Fstoppers Review of the Outex Underwater Housing

When I first looked at placing my camera into the water I noticed that there was a lot of different options. The most practical and safe method was the big and very expensive dive housings that are used for scuba diving. The cheapest, most dangerous option was the little plastic zip lock bag-type housings that can be found on eBay for $100. I wanted something that would not break the bank, but would also be safe enough that I could put in an expensive DSLR plus a lens, and trust it would be safe. These stipulations are what brought me to the Outex underwater housing.

The Outex underwater housing is a middle of the line underwater housing. It’s definitely better than the zip lock bag styled housings, but it won’t keep up with the expensive housings used for scuba diving. In fact, this cannot be used for scuba diving at all. The Outex housing is IP08 tested, which means it can be submerged to depths of 10 meters. That makes this housing perfect for pretty much any water sport, other than scuba diving. It is also used for other events such as color runs, mud runs, and other types of activities where your camera may get dirty or wet. For this review, I will be talking strictly about using this housing in the water.


10 Portrait Photography Mistakes Every Photographer Makes (and how to fix them)

Portrait Photography Mistake No. 3: Too much depth of field.

As alluded to previously, selecting a small aperture to create extensive depth of field isn’t always a good idea with a portrait.

If the background is busy or cluttered it may distract from your subject. Choosing a wider aperture, for example if/5.6 will often produce better results.

Even if the background isn’t heavily blurred, restricting the depth of field a little separates your subject from the surroundings giving them greater dominance in the shot.

If you find that the background isn’t as blurred as you would like, ask your subject to step forward, increasing the distance between them and it.

You could also switch to a longer focal length lens as this will result in less depth of field at the same aperture, although you will have to move further away from your subject to maintain the same composition.


What a First Time Photographer Needs to Know

The news that you are photographing your first wedding often leads to emotions ranging from excitement to apprehension, and in some cases, fear. Assuming you have experience with your equipment and have developed the necessary skills to take great photographs, the wedding event has a greater likelihood of being a successful one if you follow some key steps.

This article provides an overview of important steps to follow before, during, and after the event. As with any important job, the keys are preparation, focus, and follow-through.


Proper preparation before the event is the best way for a photographer to have a successful outcome. I spent several weeks before my first wedding visiting other photographers’ web sites. I read books on wedding photography, and I researched photography blogs and forums. It is amazing how much information is available for little or no charge. These tips and photographs can inspire you and get you thinking about what you want to accomplish and how you are going to make it happen.

It is important that you have a standard written agreement that is signed by the bride- and groom-to-be and the photographer. There is no excuse for not having this document in place. It should describe the deliverables and the fees associated with the service and products. It should also include a model release so you can use the photos for promotional purposes. It is highly recommended that you contact an attorney and draft a standard agreement that protects you.

At the time of signing the agreement, there are two other opportunities to enhance the process. First, get to know the bride and groom. Spend some time chatting so you will know their story and they will know you. When the wedding day comes, they should feel comfortable with you so their true personalities will shine. If possible, include a no cost or low cost engagement shoot so everyone can gain even more of a comfort level. It is a good opportunity to give them some posing tips that they can use on their wedding day.

It is also imperative to know the schedule. When you are meeting with the bride and groom, go over the agenda for the time you are expected to be at the wedding. Get to know their expectations. Let them know when you expect them to devote time to photographs with you in charge. This is a good time to talk about a wedding coordinator. If they will designate a friend or family member that will help the you identify important family members during the wedding day, it can be a tremendous help.

Landscape Photography Tips

We’ve all had the experience: Driving through a beautiful landscape, you stop at every scenic overlook to make photographs sure to capture the grandeur of what you see.

You get home, look at the pictures, and find them flat and boring. All the elements that enthralled you at the time are there, but not the feeling. Why?

