    Whatever you do, don't throw it away. Even if things don't work out - and hopefully they will - there are always people around looking for project cameras, learning about repair, needing parts, etc.

    That was just a catch all comment. There are so many different cameras some use batteries some don't.

    In a pinch uncooked instant rice can substitute for dehydrating packets. If you're in N.A. you may want to give Mr. Odess a call to get specfic instructions.
    The good news is that the camera should get through the ordeal with no problem. Salt water would be a different matter though.

    Thank you all for the comments. I am currently on the road so when I get home home I will decide what to do. I have the 501cm sitting at home in a box, that will be my main film camera for now. I may end up putting this up at ebay and see if I can recoup a little of my initial expense.

    If you sell it, what would you ask for it?

    I've got a Nikkormat that has gone through 2 salt-water dunkings. Got it in to be CLA'd double-quick each time, and it still lives on. I seldom shoot 35mm these days, but it still worked last time I loaned it out.

    Now the digital camera that jumped into the tide pool - complete toast!

    I have decided to part ways with the 500CM. http://www.apug.org/forums/forum379/...ml#post1078415

    Then put the following in the eBay listing: "I do not know much about these things, but it worked the last time I used it.", "rare" and "hard to find in this condition."
    "Near Mint, very few signs of use" is what I was thinking!
