The lowest profile will with good image quality will be 1" sensor cameras like the RX100, G7X MkII or LX10, but they have limitations like limited wide angle capability, but you can add on wide lenses.  Really depends on what you hope to shoot with it.

I have used a nauticam rx100 housing with inon wide lens and this is about as slim as it get with very acceptable image quality.
