Digital Cameras Need Protecting From Moisture

By: Rachel Yoshida

We are all so fortunate today to have all the gadgets that we are able to carry around with us. We have grown very dependant on these technological devices and feel out of touch if we are without them. The cell phone is one of the most widely used tools. They have grown even more in popularity because of all the things they do. The digital camera and video camera are also popular especially since many people are learning to take their pictures and videos, download them to their computer and then print them.

There are some mishaps that camera warranties will not cover. Water damage is usually not covered. With a digital video camera or digital photo camera, immersing water devastation can mean their certain death. There is a small chance they may be repaired, but not normally. Even the individuals that will endeavor to repair digital cameras of all kinds that have been exposed to water will normally charge you a non refundable fee up front and it could be fifty dollars or more and with no guarantee. With odds like these, you can be throwing away more money on it and still not have the digital camera fixed the way it was.

The very best thing to do is prevent it form getting wet in the first place. Preventions are easy if you just implement them from the beginning. First of all do not allow young children or pets near them. So many things children or animals get close to end up getting wet. Saliva is usually not that damaging, except maybe to digital cameras. When you are brave enough to carry your camera near recreational water areas, put it in a waterproof case.

A sealed plastic bag could help, but not be enough. Tuck it in a sealed plastic bag and into an airtight container Extra care is defiantly not ridiculous, especially if you spent big money for it. Even when you are not close to water, your camera can be beyond use if the viewing panel is busted, although this might be replaced. An airtight plastic box could help keep it from being smashed as easily, along with protecting it from liquids.

Water damage aside, all digital devices are very sensitive and the more precaution use with them, the better. We will not miss our new high tech gadgets so very much as when they bite the dust!
