Handler on the Aquatica A5000

Maurico Handler has provided a mini review of the Aquatica A5000 housing for the Nikon Coolpix 5000 digital camera. Handler also provides some exciting shark photos in his A5000 portfolio.

"Aquatica has done a fine job in housing this camera," concludes Handler, "they have attacked the design, building and delivery of a housing in a short period of time. In a market that changes every three months if not sooner, this is a gargantuan achievement."

I'd like to introduce you to my new website with an o­nline chat and you are all invited! Please take your wetsuit off before coming inside...
