As some of you know i Was down the koala creek with Travis easton when my trypod fell over and my canon 5DMark11 landed hard on some rocks and then fell in the drink i was in like flash and pulled the camera out dryed it and removed the batery .I then sent it of to Canon 3 long weeks later i got the quote 430$ and 200$more to fix the dings .I will pay the 430 and live with with the scars..This camera was in the water for over 5sec and was waterlogged so i am happy..

    Beautiful shot mate, cant believe you came out of it that well! Hopefully it’s good as new and gives you a long and happy life, I’ve had my Canon 40D sent off before because of a strange error

  • Thanks Alistair i got them to give it a clean at the same time..

    Great shot Donovan. Seeing your camera go in the “drink” is not a nice feeling. I do hope they can fix it properly for you.
