    Do we really need to introduce joke tags here? Does it really need safety advices for ovens as "Do not use for drying electric equipment" in the same way as "Do not dry pets in microwave oven"?
    If electrical equipment gets wet (and it's designated to get wet like most of the cameras) just remove all batteries and let it dry slowly. Give it wipe with some cloth, remove the lens and put it into dry cabinet, that's enough. Anything else just bears the risk of damaging.
    The heat required to kill fungus spores will also kill your camera.

    These are correct answers
