| p.1 #1 · help : rain in the camera |
I tried to search some help on the forum but couldn't find anything answering my questions. I would need some help from FMers who are used to shoot under the rain.
I'm on vacation in Mexico and have had some wonderful weather since the begining of the week.
.......until today when I've been caught under the rain for half an hour.
I didn't have anything to protect my camera and decided to continue shooting, thinking my 7D was sealed enought.
When finally arriving home, I discoverd that some of the buttons at the back and on the top do not work properly anymore, particularly the joystick.
Upon my discover, I removed everything I could (battery, battery cover, I opened the flash,.......) to let the camera dry as much as possible but after an hour the joystick still does not properly.
I know that the weather-sealing does not mean completely-waterproof-ready-for-scuba-diving but I thought my 7D would handle a light rain much better.
2 questions :
In the meantime, does anyone know what I could do to help drying the contacts ?
What is the limit of the weather sealing ?
Any help would be much appreciated
