Your Digital Camera And Water Do Not Make A Happy Couple

Feb 29, 2008
There are so many technologically challenging gadgets that we need today and are certain that we could not make do without. Our cell phones, digital cameras, blackberries, and laptops are such treasured items that we usually do not like to leave home unless we bring a few of them with us. Actually, the wonder of all these gadgets is that you are allowed carry them with us wherever you travel to. With all the transporting around that they are subjected to, the chances of them being stolen, lost, or damaged is a real threat.

Normally, warranties on these items will not cover any of these events. We are pretty much on our own as far replacement or restoration. Many of these things might be saved if they are damaged by water. For a digital photo camera or digital video camera, saturating water damage could spell their certain death. There may be a slim chance they can be fixed, but not much. Even the repair services that will endeavor to repair digital cameras of any kind that have been wet by water, will usually charge you a non refundable fee up front, it might be fifty dollars or more, and may not guarantee repair. With odds like that, you may be throwing away more money on it and still not have the digital camera restored the way it was.

The smartest thing to do is avoid getting it wet in the first place. Preventions are not that trying if you just make use of them from the beginning. First of all, you should not allow little children and pets around them. Almost anything children or pets get near may end up getting wet, by one way or another. Slobber is normally not that destructive, except perhaps to digital cameras. When you are brave enough to take your camera close to hot tubs, spas, lakes, pools or any other source of water, for Pete's sake put it in a waterproof container.

A sealed plastic bag may help, but may not be enough. Put it in a sealed plastic bag or into an air tight container. Extra precaution is defiantly not ridiculous, especially if you invested $500.00 dollars or more in it. Even when you are not close to water, your camera can be beyond use if the viewing panel is broken, although this might be restored. An airtight plastic container will also help keep it from being smashed as easily, as well as protecting it from spills.

Water damage aside, digital items can be touchy and the more prevention used with them, the better. We will not miss our new high tech toys so very much as when they get destroyed!
