10 Reasons For

Easy to Use

A number of Praktica 5000WP reviewers who bought it reckoned that it was easy to use. Five years ago Delicious Fish wrote on Amazon “It is simple to use and has survived two weeks in Barbados - on” in their Praktica 5000WP review. Tony rated the product as excellent and he said on Amazon two years ago “Easy to use” in his review.

Robust

One customer mentioned in their reviews that it was good at resisting water ingress. Delicious Fish mentioned in their review of the Praktica 5000WP five years ago “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” .

Good Quality Pictures

One person wrote in their reviews that this digital camera was able to produce good images.

SD Compatible Memory Cards

This camera supports an SD|SDHC compatible memory cards, which is the most frequently supported compatible memory cards on digital cameras of this age and type. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

Cameras with a better memory card type that might be worth looking at include the Fujifilm X10[plb_1150_price] (SD|SDHC|SDXC), or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ40[plb_2046319_price] (SD|SDHC|SDXC) which also has a higher rating.

The Praktica 5000WP has a built-in flash. Most of the other cameras of a comparable age and type to the 5000WP also have a built-in flash.

We compared this camera to all the other cameras with a built-in flash and we think because of it's better review score, the X10[pl_1150_price], and the FinePix JX500[pl_1672380_price] both from Fujifilm is also worth considering.

Like most of the other cameras of a comparable age and spec to the 5000WP, the Praktica 5000WP does not support video capability.

We compared this digital camera to all the other cameras with a video capability and we think the Fujifilm X10[plb_1150_price], the Nikon 25[plb_1676851_price], or the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS[plb_1206_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
