I remember reading some advice, many years ago,on what you should do if you drop your film camera in the sea;::: "as quick as you can get the camera into a bucket of fresh water,leave it to soak for a while then drain out the water ,leave it to dry slowly and it should be ok."Now wether it was really ok is open to question but because of the lack of electronics and most things covered in grease inside the camera at least had a fighting chance.
Now if I lived in the middle of a desert I might just leave my cd player outside but obviously if there was the chance of rain Id be thought of as a little silly.
Im trying to understand why no-one seems in the least worried that the brand new M9 has no sealing,it seems of little importance to even leica.Now I live by the sea,the air is very salty,will the cameras electronics not slowly corrode.
Now the new S2,surely a more studio based camera,is weather sealed,makes no sense.
Is there something in the design of the M9 that stops water getting in without any extra sealing?Is it possible to know if any M8s have had trouble with corrosion or short circuits.
It would be nice to have answers but what Id really like to know iswhyits not an issue.
