i went for a walk in the bush a couple of weekends ago and got caught by a summer storm.
did not think too much about it at the time , it was a hot day and it was actualy quite nice walking in the rain.
seems that modern electrics dont like the water though,
i had my digital camera and my phone in my back pak, both in there own protective cases and wraped in a towel .
when i got back to the car the towel was a bit wet but the camera and phone seemed to be still dry.
next day my phone stoped working
thought i had better check my camera.... would not turn on.
sent it away to the repair shop and they just called today to tell me its not worth fixing ,( water damage ). its a bit over a year old.
over a thousand $$$$ down the drain.
when you think about the treatment my old SLR camera has been through, about 20 years of mud, rain, dirt bike trips, bashed ,droped,you name it, and it never misses a photo.
