Kind of surprised at how unsealed the switches on the lens is. I wouldn't have thought that it would have bubbled so much.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Wonder why he did not trying to have it fix. Looks like it is in one piece. Water damage beyond the point of fixing???

"Digital Rev" on Youtube put a 7D through a lot worse pain, and it lived!

Why would he toys around with it by washing it that way if it is not broken?

Would it survive after a wash like that if it is a functional camera or lens? I do not think so and I would never try, would you?

That is cringeworthy. But are there really people out there who have to be told not to take the joke seriously?

Yes. Like people who thought the iOS update would make their iPhone waterproof, or the reporter who though that the movie Gravity, was actually shot "on location". . . . . . in space.

I knew immediately that it was a joke.

It was that fat pervert in the red suit who sneaks into your house to watch your kids while they are sleeping. And you thought those spots on the floor in the corner of their bedroom was just something they spilled....
