The relentless rain of the previous days killed the autofocus of the supposedly waterproof camera (Canon EOS 5Dsr) on the approach to Largs. This is trying, unsuccessfully, to dry everything out in a cafe. Fortunately, I’m staying in a B&B for this section so, unable to take any more pictures, I decide to cut the day short and try and dry the camera out overnight.
It worked! The camera functioned again after drying above a radiator overnight with the ports and lens cap open. Lucky I wasn’t camping when this happened. I won’t be so trusting of the weatherproofing on this camera next time. I had a more serious version of this issue with a previous camera (Canon EOS 6D) back in Southampton.
