This is great news for anybody upgrading from a GoPro HERO 10 to the new GoPro HERO 11! All existing GoPro HERO 10 housings will work with the new HERO11.
The Underwater Photography Guide has reviewed the HERO 10 and the HERO 11 extensively in the past, so this article won't go into the cameras themselves. Instead, we'll focus on the housings and some great accessories for both. Check out the review below if you'd like to know more about the cameras.
GoPro HERO 10/11 Housings
Isotta GoPro Hero 9, 10 & 11 Underwater Housing
*Ferrari of the Sea, Stylish, Durable*
The Isotta GoPro housing is one of the most luxurious and elegant housings on the market, and it's now compatible with the GoPro HERO 9, 10 AND 11! The Italian-made underwater housing is built from anodized aluminum and comes in Isotta's signature striking red finish. It's a compact and lightweight housing with a double o-ring seal for added peace of mind.
Recsea GoPro Hero 9, 10 & 11 Underwater Housing
*300m Depth Rating, Aluminum Housing, Built to Last*
This Recsea premium aluminum underwater housing for the GoPro HERO 9, 10 & 11 is a titan of underwater housings. Depth-rated to 300m, this housing is built to last and has capabilities way beyond what most divers will need, but it's always nice to know it can handle itself. Both the record and mode buttons on the camera are accessible, which makes changing the settings on the fly a breeze.
Anglerfish GoPro Hero 9, 10 & 11 Large Underwater Housing
*Simple and Reliable, Allows Larger Batteries*
Built from aircraft-grade aluminum, the Anglerfish GoPro HERO 9, 10 & 11 large underwater housing is both lightweight and tough. The sapphire glass has an AR coating, meaning those unwanted reflections underwater are minimized without negatively impacting image quality. An M14 bulkhead port means this housing is compatible with many third-party accessories, and because of its size, you can use larger batteries which means fewer battery changes between dives.
Flip 10 Filters
The other benefit of the GoPro HERO 11 being compatible with HERO 10 housings is its compatibility with HERO 10 accessories, such as the Flip 10 filters. The new GoPro Hero 11 housing from GoPro also works with Flip 10 filters. These filters let you flip a filter down in front of your GoPro mid-dive to correct for certain conditions like the loss of color at depth. They're made from an aircraft-grade aluminum frame and are easy to operate underwater, even with gloves on.
Changing GoPro settings can be difficult, if not impossible, mid-dive while underwater. Thankfully there's now an easy solution. These handy QR codes are perfect for quickly changing between different custom video modes and settings. Simply hold them in front of the lens while diving, and the GoPro will read the QR code and automatically switch to the corresponding settings.
You can change from Wide, Narrow, 5500K Video Light White Balance, Linear + Horizontal Leveling, and Slow Motion in a matter of seconds. The resolution, lens, frame rate, ISO, color profile, hyper smooth, zoom, EV, bitrate, screen saver, screen brightness, and hindsight are all set in the codes.
Some other excellent accessories that are compatible with the GoPro HERO 9, 10 and 11 include:
Inon SD Front Mask for HERO 9, 10 & 11 Black
The Inon SD Front Mask for Hero10, Hero9 Black allows you to mount the Inon UFL-G140 SD Underwater Semi-fisheye Conversion Lens and Inon UCL-G165 SD Underwater Wide Close-up Lens to your GoPro.
An underwater selfie stick, what's not to love? Capture footage of yourself during a dive, or get close to your subjects without spooking them.