When we look at a landscape, our eyes travel over it and selectively focus on the elements that we find appealing. Our field of vision encompasses a great deal of the scene, but our eyes and brains have the ability to ignore all except the most alluring details. Lenses and sensors or film cannot do this by themselves. They need help.

Time is the most important investment you can make in getting good landscape pictures. When you arrive in a place you’ve never visited before, spend time scouting—driving or hiking to different locations, finding different vantage points. Carry a compass to figure out where the sun will rise and set, and imagine how the place would look in different kinds of light. This can take some practice because you also have to look at where the light will not be falling. Photographing a canyon, for example, you might see that the west wall will be beautifully lit in the early morning, if the canyon is deep, however, the east wall will be in such complete shadow that your camera will be capable of rendering it only as a great black blob. Unless this is the effect you want, you’ll either have to modify your composition, shoot it later in the day, or plan to return on an overcast day when both sides will be photographable.

Lucia Griggi Images cover the globe

Lucia Griggi’s father is from Venice, Italy, and her mother is from London England, which perhaps explains her Marco Polo inspiration to trek around the globe capturing beautiful images along the way. She started her career as a surf photographer, but has transcended her search to paths both near and far from the beach, pursuing her passion of travel and understanding. In under a decade, Griggi has become a leader, and her work respected and followed by many in the industry.

Have Kayaks, Will Travel.

Up until now, most of the photos we took on the water in dynamic conditions were shot with small waterproof cameras like the Nikon coolpix aw110. It’s a very good camera, but it simply doesn’t provide the features and photo quality of the the DSLRs we use on land (and, occasionally, on the water in calmer conditions). Early this summer we learned about a new product that allows us to use our DSLR on the water without worrying about it or the lenses getting damp. The Outex system is comprised of a soft latex camera cover, optical glass lens, and a viewfinder or LCD screen lens. The camera cover is sized to fit specific cameras and a range of lenses. You then choose an Outex optical lens that fits the diameter of your lens and screws into the filter threads. The latex cover fits over this and is sandwiched by a washer and threaded ring that fit over the optical lens.


Outex DSLR Product’s Success Brings It Expanded Distribution with South Africa Agreement.

Los Angeles, CA – After exceeding its Kickstarter project goal by 4 times (422%) and successfully completing delivery to its backers, the Outex brand of all-weather DSLR housings continues to expand its reach. Lucare Corp, makers of Outex, began accepting pre-orders for their LCD-based products after delivering the first shipments to its Kickstarter backers in July, and sales have continued to grow.

“We were pleasantly surprised with the level of enthusiasm for the LCD products” said Roberto Miglioli, one of the company’s founders. “These new products broaden our market share by making Outex more compatible with brands and models, and by increasing the capabilities of its use in the field by cinematographers and photographers alike.”

“It’s rewarding to see the fruits of our labor manifesting themselves in many positive ways” added JR deSouza, the other co-founder of the brand. “It’s gratifying to see the caliber of the work our customers are generating with our product. And they’re happy that it’s enabling them to push the boundaries of what’s possible. In the age of e-mail, we’ve received actual, paper thank-you cards.”

Lucare has struck an agreement with Cairnside Distributors, a South African distributor that will represent and resell Outex products in the country. Patrick Benade heads up the company and will be driving a number of sales and marketing efforts in a country known for its great terrains and picturesque landscapes.

“Cairnside is excited about bringing Outex to South Africa”, said Patrick. “We’re seeing tremendous demand for it in light of our climate, geography, and outdoor culture. South Africans are adventurous by nature. We have an enthusiastic photographic community who is passionate about the outdoors and often finds itself in situations with dust, mud, surf and sand that can have dire consequences for their DSLRs. Outex will enable enthusiasts and professionals alike to get closer to the action without putting their equipment at risk. Outex adds a dimension to photography and video that we’ve not had before, with a portable, practical solution that’s also affordable”.

