Question about Cameras
Hi:Once water has been allowed to get into the inside of any digital camera, the chances of recovery is slim.
I say that because of the electronics. Corrosion will be present after a short time. The corrosion will usually lead to destruction of the extremely small circuits and connections. However, if you get it within a very short time, it may be able to be saved. The only way to get it dry within the inside is to take off the back cover. That has to be done quickly after the event. Make sure you know where you have removed the screws from. Let it dry, then reassemble.
Other wise sell it for parts on a site such as Ebay.
Wish it was better news.

Put lens in refrigerator for a few days, they are extremely dry and will **** out moisture. Remove at night and wrap in paper towel and let sit for a few days. Also you can put it in a sealed bag of dry rice or grain or a dessicant bag and that will dry it out. REmove battery ASAP.

Remove battery and memory.
Find a zip lock poly bag that will hold the camera and a cloth or paper back containing salt or rice or flour
put both in the bag put in a warm place and leave for several days.
The contents of the cloth/paper bag should draw moisture out.
However if the camera has been switched on whilst in its wet state
it is probably irrepairable.
