"The Aquarium Camera app is an essential tool for reef tank photography." – ReefBuilders.com

Finally, you don't need a pro camera rig and special lighting to get great and accurate shots of your aquarium. You don't need to spend hours in post-production tweaking the hue and lighting of your photos. Simply put, you just need the Aquarium Camera and an iPad or iPhone to get GREAT photos and videos of your aquarium.

“So easy to use… Love it!!! And the color changing is realtime so you can see the screen and the real thing side by side to ensure you get the right balance.”
– Carlos Chacon, IT Manager at CoralVue

Special thanks to the members of Reef2Reef.com for testing version 2.0 of the app! Over 175 aquarists tested version 2.0 prior to pushing to the app store. Check out the Reef2Reef forums to see some of their awesome reef aquarium photos! Super big thanks to Reef2Reef members Jason Mack, Scott Nelson, Scurvy and Stratru362 for giving me permission to use their photos in the preview!

I created the Aquarium Camera app because we were tired of seeing posts of brilliant aquariums on forums like Reef2Reef, Nano-Reef, ReefCentral that don't truly represent the health and beauty of the fish, plants and corals inside. It was fine in the days of VHO, Power Compacts and Metal Halide lighting, but with LEDs now taking over the aquarium lighting space, we needed another solution.

Let's commit ourselves to spending less time trying to correct the lighting on our aquarium photos and videos and more time enjoying our fish, shrimp, snails, plants, and corals... oh, and doing water changes.

The before and after shots in the preview were taken on an Innovative Marine 8 gallon nano tank under the original AquaIllumination Nano lights at 70% blue, 70% actinic blue, and 75% white.
