Reminds me of a dismantled camera that was displayed in the window of a local 
photo shop many years ago. It had been dropped into sea water and then 
brought in for repair some weeks later - it was just a corroded mess!

There was a card next to this camera which suggested that if you dropped your 
camera in the sea, then you should immediately dunk it into fresh water. This 
should be done several times, with fresh water each bath, to get *all* the 
salt out of it. The water would not do much more damage than had already been 
done, but leaving any salt inside was fatal. Of course this was some years 
ago, before cameras became a mass of electronics!
