Peter Fuller's remarks are effectively what I would have recommended , following an occasion on which an acquaintance drowned the computer of his Range Rover in a swamp (mounted under the driver's seat). After he was pulled out it was time to make camp anyway.

The black box was removed and stripped, and everything sloshed around in a couple of buckets of drinking water. By then the campfire was going, and the bits were gently toasted and reassembled. As far as I know, it's still going.

There are differences though; cameras have moving parts! So using methylated spirits to strip the water from all the crevices wouldn't be a good idea.

In the days of mechanical cameras the method was to open it up and put it in the WC and flush several times.
