I took my 5d MarkII with me on vacation on the beach on the Seychelles with my whole family, We wanted to shoot a group picture and I don't like being on the picture with my camera so I lay it down on the beach towels. We took the shots and almost immediately a big wave came and water was rinsing in and out of my camera.

After being dead for the whole vacation I sent the camera to Canon Professional Service and the returned it with the note: "total loss"

So I opened it my self and after cleaning some corroded spots the camera came magically back to life.

In the picture you see the Canon EOS 5D Mark II still with the "total loss", 15mins later
