So what would it look like if you put a camera in the washing machine, closed the door and gave it a whirl?

Well, It's nearly 5 in the morning, and I'm feeling silly...

In it goes, I've stuffed the machine full...

Aaaand... (the colour is me holding a rust coloured shirt in front of the hatch)

Well, what can you expect really, it's swirly...

Real world exif: spin mode with hard spinning off all together, tap very off, lots of towels... and turn the machine off at the first clunk.

I didn't break my camera :D

    That's one way to clean your sensor! Nice soft images, Pyry. Did you use Downey?

    How did you trigger these?

    Thank you for the laugh. :D

    Downey pillows would have been a good idea :D
    Trigger was a programmable cable release.

    Now that must be the proper way to wet-clean the sensor. Did you use "Tide"? mwink.gif

    Would have if I'd had a diving box - had to go for dry cleaning mwink.gif

    Would be seriously cool to rinse and repeat with a waterproof camera set on video and some little diving lights :D
