Sony PCM-M10 and metal detectors!
« on: June 12, 2021, 09:35:57 AM »
With the concert industry finally opening up, at east in the U.S., I have noticed that a lot of venues are now prohibiting ALL bags, including the clear NFL bags for stadiums.  Below is the bag policy for Raymond James stadium in Tampa Florida:

"A NO BAG POLICY IS IN EFFECT FOR ALL EVENTS AT RAYMOND JAMES STADIUM. GUESTS ARE ONLY PERMITTED TO BRING IN ONE CLUTCH PURSE NO LARGER THAN 4.5” BY 6.5”.

With this in mind has anyone had any success with taking the Sony PCM-M10 through a metal detector?

You could totally fit an M10 in a clutch purse.

I have yet to NOT set off a metal detector, except for the one time took in way too much gear and it just didn't do anything.
this is definitely not normal

Has anyone had any experience with the PCM-M10 - if it DID set off the detector or it DID NOT?  Back in the day I would just stuff the "clear" NFL bag with clothing; hats; keys and the PCM-M10 etc. and the attendant would do a minor look into the gag, which was not put through the defector, and hand me back the bag after I went through.  Now I would have to put the PCM-10 on my person - hence the question?

Tell them you have large metal objects as genital piercings and ask if you need to show them?

This is a question I've wondered about for years.. just not enough to make the effort to test myself.
Anyone know?

Are AA batteries not permitted at events? Why do they have to be inside the recorder when you walk in?

They don't of course.  I've just wondered about it for years! 

Just another good-to-know data-point for achieving confidence, whatever the strategy might be.

Here's a reason- Some recorders may not retain settings, or at least accurate time/date setting for long without batteries installed.

Now I'm curious about whether an A10 will set off a metal detector. I guess I may find out soon.
