Question about Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera
I dropped my camera in the pool for probably one second. It was off and I took out the batteries and memory card out as soon as possible and didn't turn it on yet. It's been about 6 hours, but I'm waiting 24 hours to try to turn it on again. What should I do? Is my camera okay?
If it does not fire up, I would dunk it again - this time in warmed, distilled water, moving it around a bit, then putting it in a warm (not hot) place to dry but I would probably give it a week.
Distilled water is non-conductive whereas pool water is . . . who knows?
