coffee spilled on camera

GRRRRR someone I know spilled some coffee on my K20D
If you guys would know how i felt and how I still feel!!!!!!
Now I got button that are harder to move and some that are more stickier and the button on and off on the battery grip is really hard to move and when I move to live view on the battery grip the button sticks there.

PLEASE KEEP ALL LIQUIDS AWAY FROM YOUR CAMERA!!!!!

It that someone drank his/her coffee black, the problem would probably not have happened. May I suggest that you put your weatherproof lens on the camera and use plain water at room temperature, or perhaps a tiny bit more, to dissolve the sugar and cream?

Yes thank you lol I have put water between the buttons and it seem to be putting the button back to normal, guess we panic too much when bad things happen to our babies

Was it a nice Italian Expresso or a Spanish Cortado or the Starbucks crap that everybody drinks in Canada and US?

If the former not only was it not worth it but you camera is condemned by all the shopping list of by-products that people put in that %$@&*.

Cheers,

Cover up the mount and wash



EDIT: The camera is weatherproof, not waterproof. Doing this is not advised

I'd be happy to put my 1Ds2 + 24-105 up against your K20D + favorite lens and see which lasts the longest getting soaked any day. (I know people who have accidentally SUBMERGED theirs and they came out fine.)
