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.

Back by popular demand, our original "shorty" Top-Down Porthole now features attachment mechanisms for nearly every camera available!  Besides the original 3-screw DSLR barrel mount, the optional adjustable C-bracket accommodates nearly every smartphone out there.  Another optional angle mount connects any point-n-shoot camera with a tripod screw mount.  This is a recessed threaded hole in the bottom of your camera that is a standard size (1/4"-20 threading) for mounting to tripods.

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.

Great service and amazing products!

Everything I buy from her is we'll build and lasts. The really have the customer in mind when building there reactors. They are very easy to setup adjust and change out media. The best reactor I have ever owned! Just ordered my third one.

upgraded from previous version

So I had the older version of porthole but it was too long and wasn't always easy to take good pictures with. I like the new porthole which also has the smartphone mount so makes it very convenient to take pictures of frags in a hurry.

Spyglass Reactor

The build of the reactor is great. I'm using it with Purigen and that still seems to be somewhat challenging to use in a reactor.

This is just what I was looking for. Perfect and very helpful for shallow tank photography.
