StevenN: Many years ago I was going through security at a U.S. airport, and a young woman TSA agent opened my camera bag after it had gone through the scanner. She took out my SLR and tried to twist off the lens. As she struggled with it, she sheepishly smiled at my girlfriend and said, "I don't know anything about these." Needless to say, I was fuming! I finally said to her, "If you break that, you're buying me a new one!!!"

Finally, she let me take off the lens, and then took the body back from me and stared into the mirrorbox chamber, looking for I don't know what. She then handed the camera back to me and said we could go on our way. What a total idiot.

There are thousands of them worldwide working on shifts 24/7

US bans electronic devices, on flights from eight countries, where US airlines have been lobbying the Trump administration to intervene in the Persian Gulf where they have contended for years.that the investments in three rapidly expanding airlines in the area – Etihad Airways, Qatar, and Emirates – constitute unfair government subsidies with which Delta, American and United cannot compete

Brane2: SMENA-8M:
http://www.sovietcams.com/index.php?1769084597

I've got it I thing somewhere around 1976 as a kid. We were constantly low on $$$, so all I could afford were B&W films, which we used to develop and and expose on photopaper ourselves. No money for colour chemistry.

Years later we managed scramble the cache for "ZENIT TTL" - our first half decent camera with semiconductor exposure sensor:

I used to have the same Smena 8 and Zenit TTL -during late 70's early 80's- which i trade them some years later for the Zenit 12XP, which i still own and use from time to time, and still get great images (portraits together with the HELIOS 2.0 Lens)

spbStan: These situations come up all the time and seldom do they result in lawsuits because the victim is poor.
The fact that a bad cop very rarely gets fired and when they do, they can find another job in minutes because there is no penalty for being a bad cop. When a department has a number of these settlements it usually speaks more about the culture within that department allowed to develop by upper management. Bad cops move on leaving the victims and community to pay for it for a long time. It would make more sense to have all police covered by personal and professional liability insurance as a condition of employment. This way, the repeat offenders will be weeded out by the marketplace. When the cop can't afford his insurance anymore it is only right that he find another profession.
If an a cop is bad, defenders reply, "one bad apple does not reflect on the majority f good cops" and are dead wrong. When no one will turn in bad cops or testify against them, why call them good cops?

Totally agree with you and most of the times those bad cops represent the main line headquarters operate

sbansban: First we had McIntosh brand apples, followed by Apple's Macintosh computers. Now Google is planning to design (driverless) cars and Porsche will be making PC's. And Nikon is diversifying into gourmet fast food, and McDonald's is about to release a prototype of its first high-end DSLR, and .....

A Good One 😄 !!!!
