Have them dump that crap in distilled water right now, I would bet you could save at least the lenses. Heck, maybe even the camera, all that stuff is solid state.

If anything, have them keep the equipment in a cooler of water until they have a chance to get them into shore. Keep the air from getting to them . Then transfer them to the Distilled Water wash.

WOW, what a story.

Jay, I have all of my cameras and guns and the like on a personal effects policy through State Farm. It's pennies a year compared to their value. As you start over on some of the equipment, it might be worth your while to look into the same type of policy.

They have replaced my camera twice under this policy--no questions asked. Once when it was stolen; and second time when I left it on the bumper of my truck and took off down the road.

Maybe the flash card will be ok and if he had ahold of the camera tight on multiple shot mode there may be a sequence of pictures of him going in the water..

Bingo. Good thinking. Just like when marine archeologists retrieve old artifacts from the depths of the ocean after long periods of submersion, they never let the spoils dry out. That's when the worst damage occurs. When you get the stuff home Jay, put them in RO or distilled water immediately and rinse thoroughly. You never know...there may be a glimmer of hope remaining for your stuff. Cool stuff on the retrieval expedition.
