It's official now. The new Panasonic camera that went into the lake last weekend is indeed dead.
I waited a week before trying to turn it on. Plenty of time for it to dry out. But to no avail. It's dead as a doornail. A very lifeless and relatively expensive doornail.
I really liked that camera and was going to replace it with the same model but I got too good a price on it last month. I paid $120 and the best price I can find now is $150 and I can't justify paying 25% more right now.
As a result, I went with a $70 special that was on Amazon today. It's a 10MP entry level camera. It'll do for a while. I'll try to not dump this one into a lake.
