Ida killed my Pan Cam

After at least 3 years of using a Pan cam outside it finally died.
I had it in a silicone skin but water managed to climb up the cord into the USB connector.

Not bad for a camera that wasn’t designed to take the elements. :grin:

Hard sell, eh? :face_with_monocle:

I had a v2 slung under a window ac housing in an especially driving rain, no special protection. It failed, short-term, but I shook it out and put it in my cotton sock drawer for a couple of months then it was right back to work. Quite a trooper. :+1:

Wow, what an interesting background and career. More than just a pretty sweater.

I haven’t thrown it away. I’ll give it a few days and try it again.

Ida thought you would… :slight_smile:

I had the same thing happen to my pan cam, just not due to Ida. I opened it up, dried it out for a week, looked for any rust or corrosion, and after putting it back together it worked just fine!

Put it in Silica Gel Desiccant Beads to dry it out.
Use Dielectric grease to seal out moisture to begin with.
