Well, I've sent an SD card to space (on a student project). In such an environment, you do run the risk of data failure and other failures in the sorts of what is mentioned here. To be exact, in space you can expect impact of tiny particles at any random spot on your electronics and they can cause a short circuit. So you make systems 3x redundant.

On earth the risk is much lower. There are so many electronics on an airplane that we should've known the risks of gamma radiation by now. There is no radiation shielding, just EMC (electromagnetic) shielding on the electronics to protect from noise and inaccurate measurements.

Why would image sensors be extremely different from other precision electronics? Why don't we have our forums filled with complaints of deminished image quality from all the travel photographers?

On the other hand, film camera's do suffer from the x-ray scanners as it causes a color cast on the exposures. That's a whole different thing...

Interesting dicussion.
I'm an airline pilot flying the Boeing 737, we're typically operating at altitudes of 34 to 41,000 feet.
I take my Canon 6D almost every day at work.
It goes through X-Ray scanners, suffers constant vibrations and (some) firm landings, changes in temperature and air pressure and receives - just like me - lots of radiations.
After about a year and 800 hours in the air, a mere 30 000 photos later it is still working perfectly with maybe 2 or 3 dead pixels.

I don't have a problem flying with my camera, but it does add more soreness to my arms. ߘ

"This is why all major manufacturers are shipping cameras by sea and this is considered an industry secret because of the fear of lawsuits."

LOL. Such a bunch of bull. Manufacturers ship via sea because they can ship bulk shipments in containers and its much cheaper. Try fitting that much amount into a plane with other shipments. Not to mention weight limitations.

So I guess photographers who travel should be taking boats to their locations? Or ship their gear 1 month before the shoot so that when they land, the gear would be waiting for them?

Don't bring your smartphone, tablets or laptops either on the plane.
