Testing A Camera's Waterproof Claims… In A Sink!

The Olympus OMD EM1 is a weather-proof (meaning it’s mostly water resistant, if not truly water-PROOF) compact mirrorless camera that’s been getting attention from photographers thanks to, among other things, those water-resistant features and its nice nod to classic SLR styling. Over at the Phoblographer blog, Chris Gampat decided to test the splash-proof claims by shooting with the camera (and its compatible weather-sealed lens) while running water over it. How? He held it under the faucet and laid on the shutter. Did it work? For that, you’ll have to click through and watch for yourself.
