XZ-1 Takes a Dip! Help!
Jun 20, 2011

OK- it happened. My XZ-1 went in the water and got wet (along with me). Submerged but just a couple of seconds. Water is in the casing and inside the lens.

Best advice? Took out the battery and card... I think the card is toast. As it dries I insert the battery to see if it responds... so far no. Does this need to go back to Olympus to see what they can do?

Is there any hope?
