    Default what to look out when cam fall into wet sand?

    I was at the beach when tripod tiptoed and left side sink into sand..

    No scratch on body cos the metal connecting the strap hit rock i guess..

    shouldn't be any problem la....fire a few shots, see exposure still accurate anot, whether shutter got funny sound...

    if not, no problem one la...cause tripod fall quite 'gracefully' one..and from not-so-high and on sand....no problem one la..

    thanks all.. luckily all is fine i guess.. cos I didnt see water cos the sand is 20cm above water level though wet..
    removed sand and shot photos for quite a while..

    upon return home used a brush and removed more sand from corners.. and put in drybox liao..

    scared what might be unforeseen dangers..

    nothing will be wrong with it. as long as it didn't dunk under water.
