Vector Developments is a British company responsible for both the SeaMoon line of high-end onboard cameras and the Seenite line of long-range, stabilized, cabin-top models. All are cased in polished stainless steel, with features like nitrogen purging to reduce condensation, and the new SeaMoon Passerelle is unique for its ability to see in a full 360 degrees all at once, and without moving parts. The resulting screen image is composed of two 180-degree panoramas, meaning you can thoroughly monitor an aft deck or engine room without the need of panning controls. This nifty trick is accomplished with precisely curved mirrors inside the three-inch dome, but it will cost you about $3,100 per camera.
