Good thing it wasn't a Canon, poor woman would've snapped her rod trying to reel in one of those wristbreakers ;-)

The canon would still have been usable, though. :P

This happened to me about 20 years ago. I was fishing in a river in northern Wisconsin when I caught what I thought was a snag. Got the snag loose, and it was still fighting, so I thought I might be a fish.

Continued reeling until this point and shoot 35mm appeared at the end of the line.

It was obviously soaked, and I poured out all of the excess water. Brought it back home, and open it up as much as I could using a screwdriver. I set it in the hot afternoon sun to bake for about 4 hours. I put it back together, bought some film, and gave it a shot.

It worked! Everything worked. The shutter, the flash, the...well that was really all there was to this camera. But it served me well for a number of years. I wonder what happened to it.

I've seen plenty of Cannons in Virginia and Europe that have been around for hundreds of years and still work...

If you have not watched the video the sad part of this is how he lost it.

The owner was attacked by a couple guys who didn't want their picture taken. It's amazing how some people act in regards to "privacy" when they are walking around in public. How many private "acts" or "situations" could you be involved in at a public lake? There was no reason for him to lose that camera.

I get this with my camera sometimes and more often with my drone as if I am capturing some sort of Illuminati secret that they don't want exposed.

I was in India over Christmas time. One morning whilst we were visiting an old mausoleum in Delhi we decided to take a few minutes out and sat down on some steps in front of the monument. We then stood up and wandered off towards another part of the site. I noticed that there was somebody following us and, when I turned around, he came straight over, armed with a DSLR . Just as I started to put all my defensive barriers up he said....... "I hope you don't mind but I took a picture of the pair of you back at the mausoleum steps. Would you mind if I kept it?"

I don't know what surprised me more - his courtesy or the fact that someone wanted to keep a picture of me!

Yeah, sadly their new slr models haven't managed to shed much of their older counterpart's weight.
