Re: K30 fried after using in rain

+1 on the rice. One of my K20D's leaked and started overheating (shorted battery?) in the field. Took it home and put it in a bag with a cup of rice for 3 days. No issues since, though I've not taken it out in the pouring rain either. Before I do I think I'll take a look at the gasket with a magnifying glass and make sure there's no hairs or cracks that would cause the leak.
