I took my camera to the beach, took a picture and put it back in my bag. I then took the camera back out to take another picture the lens extended but then it went back in again it went to go back out but stopped and a loud beeping noise started and a message saying lens error restart camera. I don't know how to restart the camera and if that means turning it of then on it still doesn't work. What can I do now?

Hey so I took my camera to the beach one day and despite the great lengths I went through to keep my camera away from the water, a wave got to it and it got wet. I assumed it only got wet on the outside and didn't really look elsewhere and went ahead and turned it on. When it wouldn't turn on, I checked the battery and there was a little smoke coming out of the battery slot. Apparently some water had gotten into there so of course I freaked out because my extremely expensive camera was n
