overall this is a nice design. have you considered heat dissipation. it would be less of a concern if only the camera internals were used. a similar example would be the outdoor housing for indoor yi cameras, offered on amazon. the original chassis is discarded and only the camera internals are used. there is decreased concern for heat dissipation, as the internals are not encased “twice.” another recommendation is a rubber gasket that the power cable would pass through, further ensuring weatherproofing by preventing elements from getting inside. to decrease the weight and possible interference issues, have you considered adjusting the case to accommodate removal of the magnetic case, it would not provide much functional value in the case, yet leaving the magnetic base could pose possible interference issues (ir). removal of the magnetic base also enables easier msd access as less steps are required; i.e. open the outdoor case, access the msd directly, no need to move the magnetic base out of the way. also, what if the depth of cover1 and cover2 were reversed. then, cover1 is essentially a “lid” and the camera is inserted into cover2, then the lid (cover1) snaps on top. this would help in situations where the camera is mounted in a high and/or inconvenient location. with the current design, if cover1 came loose, the entire camera could tumble down. if you reverse the design, and cover1 is just a “lid,” if cover1 came loose, only cover1 tumbles down. the camera stays secured in cover2 which is attached to the mount. if cover2 has the greater depth, it could be lined with material to keep the camera snug. do you have any prototypes available for testing.
