NYCkayaker camera & Your Photo, Wow!

On my first kayaking vacation trip I managed to dump all my camera gear
in the bay. My video camera was ok, it was in a water resistant sport
housing. My SLR and film within were toast, as was my P&S. Amazingly
though I removed the CF card from the digital camera and let it dry and
was able to get all the pictures I took off of it and into my laptop
when I got back to my hotel!
