I protected the camera as best I could but everything quickly became saturated.

One of the nice things about an LF Camera is there are almost no works to goof up

Instead I had to slacken the tension screws a fraction as the wood swelled slightly with all that moisture

The lenses never misted either up when I put them somewhere warm to dry out - but getting them that wet for that long isn't something to recommend
