This close to the trip there is nothing you can do. Consider buying a second 6d maybe even a used one, then get the other one quickly off to canon and explain to them that you have a trip in a week and would be nice to have it back before you leave.davcanon6d said:Hi guys
Ive just been to Iceland for a week
My new Canon 6d has taken a serious beating!
At first I had my camera covered with a weather cover, but the weather so extreme the first couple of days. The camera got soaked with a Sigma 24mm f1.8 lens on it , weather proof?
I know the weather sealing is 'splash proof' but the camera got completely soaked, seriously soaked two days in a row and maybe another time. To make matters worse, I spilled half a cup of coffey on it on the first day (clogging the rear whee l- it took a few days to unclog- but I could have cried)
I didnt do anything to dry it other than leave it out in a warm room in my hostels etc.
The wheel on the back and the selector switch and set button dont really work like they did before now, but I have a bigger problem, the camera is behaving strangely. sometimes when i switch it on, it dosnt turn on and i need to take the battery out then flick it on again to turn it on- when i use the third party battiers i bought for additions, it sometimes dosent even work!
i bought a 3 year warranty, but im going to Norway next week on another photography mission and I really want to use my 6D
anyone with any help? that would be great
Worst case is you have two bodies, not a bad thing, and you can easily trade the used 6d back in or sell it later. Consider the loss a "rental fee".
Don't waste time fretting over the damage...just take care of it and do better next time.
