A DP2 outdoors in rain and snow for three months

On August 5 I took a "camera portrait" of an old Yashica SLR with my DP2 which I bought new in 2011.


After that the DP2 has been missing until two days ago when I found it two days ago. It had been left on a stone out in sun, rain, snow and around -5C. It looked mouldy and I did not expect it to ever work again. Should have let it dry first, but I tried to turn it on directly. Not enough battery to extend lens, but enough for display a few seconds. Wiped it clean at home, let it dry and charged the battery. Works fine!

Taken just now

Here it is.

Anyone with a similar story?
