Problem with water damage...

Is that if not dried out quickly, the water causes the circuit boards to rust and this might show up right away. On laptops that I've had come through that had liquid spills I pull them apart and spray the boards with Deoxit or WD40 after pulling batteries and draining residual power. Where you may/will run into issues with a dunked camera is water in the ribbon cable connectors causing them to corrode and fail.

There are lots of Youtube videos on how to disassemble a G12, however the lens is a completely different story.
