Re: 550EX speedlite dropped into fish tank
Yes, I believe so. If we are lucky, the electronic device once dried up, can still function. Now I recall my handphone had dropped into a toilet bowl before but still usable (after thorough clean before use). Also, my stereo was drenched in rain during my school days many years ago when we had pinic at the beach and after sometime, it could still play cassettes.