“We are glad to see this amount of enthusiasm from our consumers who shoot in these conditions.” said Roberto Miglioli, one of the company’s founders. “The LCD viewfinder goal is to broaden our market further for cinematographers and extreme photographers for about any weather condition.” added J.R. deSouza, the company’s other founder. “With Outex’s LCD viewfinder we grant users not only greater access for still photography but also fuller functionality for the video market.

Outex: We’ve Got You Covered

WHAT: SLR cameras anywhere.

It’s malleable, small in size, lightweight, and modular in its design – grows with your needs. This specific Kickstarter project is for the “Big O”, the big Outex LCD viewfinder window, which is new. The Outex system is already available at


Kickstarter Project Exceeds Goal In Less Than One Week

New OUTEX product adds video support to its outdoor and underwater SLR camera accessories line up.

Los Angeles, CA: Outex has grown its professional photographer fan base across multiple continents over the last 2 years. SLR video demand has been high and Outex ignited a flurry of interest and excitement this week when it introduced its video solution for all major SLR camera brands.

“We’ve been working with award-winning photographers from National Geographic, Red Bull, Outdoor and Surf magazines, as well as members of the US armed forces,” said JR deSouza, one of the company’s founders, “but demand for video has been high, and the new Outex LCD/Video viewfinder matches the seamless transition between still and video capabilities of today’s cameras.”

Outex is being adopted by outdoor and adventure photographers for a host of applications; surfing, wedding, military, kayaking, camping, climbing, fashion, swimming, etc. Outex products are ideal for outside photography, because they completely isolate exterior elements from the camera, while maintaining operational control and maximizing tactile feedback. Because Outex is lightweight and compact, it can accompany the photographer year round anywhere the camera goes tucked in a case pocket, and installed when needed in minutes.

Outex users include award-winning photographers from National Geographic, Red Bull, Outside Magazine, VOGUE, Illume Award Winners, and members of the military.

Outex announced it’s video product through a Kickstarter project at, and blew past it’s goal in less than one week’s time. The project is scheduled to conclude at the end of March.


Outex shields adventuresome dSLRs from water, mud, snow

If you like to roll around in the mud, you might like the Outex Waterproof Camera Cover.

It features a patented seal design that keeps your camera watertight (up to about 33 feet) and weather sealed from snow, mud, and dust. The accessory is crafted from a special latex compound that makes it flexible and rugged. It also comes with a large circular window at the rear that allows users to preview images and gives a full view of your camera controls.

Besides covers, the company sells a range of optical lenses, viewfinders, and accessories that can be used as a kit with Outex covers.

The Outex could be a good balance between functionality and price considering what’s available now. Although waterproof bags are cheaper, they can sometimes be clumsy and of inferior quality. And while dedicated underwater housing lets you dive deeper, it is less mobile and much more expensive.

To start, all you need is to do is build your own kit to suit your gear. Kit prices start at $190.

Shooting with Outex in Afghanistan

In military situations the environment is often unpredictable. As a Soldier, I want reliable results from the equipment I know and trust. In Afghanistan, conditions were harsh on all of my camera equipment, but ruggedness is just as important as size and weight. I needed to travel light and be quick on my feet. I used OUTEX to protect my Nikon D-40, keeping out sand and dust without incident.

Chris Burkard, Outex and Kamchatka, Russia

This past August Chris Burkard, Cyrus Sutton, Dane Gudauskas, Trevor Grodon, and Keith Malloy set out to explore Kamchatka Peninsula in eastern Russia. For two weeks they camped out, looking for waves, and fly fished. After the second World War, the Russian Government limited all travel, including Russian citizens, to this remote area, making the Peninsula one of the most remote and undeveloped places in the world. Since opening up in 1990, limited development has affected the area, but swell forecasting cannot dictate a trip to Kamchatka – like most surf trips these days – because of the difficult travel plans required to visit. The Peninsula boasts the most active volcano chain, one-third of the Pacific salmon and the largest population of brown bears in the world.


