There was an article or post about this about a year ago. Someone was making a device that could be carried on a person and would interfere with the electronics on a camera up to 30ft away. They talked about it being away for celebrities to foil in your face paparazzi or at least the ones using dgital or film cameras heavily reliant on electronics.
What if you could carry a device that did emit an EMP signal that could fry the insides or at least disable a digital camera. Would you be liable for damage to the phtographers gear or could you argue your were defending your privacy?
Don't know, but I wouldn't want to be on the wrong end of the lawsuit when it got used in the vicinity of someone fitted with a Pacemaker...Quote:

I suggested once to my electronics friend a portable destroyer of electronics, made that way: a small, GN 28 or more if possible flash with bad lamp has the lamp replaced with a coil - a pair or two of turns of thick copper wire, maybe with a ferrite rod inside. When the "test" button is pressed, the unit emits a strong directed electromagnetic instant impulse, enough to blow any input circuit of induction-based sensors or similar things. What's interesting, my idea worked - it was tested, as I was told, on a subway tourniquet. Well, I am not guilty that such ideas come to my mind... but maybe my scheme would work with digicams, too? Just take something like old Metz 60 with lead-acid power pack :)
Are we living in a totalitalian state? It's another military tool that's being introduced to us and that does perhaps more harm than good. Now whoever owns a piece of digital recording device is undoublty subject to this claim.
There are perverts and others who have no morals whatsoever with or without cameras, but that's a whole different issue as we know.
