Question about Canon Cameras
The best thing you could do after this would have been to submerge the camera in distilled water and then open it up and dry everything.
The problem is that since the river water conducts electricity , there has probably been a short ciruit in the camera when you switched it on. This could have damaged any number of components inside and it will probably cost (depending on what camera you own) upwards of $200 to have it fixed so it may not be worth your while.
The lens is also a hit or miss. If it's a fully mechanical lens with no electronic components , I would send it away to have it professionally opened and cleaned. If it's a automatic lens , this may cost considerably more as they will probably have to replace the driving motors and electronics. I would put a clean and repair at about $150-$250.
All and all , it may well not be worth it and you could try selling the camera on e-bay as damaged for when someone needs some parts. You should be able to get a few bucks for it but don't count on too much.
