Mine got rained on and stopped working. Canon refused to repair as they stated "The camera isn't weather sealed, it's weather resistant"

It's not as tough as the marketing initially made it out to be. Treat with common sense and care.


Canon doesn't make weather sealed cameras in that sense. Even for the 1DX they advise to keep it dry...

The 7D is not a weather sealed camera. It should not under any circumstance get wet. It may survive some rain, however, there are no guarantees. If you need a camera with weather seals you should look into our EOS 1 series cameras.
To clarify, none of our cameras or lenses should be immersed under water. The EOS 1 series cameras and certain L series lenses do offer weather seals. These seals do not make the equipment water resistant or water proof. You should always try to keep the equipment dry.
