Day 239 – 580EXII With A Side Of Rice
Somewhere buried in there is a Canon 580EXII flash.
To cut a long story short, I dropped it while out light paining and of course it landed in a puddle of water. My first thought was that being weather sealed, it would be fine…. of course when it was picked up it was not in one piece. 😦
The flash was already off, so the batteries were immediately removed. As soon as possible, it was placed in a sealed container submerged in rice and I left for about 36 hours to simmer. I had heard of this technique being used to dry out phones that had taken a swim, and was told to give it a try.
Upon removal it was a little dusty from the rice.
Once cleaned, a new set of batteries were installed… and I held my breath – Success! Awesome. 😀
