Default first aid for wet camera.

I got my camera wet. I took out the battery and tried to dry it out. I have done nothing else. Is there any hope for my Finepix 6800?

I would leave the camera in a warm dry place (airing cupboard) for a week or more and if the water hasn't already shorted something then you might get away with it. Because the internals of the cam are encased drying out can take a long time.

Or send it straight back to Fuji to sort out before turning on and possibly causing serious damage.
