If you are not ready to plunge into the price tag of the hard case underwater housing but are serious about wanting to get into more shoots working with the element of water, Jake Kelsick has tested out the capabilities for your new adventure.
Underwater photography is not a cheap genre to get into if you are working with hard case housings rated for deeper depths. However, if you are wanting to shoot more on the surface such as surfing, kiteboarding, or even if you are thinking about being submerged but not ready for the price tag, this video is for you. In searching for a more efficient housing in terms of weight for my surface adventures, Kelsick video on the Outex housing stuck out.
Kelsick brings the silicone housing on his ocean trip to see if it could stand up to the test. The ability to jump from low in the sand to straight into the water without the heavy equipment is a perfect alternative when you are looking to travel light. Many times photographers are looking to still shoot while on vacation or traveling for a commercial shoot. DSLR or mirrorless cameras fit into these housing, giving a low cost and lightweight option for shooting in the elements.
