## Abstract

We have built a new camera system to measure the downwelling polarized radiance distribution in the ocean. This system uses 4 fisheye lenses and coherent fiber bundles behind each image to transmit all 4 fisheye images onto a single camera image. This allows simultaneous images to be collected with 4 unique polarization states, and thus the full Stokes vector of the rapidly changing downwelling light field.
