Outex is a weather and waterproof housing system for SLR cameras. It hermitically seals the camera from the elements so it can be used in all environmental conditions such as mud, dirt, sand, dust, wind, and even under water. Outex works like a drysuit for an SLR camera. Its latex-based housing is lightweight, compact, malleable and rugged, maintaining complete operational control over the camera’s functions, and ensuring professional grade results.
The Outex system consists of 3 parts; Housings, Optics, and Accessories. Housings are molded to contour all major camera brands and accommodate different body sizes. The Optics anchor the housings to the camera’s filter thread and viewing windows. And accessories include a host of modular attachments that accommodates lighting (flash), tripods, wide angle lenses, straps, triggers, tethers, etc. Because the system is modular, it can be used with different cameras, lenses, and accessories within a photographer’s existing toolkit. The modularity also means the Outex system grows incrementally with the user’s needs, and therefore does not require a complete new investment as the photographers upgrade their tools. Basic Outex Kits start around US $350 dollars.
Outex products are ideal for outside photography, because they completely isolate exterior elements from the camera, but maintain control and feel of the camera and maximize 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.
There are benefits to point & shoot or GoPro cameras, but they do not offer the quality, resources, or imaging and functional controls of an SLR. From a housing perspective, solutions fall into 2 categories: bags and cases. Bags are cheap and clumsy, and so are the results. Hard cases yield good photo results, but are bulky, heavy, and start around $1,400 dollars. Outex is an affordable alternative combining the best of each world: professional results, light weight, compact size, and functional control.
