frequently get questions about taking Camcorders through airport security and X ray equipment. At this time we are not aware of any substantiated cases of damage, but, high energy electric fields can under the correct conditions glitch the microprocessor, causing a wide range of strange symptoms. Usually this can be cleared by removing both the main battery and the backup cell for about an hour. In addition, strong magnetic fields can erase or degrade images on tape. To be on the safe side, we recommend having your Camcorder hand inspected.
