Abstract : A portable camera jig for use by divers in making closeup, stereoscopic photographs of underwater surfaces with a single lens camera includes, in combination with a sheet metal frame, a clear water box for operation in turbid water and that will permit illumination and operator viewing of the surface to be photographed, a camera support and parallogram linkage for moving the camera laterally between successive exposures, a light source mounted on a mast, and handles by which an individual diver can position the jig and shift the camera.
