Well this morning wifey and I were up at the crack of dawn, hoping to get a nice sunrise shot but unfortunately, one of my beloved D300's and my fav lens, Tokina 11-16mm, hit the water!! Id rather not go into how, let's just say I have a VERY sheepish, used to be interested in photography, wife.
It was only in for a matter of seconds, but I doubt that matters. I quickly rinsed the salt water off both camera and lens, and removed both the battery and CF card which were dry, then towel dried both body and lens.
Has anyone else gone through this experience, got any suggestions or advice on what I can do if anything? Is it worth getting it into Nikon for repair as it obviously won't be until tomorrow? If so, where in Brisbane do I take it? And what about the lens? Again, is it worth getting it looked at and where would I take it?
I'm presuming that I now have a very expensive paper weight. I think i need to lie down as I feel sick in the stomach. Any advice is appreciated.
