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.

Outside Magazine reviews the waterproof camera housing

These days, it’s not an adventure unless you capture it on camera. And while photos and videos from your iPhone are good ways to start, if you’re looking to elevate your game, you’re going to need to upgrade your gear.

To get the big shots in extreme environments with your DSLR, look no further than the Outex waterproof housing system ($499). The Outex camera cover is made from a supple waterproof material that lets you access the camera’s buttons, switches, zoom and focus rings. Large viewfinders let you look into the eyecup and see the LCD screen. Outex covers work with tripods, external wiring, fisheye lenses, and mounted flashes.

Kickstarter: DSLR Cameras anywhere

SLR cameras in any environment, even underwater for stills & video, maintaining functional controls, flash, tripod, tethering, etc.

Outex: We’ve Got You Covered

WHAT: SLR cameras anywhere. Outex hermetically seals SLR cameras from the elements, even underwater (tested to 10 meters/33 feet), maintaining photo integrity (quality optics) and complete control over camera functionality. 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 www.Outex.com.

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.

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.

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.
