Robust

One Praktica DPix 5000WP reviewer mentioned in their reviews that it was good at resisting water ingress. Delicious Fish mentioned on Amazon “The pictures are undoubtedly better underwater rather than out of the drink, having said that, if you are chasing fish it is a little hit” in their Praktica DPix 5000WP review and gave the product a very good rating.

Good Quality Pictures
