Hello, today I went riding on an elephant across hillsides and then went down into the river with it, where it rolled me off its back and squirted with me with a lot of water. I gave my GF1 +20mm for safe-keeping to one of the elephant-mounted guides who wasn't going into the river. A few minutes later, as I was splashing about with the big pachyderm, the guide dropped the camera from his elephant. It bounced and rolled into the muddy river, where it stayed for about 30 seconds until the guide had got down to retrieve it. The camera no longer works, although possibly hopeful signs are that the SD card is still readable, and no water entered the sensor chamber. The camera and the battery are now sitting in an airtight box of rice grains, many of which are turning white. The tour company say they'll take it to the main town tomorrow to have it cleaned and give me compensation if it can't be fixed. Any ideas about whether the GF1 is likely to be able to survive such a torture test (I couldn't have imagined a worse one -- sounds like something warped Kai from DigitalRev might have devised!), and if so how long the repair is likely to take? I have to leave the country (Thailand) in four days, so time is pretty limited! Thanks for any help!
