Is it worth repairing moisture-damaged digital camera?

Specs: Macintosh
My Canon T4i stopped working immediately after taking shots of waterfalls in rain. Unfortunately I did not protect it so I think moisture got in and perhaps coroded some parts within the camera? Is it worth repairing it?

First you might take the battery out and set it in a warm, dry place for a few days--not the oven. Maybe drying it out real good will get it going.

If not, is it still under warranty? If so, send it back and pretend you don't know what happened to it.

If that's not an option either, go ahead and get an estimate from a shop. It looks to be a fairly decent camera that could probably be fixed for less than a new one would cost.

This might be an old wives tale, but I have heard people try this with water damaged phone.

Stick it a bowl of dried rice, apparently, the rice absorbs the moisture.

A thank you would be nice, if I have helped.
