Default Airport security

I know about airport screening and x-ray machines with film but do these x-ray machines harm digitals cameras. I own the Mavica cd500. Thanks for any help and info.

Default airport security AKA five finger discount

Carry it with you!!!!!!! DO NOT trust them and put it in checked baggage! I lost my digital camera at Sea-Tac internation airport to the security screeners! And they and the airline will take no responsibility for it!

Kinda scary. If they can take things out of your bag and get it out of the airport (obviously without proper supervision), whats to stop them from putting something in your bag! (i.e. bomb).

I am about to travel home from a trip to Denver, but last week when boarding the plane, the screeners wnated me to put my laptop in a separate container to run through the scanner, but I requested a hand check on my bag that contained my Canon G3 and Canon ZR40 camcorder because of the tapes for my camcorder. I did not have any problems. Just make sure that you keep an eye on your bag and inspect it the minute they hand it back to you after an inspection.
