Really bad news and a real pity for you. I read this week rise won't speed up the drying procedure. Air drying is the best.

I assume that the 360 was powered on when falling in the water. Then there will be much more damage because of the shorting inside.

agreed.

if you can open the case and set the electronics equipment in front of a fan, or better yet a dehumidifier, that is your best bet. However I also agree that if the flash was on when it went for a swim it is probably ruined. Actually, even if it was off it is probably ruined. Sorry.

rick, inside a softbox i doubt you are going to notice a huge difference.

never thought of the protection factor. Does this use the same three tiny screws that the regular "mushroom" diffuser uses?

No screw it just pops on and off

Is there a way to use the LED modeling light attachment w/the AD-S7 or AD-S6 (the foldable softbox/BD or umbrella attachment?

I never liked the bowens s-mount adapters as it defeated the purpose of having a small, portable strobe unit w/o needing adapters.

Oh goodie! Let's hope that they finish this stage of development quickly off with integrating FTR-16 & FTR-16S type in the new frequency receivers to bring the v860C fully into the system. "Under development" we hear; hurry up with the "Now available"!

The wind just send my 360 in my Apollo Octa in the Seine (Paris) during my shoot today. If i put it in rice 2 or 3 day is it going to work again? And what about the battery ?

Ouch - but that's what insurance is for, to reduce the financial impact of such accidents. Bigger/more/heavier sandbags next time, I reckon.
I think it highly unlikely that the flash will have survived although there's perhaps a very slight chance that the battery pack will be recoverable.
Rice would be very slow and not particularly effective, my tendency would be to go to the nearest Pharmacy and get some Silica gel, dry this thoroughly in the oven for half an hour then put this along with the electronics in a sealed plastic bag for a week.
Good luck!

I should have mentioned ......

  • Most but not all silica gel has a saturation indicator. You need it to be deep cobalt blue (indicating total dryness) with no trace of pink.
  • The sealed plastic bag is purely to ensure that all the dehydration effect of the silica gel is directed at your electronics with none wasted trying to dry the room atmosphere - just an efficiency thing, nothing else. In our European climate at this time of year, it can go from deep blue to noticeably pink-ish in under an hour when exposed just to the air in the room.

You can also look in shops that sell stuff for automobiles. A brand is Pingi which has the indicator so you know when to put it in the microwave. The steam is pouring out when heating up so I do it steps of three minutes instead of the whole nine minutes at once.

So i been doing some googling and searching but couldnt find a clear answer. I picked up a (3) Neewer V850 with triggers from a buddy who wasn't using it. I'm planning to add a bulb Flash (AD360) to the mix and was wondering if I'm able to get a different (re)brand of the AD360 and still be able to use all the lights together with the trigger sets or do I have to specifically get the Neewer AD360 branded one?

For instance, if I get the Godox AD360 + Godox FT16 triggers .. will godox triggers also work with the neewer triggers?

Absolutely, you can mix all different branded ones with each other.
