I'm a newbie with cameras. Just found out that my 3 year old DSC-V1 has corrosion. Sent it in to the Sony repari service. Wasn't impressed with the first person I talked to. She said corrosion "just happens". Which made me wonder how a camera only 3 years old...and a Sony...could just start corroding. But talked to a more knowledgable person today. She did imply that some liquid got into the camera.

Any thoughts on this? I have a Sony Video camera that takes excellent stills. Thought about investing in a flash for that and call it a day. Any thoughts?

Did they say what kind of corrosion? Battery acid?

Any bare aluminum will corrode quite readily if exposed to salt air. So, living along the Pacific Coast, as I do, does pose some problems. Hence, salt water, also has the same, but accellerated corrision effect.

When I flew very large seaplane in the Navy, we were also chasing the corrision problem, even on scratched painted surfaces. It happens!
