What Underwater Case Sizes are Available? Which One is Best for my Camera Gear?
There are currently three Outex underwater housing cover sizes available: Entry Cover (100), Pro Cover Regular (110), and Pro Cover Large (130). Larger covers can be used for smaller cameras, but not the other way around. Specifications/sizes can be seen below. All covers are compatible with all/any Outex front port size and vice versa. So you can purchase multiple covers if you'd like. And all of our optical glass front port sizes, including both dome sizes, are compatible with any cover size, so you can mix & match and add as many of either as you'd like from the PARTS page. The camera KITS include a size cover you select, and a flat front glass port size you select.
This cover is part of the Entry Kit. It is designed for beginners (Entry level users) because is does NOT have a rear glass opening, and limits functionality.
Pro Cover Regular
This is the most common and fits most (80%+) of the cameras in the market. The Pro Kit ships in regular or large sizes (110, and/or 130), depending on your choice.
Pro Cover Large
Our largest cover is designed to accommodate large camera body, such as Canon 1Dx, R3, Nikon Z9, Phase One, Hasselblad, Blackmagic, and others. It's also good for use with battery grips or other attachments that extend the size of the camera. The Pro Cover large is also ideal for long/large lenses, that exceed 200mm focal length.
Specifications of the physical dimensions of all 3 sizes can be seen below.
All Pro covers work with all/any rear and or front glass options.
The video below shows them side by size for size and usability comparison:

Add-ons, Accessories, and Compatibility
Each cover size comes in various formats that accommodate add-on accessories such as tripods (T), lighting/flash (F), tethering (T), cable adaptors (T), pistol-grip (G), etc. The numbers correspond to the number of additional such openings.
Pro Cover ("T0") = 0 extra openings
Pro Cover T1 = 1 extra opening
Pro Cover T2 = 2 extra openings
All are available in either/both sizes.
All Covers are backwards compatible, so existing Outex gear (front glass ports, rear glass, accessories etc.) work interchangeably with any/all of our PRO covers.
The Outex system works like LEGOS. You can build, mix and match as needed.
