Spanish translation:ojo de buey, portilla
Explanation:
(1) This seems to refer to a submarine vessel rather than an underwater camera.
(2) "Viewport" may refer to the "porthole" (nautical term for "window")and used for viewing something in particular.....
(3) Porthole in Spanish is "ojo de buey" or "portilla."

I hope this proves helpful.

Greetings from Brazil
