So I was out today in London just taking some pictures when it started raining, the camera got a little bit wet until I bought an umbrella, when the rain stopped, the camera seemed to be working fine, all the buttons and everything's good, except that the zoom in button just doesn't work at all! I keep pressing it but nothing happens, it doesn't seem to be stuck or anything, it just doesn't work! I don't know what to do really, is there anyway to fix this??

Oh and another thing, sometimes when I press it, it works just once, then it stops working again for a while, it's totally random!

remove the battery and leave it dry

It actually worked. Thanks a lot man! And apparently no, it's not weather sealed, had to learn the tough way!

Canon quotes their dslr's as "water and dust resistant" but there is a little note at the bottom of their brochures saying... "EOS cameras are water and dust resistant, however, it is not recommended for use under rain". End of quote. :p
