Question about Casio Exilim EX-Z40 Digital Camera
Sorry, but salt water is horendously corrosive and also conducts electricity as well.
The corrosion will affect both the electronic components and mechanical parts. The condcutive action of the salt will short-out electronic components even after the water has evaporated.
If this happened recently (a day or two ago), it may be worth asking a repair shop if they can help.
If this is too expensive or not possible then on the basis you've got nothing to loose, you could try imersing the camera in clean fresh water for a day or so (chnage the water at least twice during this time), then allowing the water to drain out and then drying it out completely in a warm but not humid place - like near but not too close to a central heating boiler - for several days.
You may be lucky, but I suspect it's now beyond repair.
