Can I Use the Outex System for Multiple Cameras and Lenses?

Yes. The Outex underwater camera housing system is modular and the covers, lenses, viewfinders, and accessories work with all brands, makes, and models of cameras and lenses. This including accessories such as tripods, tripod mounts, triggers, lighting solutions, cabled solutions, tethering, pistol grips, etc. Here are some additional considerations:

  1. Housings come in different sizes to accommodate camera body shapes and types. Outex cover sizes are small (100), regular (110), and large (130). Detailed dimensions are provided in a different FAQ entry you can examine. A larger housing will always work with a smaller camera, but not the other way around. (There’s just leftover space inside the housing.) You can zoom, twist, turn, and operate all your functional control.  

    Each Cover (or case) size comes in various formats that accommodate accessories and add-ons, such as tripods (T), lighting/flash (F), tethering (T), cable adaptors (T), pistol-grip (G), Entry Kit (X), etc.  T1 = 1 opening. T2= 2 openings. All Covers are backwards compatible, so existing Outex gear (lenses, viewfinders, adaptors, etc.) work interchangeably with any/all of our covers. Thus, the Outex system works like LEGOS. You can build, mix and match as needed.

  2. Rear glass is universal, and the front glass optics match the filter thread size in front, and support all f the standard sizes; 49 mm to 105 mm. You can get step-up rings of all sizes; from any size to all sizes, such as 52-77mm, or 23-67mm, etc. Just add the generic "step up ring" item to your cart, then specify the size you need in the comments field as you check out.  You can also use 3rd party step up rings if you already have them. Remember, stacking step up rings may cause vignetting. For additional information on the Rear Glass options, contact

  3. The accessories compliment the system and serve multiple purposes, ranging from accommodating tripods, flash, holding straps, securing floating optics, etc. The Outex system is like LEGOS, you can add each component modularly over time. All the systems are compatible with the Pro Kit configuration.

The automated process automatically recommends the right Outex housing system based on your equipment and use, so when you make a selection we automatically send you the recommended size. You can request a specific size if you prefer.
