Probably not is my guess. Not after spending that long in the water and being knocked around. Or if it would, I'm sure it'd need quite a bit of repair and recalibration work.

No way. If that were possible, it would negate the need for waterproof underwater housings.

body looks to me like 60D, but i'm not sure about the lens (24-105?)

anyway, I think there is no way any EOS body would survive this without any waterproof case

I thought it might be a 17-40, but exif says 16mm so I think it must be one of the 16-35's. (Exif also says 60D, so kudos if you hadn't looked that up ;) ).

Yea, looks like a 16-35L, which proves the photographer is certifiable nuts anyway  ;D

I was expecting them to say they cut one up and found it, not strapped to its leg.



Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

Feel free to have a wander round my flickr
