    All it takes is a couple drops of moisture in the wrong part of the phone for it to short. You best bet is to make sure its 100% dry before trying anything else, but with the note on the snap crackle and pop you hear its more than likely fried. If it did somehow survive and your suspicions of condensation on the inside lens check out i'd be afraid picture quality wont be the same due to the sugars left behind once the moisture evaporates. Wait it out, hope for the best.
