How does the Outex System work?

Quick overview of the Outex system and how it works

The Outex ecosystem of products (Covers, Front Glass Ports, Rear Glass Port, Domes) and add-on accessories (Tripod, Lighting, Strobes, Remotes, Tethering, Pistol Grip, Straps, etc.) are modular products and work together. They can be configured in multiple ways interchangeably into kits - like LEGOS, so you can mix and match covers, ports, and accessories as you wish. Outex works for all camera brands and types: DSLR, Mirrorless, Film, Medium-Format, and Video. Our Covers and glass ports work together to create our patented waterproof seal.

For a detailed look into the system watch this interview by Travel & Discovery Channel Adventure TV Host Kinga Philipps.

Travel and Discovery Channel Adventurer and TV host Kinga Philipps discovers the best underwater housing system for professional cameras in this Outex interview with co-founder JR deSouza.  Kinga and JR met on the set of a Nikon short film with professional photographer Lucas Gilman, where they both worked to create a video about Nikon's latest Mirrorless camera - the Z series - in combination with the Atoms Ninja V recorder, outputting Pro Res RAW uncompressed video from the camera to the recorder.

Here's another example from our YouTube channel (#Outex), where you can find thousands of examples of the products in use by professionals and amateurs alike around the globe. In this interview with cinematographer Mathew Sutherland, Matt and JR discuss the preparation and behind the scenes for a short film Matt prepared for Panasonic/Lumix for the launch of one of their cameras.

We have multiple examples from customers around the world using the Outex Pro Kit Large system with not only still cameras, but video and film devices, including RED digital Cinema, BlackMagic, Hasselblad, PhaseOne, GFX 100, Canon C70, and others.  Additional examples can be found on our Community page/menu, including the Blog, News,  Reviews, and social media channels.
