    how is it posssible for the subay system to delete my photos taken with home
    use digital camera olympus fx 240

    tested this 2 times and each time photos wher in memory ( on storage card)
    when left subway photos where deleted

    cool technology but how was it done--phots taken thru subway car windows not
    a problem

    imagine--monitoring what a person takes photos of without there
    permisssion--i bet my on line registration flipped some m emory on the
    camera so system now knows what caamera is being used and where photos where
    tadken

    any help appreciated

    i am only interested in how this was done

    This would never happen if you wrapped your head in tin foil as clearly
    instructed in the camera manual.

    the tin foil is used for other purposes on the nyc subways.
    lately, girls dressed in catholic school uniforms have been reporting
    entering the subway as virginal as olive oil, and upon exiting,
    preggers
    with alien babies.

    it's true--tested it x2 will retest today

    found url that describes the technology--(lost url but will research--has to
    do with how ccd does not relect like a mirror--this can be detected --once
    done ther are lser techniques to effect the photo--technology came out of
    georga tech

    Because it detects IR beams from small cameras.
