Hi
Got my gear a little wet today while hoping to see a Great grey Shrike (no show on the bird front) got back home and dried my kit out but my D750 is now showing error 50 with the shutter going nuts and firing like mad. Was hoping for a little advice, do people think the body still damp internally and hopefully be ok when fully dry or is it more serious?
Cheers
Tim

That is what I would try: remove the battery, leave all doors open to dry it out some more.

Cheers Niels, after leaving it all afternoon with the body "open" I came to give it another go as it were, but now the camera wont turn on, hoping maybe the battery was drained flat with all the continuous shooting but got a bit of a sinking feeling that I may need a replacement body:cry:

Maybe try drying it out further with a desiccant like uncooked rice? 🀞

Yep my 7dii got drenched in ecuador earlier this year and went bonkers....a night in a bag of dry rice sorted it out

Cheers for all of the replies, allowed my camera to dry out over night (lens off and insides all exposed battery out etc), the camera is now thankfully back up and running, and me thinking of asking Santa for a water proof cover.

Thanks again all

Tim
