    Can a Bessa survive a typhoon?

    Yep! Although I had to put it in a closed air conditioned room for a while to dry it out the next day, my "carbon footprint" be dammed

    The answer is, yes, if you use all-weather housing.

    No I have a small, air conditioned room. I put it in there and closed the door. A couple hours later it was dry.

    Great to know. My poor R2M didn't survive getting a couple of hundred kilos of tree on it though. It actually looked quite unharmed but my poor 35 mm Color Skopar was pushed into the body. The strap and case survived though, and now sits on the Leica M6 that my insurance company gave me.
