  Re Salt Water
  Posted by: VK1NF on Feb-18-13 9:57 AM (EST)

All three of our Pentax Optios - the 43wr, the WPi, and now the W90 - have been used mostly on salt water. I load fresh batteries and a card before heading out - so there is no need to open the battery compartment while paddling. Back ashore, I rinse the body in fresh water, dry the exterior with a soft towel, then open the battery compartment and carefully dry off the seals. I then leave the compartment open for an hour or so. Have never had a hitch with water penetration...
