Camera Protection for Working in The Wilderness by Professional Photographer Dan M Lee
What is Outex
It provides full access to camera controls, viewfinder, and LCD screen, so you can use your camera without any hindrance.
It also works with almost every camera system from DSLR to Mirrorless style cameras, the benefit here is that you don’t need new housing for every camera you own.
Why Use Outex
The Outex Camera Protection System is an excellent investment for photographers who frequently shoot in harsh environments. It is ideal for outdoor photographers, adventure photographers, sports photographers, and anyone who wants to protect their camera from water, sand, dust, and other elements. With Outex, you don’t have to worry about damaging your camera when shooting in challenging conditions.
The Outex Camera Protection System is also easy to use and install. The cover is designed to fit snugly over your camera and lens, providing a secure and protective barrier. It comes with a variety of adapters and accessories that allow you to customize the cover to fit your specific camera and lens combination.
Outex is also perfect for photographers who work in wet environments and around water such as near the ocean, lakes, or rivers. Also for us working in Alaska the added water protection can help with severe rain conditions and working around snow. Not to mention near dusty riverbanks with lots of airborne debris which can cause issues.
Using the done add on(s) (largest done is 180mm) you can take split level shots (simultaneous above and below the water line for example) which enables more creative possibilities.
Because the versatility is so good, it really shines when you want to use many camera systems. I use Sony, Lumix and Nikon and having one platform that covers all of them is a huge money saver and space saver.
The biggest benefit of all is the ability to run and gun with a small lightweight system. While the protection is good for extreme weather it’s also easy to roll up into a small section of your camera backpack.
The only additional parts are the filter thread for each lens you have, some will overlap with popular thread sizes of 72mm and 82mm being the most common. On wider lenses you can clamp the housing directly onto the lens itself.
In the wilderness we also used the system attached and tethered to a solar external power source to record a timelapse of icebergs breaking off into the ocean a glacier (calving). Extras such as tripod mount, tethering ports etc means Outex has a solution no matter what creative challenges you have.
Outex should be included in any outdoor photographers kitbag.
The benefits of using on any camera you own means you don’t need to buy a new housing come upgrade time saving $1,000s. Plus you can carry this system easily without additional space being used up in your kit bag. For almost every environment you encounter Outex will have your back.
In conclusion, the Outex Camera Protection System is a unique and versatile solution for protecting your camera from harsh weather conditions, dust, sand, and other environmental elements. It is a must-have for photographers who love to shoot in challenging environments and want to keep their gear safe and dry. With its patented design, high-quality materials, and easy-to-use features, the Outex system is an investment that will pay off in the long run. So, if you’re a photographer looking for a reliable and versatile camera protection system, give the Outex system a try!
