actually i think the camera got submersed in salt water. In which case, flooding it out with clean water, then letting it dry (placing it in a bag of rice, dry cabi, etc) may be the last chance for resurrection.

What we see may be only 50% of the whole story. Unless we know what happened before that, it's difficult to judge whether his action is silly or not.

so what scenario would require the user to flush the INSIDE of a DSLR (which contains all kinds of sensitive electronics) with water?

If the entire camera has been dunked into Salt water. I would do the same, and hope that after drying out, nothing is corroded too much.

My vote goes to the salt water story. Still, I would probably use distilled bottled water instead of a hose. You'll never know what's inside that water...

hose water is better than no water. Wait a couple of hours to get to distilled water, damaged is already done.

:bheart: if the camera got dunked in the sea, must do "first-aid" this way i guess... since the alternative is between possibly saving the camera or totally writing off the camera :sweat:
