    Any advice on how to remove moisture/ water from the camera lens on the P3P? I have it sitting in a bag of rice currently, the entire shell has been taken apart and blow-dried. Luckily it was fresh water.

    Thanks

    Did you take the threaded aluminum lens cover off the camera? Unscrews to the left -- grasp it with a wide rubber band or rubber gloves and turn it gently counter clockwise and it will screw right off.

    No, I will do that. I wasn't sure if that was supposed to come off or not.
