It would give the camera some added flavor though and certainly up its resale value.

    X-ray'ing AES carts is an interesting idea, but unless you mean "x-ray" in the general sense of looking inside (ie, ultrasound), there would be no way afaik to make out anything meaningful. Plus with 2 boards in the cart they would be on top of each other in the picture. I would think actual x-rays would damage or probably damage something anyways. So yea, provenance is still best for now.
    Getting a camera inside would answer as many questions as opening it. I think you may have the answer.

    An xray should be able to tell the shape of the PCB and maybe if there are eproms. But a conversion from legit parts would probably pass.

    You need to X-ray your head I think, glazball.
