Even for a fee, Canon will not touch a camera that has any evidence of water damage or corrosion.

I guess I should consider myself lucky. Years ago, I videotaped my kids on the beach with a Canon GL-1 and got submerged by a wave. The camera started malfunctioning quickly. Despite the massive salt water damage, Canon did fix it (although at a hefty $800 fee). It still works well (although I no longer use it).
