Waterproof cover for digital cameras that makes it possible to take high resolution pictures underwater "OUTEX"
When you want to take underwater photographs, using a waterproof case may degrade the quality of the photos or limit the cameras that can be used in the first place, but even if you use a camera for underwater photographs Often times I can not take photos. So digital camera covers that made it possible to use cameras of various sizes to capture high quality pictures were "Outex"is. It will be possible to take the sticking digital camera to the inside of the water or mud.
