Can you believe it. When I went to collect my camera after an outdoor timelapse, I find a bird has shat all over the top over the camera. It must have perched on it and then had a good clear out.

Shat? Is that how the OED conjugates that verb?

Is the camera functional/repairable?

wait.. so you took the camera apart just because there was bird poop on it? It sounds like you were just looking for a
reason to take your 1ds apart... :rolleyes:

Well look at the PCB, good reason to take it apart no?

pretty strange that the sealing didn't keep it out though!
