SLR Camera Covers from Outex

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.

Sarah Lee – Capturing What You Can’t Control

Underwater photographer Sarah Lee ( loves the unpredictability of nature and creates art that captures the interplay of people, water, and light. Unlike other forms of photography, where pixels are painstakingly crafted, Sarah embraces what she can’t control and uses her photography to find beauty in the chaos.

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.

Underwater Rugby – Extreme Adventure Protection!

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.

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.

“There are some places with mysterious associations and almost mythical character; Norway is one of those places to me. Endless sunlight, cliff-lined fjords, lightning blue rivers flowing from glaciers into the sea, it’s easy to see why. Since I started kayaking I have seen and heard about this Scandinavian kayaking oasis and its unbelievable rivers, but I never thought I would get to paddle here.” —Kayaker Chris Korbulic, Born Out There

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.