Aboard the Team New Zealand AC72

I don’t mind getting wet for a good picture, but I hate getting salt water on my expensive camera gear.

Pro series Nikon digital cameras and lenses do have amazing weather resistant seals but I doubt they were designed to sit in what amounts to a horizontal salt water waterfall which is what you can get on board a fast moving yacht.

I have been trying out a camera waterproofing product called Outex.

The Outex system is based around a latex camera condom with glass ports for the lens and viewfinder.

Once enclosed the camera can be pretty much used as normal, under water to a depth of 10 Metres.

You have to remember where your buttons are and you can’t review the images on the LCD screen of couse but it does allow you to hold and operate the camera as you are used to.


WIRED Magazine; Into The Wild Without Worry – Adventure Gear for your DSLR

Underwater and water-sport photography needn’t be so daunting. Outex makes a range of fully waterproof molded latex covers for DSLRs ($250-400, depending on the model) with glass lens ports to maintain the best possible image quality while photographing in sopping wet environments.

I used an Outex setup for a canyoning adventure where I followed a creek down a narrow canyon. To give you an idea of how wet this trip was, I was wearing a lifejacket, a helmet, and a full-length, hooded 5mm wetsuit. The day included sliding down slick rocks rappelling down waterfalls and, where the pools were deep enough, jumping off 35-foot high waterfalls. I was taking pictures the whole time and holding my camera to my chest as I made the big jumps.

Jon Nash in Action with Outex

How about this awesome shot of Jon Nash using Outex this past week? Thank for sharing Jon. Glad to see our product put to such great use! Keep up the good work.


Jon Nash Photography

Aged 16 all Jon Nash knew was that he wanted to become a professional photographer. Armed with nothing more than a camera he started out his photographic journey learning the basic tools of the trade assisting studio photographers.

A year later and full of bravado Jon Nash headed off to South Africa to record and capture the horrors of a nation repressed by apartheid. Caught up in a troubled country Jon Nash was thrown into the deep end early in his career and here learnt the importance of shooting quickly and under pressure to deliver raw emotion.

Following the rigors of his African experience Jon elected to spend a year living a more sedate life and worked onboard a cruise ship as the ship’s photographer in the Caribbean. It was here that he was introduced to the world of ocean yacht racing when he was presented with the opportunity to crew a boat back to England. Without hesitation he jumped ship from the cruise liner into a career that enabled him to travel the world on a quest to deliver a range of perfect sailing and adventure shots.


TechCrunch – Go-Anywhere SLR Camera Housing

Hardware Startup Outex Takes To Kickstarter To Fund Its Go-Anywhere SLR Camera Housing

I like to use my SLR, but there are many times when I leave it behind because I’m not sure whether it’ll be able to handle the conditions I plan to be using it in. LA-based hardware startup Outex is trying to make sure that photographers can use their cameras anywhere, without having to fork over north of $1,000 for environmental protection gear, and it’s taking to Kickstater to fund the latest piece in its product puzzle.

The Outex is a flexible casing for DSLR and other interchangeable lens cameras (it works with mirrorless systems, too) created by founder JR deSouza and his cousin Roberto Miglioli based on their shared love of photography, a hand-me-down from their grandfather, and a lack of good affordable options on the market for protecting cameras during use in harsh conditions. DeSouza told me in an interview that he and his cousin needed something that would work for surfing, kayaking, shooting around the pool, military applications and more, but that didn’t mean sacrificing portability or spending a mint to buy.


Rapid Magazine Review

Mud, dirt, sand and water don’t stand a chance against this tough SLR protection system. Compatible with dozens of cameras, the Outex uses professional grade optics, a cover that maintains tactile feel and an excellent viewfinder to completely envelop your camera with a submersible, watertight seal. It eliminates the need for bulky hard cases or flimsy bags so your cameras’ ready when the moment strikes. A variety of accessories let you build a setup that gets you close to the action while protecting your investment.
