I dropped my camera in the lake/river/ocean; Is it repairable?

There is a graet chance that your camera it's repairable if you bring it in within 24 hours of the accident. But if it's drop in the ocean you have to act immediately, because salt water is more damageble to your camera than any other liquid, and if you wait too long it might not be repairable.

I have beach sand inside the mechanism of my camera; Is it repairable?

Yes, its reparable if you bring it in within 24 hours of the accident. If its only sand most of the time it's repairable, but if its sand with water we would have to check it, but its probably that it is not reapairable, it also depends on how much water and sand does the camera has.
