PORTHOLE HOUSING IS NOW BLACK.  NEW IMAGE COMING SOON!

Take great photos of your aquarium from the top down, the way corals are meant to be viewed!  This handy lens housing mounts directly to the barrel of your DSLR lens, allowing you to (carefully) dip the housing in the water and get tack sharp photos without annoying lightbulb reflections or surface ripples.  Using the three thumbscrews to mount the housing on the lens barrel, you can turn the housing to zoom the lens, which can be difficult with traditional top-down photo boxes.

The Porthole features a silicone band for extra grip, and lens standoffs to protect the acrylic from scratches when set face-down.

Inner diameter of the housing is approximately 4" and supports a wide range of lens sizes.  The housing length is 7" overall, and the barrel depth is 6-3/8" to the inside of the acrylic lens.   This allows compatibility with external-focus/zoom lenses and large macro lenses.

Many thanks to our friend Chris Thomas (143gadgets) for the photos taken with the Porthole.  As a professional photographer, he has provided us with valuable feedback during the product's design.

If you're serious about showing off your corals, this is a must!

You can't beat the quality of photos you get using this vs out of water photos. If you love posting photos, sharing photos of your corals you must get one to bring your photography game to the next level. I've made some comparisons on my Instagram Account. Feel free to check it out. @blacklabelcorals

Works as expected

Nice quality product. I have several Avast products. I would've liked for the price that they include a felt bag or something to store the porthole so it doesn't scratch not collect dust. Free shipping should've come with the price as well. It's a little expensive for what it is but a quality product.
