Water resistance?

Postby Stan » December 25th, 2020, 5:59 pm

I’m new to Digital photography and have just completed a very helpful course.

One question though I forgot to ask was would my camera be water resistant in a shower or a heavier rain fall?

Obviously with under water photography one would need a Waterproof camera.

The camera is a Cannon EOS 550D, thanks.

"Just how resistant are EOS cameras to rain? As far as we know, no one has carried out definitive tests. There are reports of cameras continuing to work after being used in heavy rain. Equally, there are reports of camera malfunctions after exposure to just a light shower."
