Ominous water leakage in E-5
Oct 12, 2013

Folks:

A glorious day on Sydney Harbour yesterday so I took out my E-5 and ZD50-200 non-SWD with some dinghy sailors from Balmoral SC. A few pics below:

When I got home I put in the shower to wash off the salt, as I usually do, but when I was towelling it off I noticed the top display was fogged up....when I switched on, it started racking through the focus and firing randomly. None of the control dials or buttons would work. I finished towelling it off and blew it dry inside the flash with a can of compressed air, then put it in a warm fan forced oven for an hour or so after removing the cards and battery. It eventually came good...I wonder if it knows my EM-1 is on its way?

Rob
