Canoe Drop

While canoeing across a deep pond with my D50 and 70-300.zoom i dropped the camera into the water and it sank  6 feet down... It was a few seconds for me to jump in and find it on the bottom of the pond. I ran home with the camera shaking it and trying to dry it with a towel the camera was dead..Once home i took off the lens and removed the battery ....AND in the oven they went low heat door slightly open for two whole days...   That was three years ago and the camera is still working perfectly today , same battery, the lens has a few dry water marks inside but still functions perfectly....long live NIKON (cb)
