OK after having a bit of an epic yesterday whilst training with the mountain rescue team in frankly biblical squalls of rain, my G12 has become somewhat damp and refuses to turn on. I removed the battery and recharged, no problem. Removed the SD card and dried off. The camera is currently in our airing cupboard, perhaps not ideal for condensation issues I know, but I need to get it dry.
Now, as I put the battery back in, there is a very faint, motorised sound for literally a second; it is only just audible as I place my ear next to the housing.
I'm hoping that some of you more experienced folk here can tell me if the camera is 'kaput' or if it just needs extended drying time? I'm really angry with myself for not stowing the camera and its case away in a dry bag in my rucksack and also because now I don't have a camera with a built in ND that I can shoot with.
Any help or advice would be very much appreciated.
A very unhappy, Elton
