    Oh no, Sarah!! It really is broken?! Let it sit a little while longer. Maybe it needs to dry out completely for a few days?!

    Warranty is only through Canon, and it's pretty much void after water damage. It's not a flaw in the manufacturing. It's a flaw in the owner ;)

    The good news is that as soon as budget allows, I have found a replacement, that actually has better specs and is really what I need (until I can afford the $900 upgrade for the Rebel that I currently have): Canon PowerShot ELPH 320 HS 16.1 MP Wi-Fi Enabled CMOS Digital Camera with 5x Zoom 24mm Wide-Angle Lens with 1080p Full HD Video and 3.2-Inch Touch Panel LCD

    just a thought...if its the lens...couldn't u replace just the lens to save money until you get your upgrade? sorry to hear it. my old camera all that broke was the plastic piece for the battery slot. (can't replace body ) this was my fav camera i had for years and could use it blindfolded so never had to figure out where stuff was. may yours RIP

    guess I'm a tad late

    It's a point and shoot. It would cost more to replace the lens than buying a new camera.

    That's the camera that fell in the water. I have a DSLR, so I have a "back-up" but holy crap, that thing is bulky and does not fit in a pocket (which I need for field trips and the like). Yeah, I have a phone, but I lost 80% of the battery in an hour yesterday, just using that camera

    BOO!! Looking at it positively though - at least you didn't lose any of your photos! That would make it 100 times worse!

    If I would have lost my pictures, I would have been so mad!
    I'm going to attempt to let it dry another day or two (I'm not even going to be home a chunk of tomorrow, so that's a plus to making that happen, ) and then I'm going to see if it helped. It's still in rice, so hopefully that helps.

    A lot of the vloggers I watch have one (of several different makes and models), so it looks to be the good one.
    Plus, it records in 1080p, and I'm already spoiled by my webcam that records in that.

    So sorry to hear about your sweet camera Sarah. Ugh ... how awful. I hope it survives after sitting in the dry rice.

    Cathy ... I did the EXACT same thing. I ran over the cord of my brand new vacuum cleaner the very first time I used it, lol. It was an expensive one too ... a Kirby (back in the day). It didn't kill it. It just killed the cord ... and of course it was great fodder for my hubby to razz me about, lol.
