Members in Media
Many of our members here at Wetpixel are frequently published in various magazines and other media worldwide. A great place to see where our images are being shown is the Members in Media forum area! For example, just this month (in addition to Ellen Muller’s INON Feature Artist award and Alex Mustard’s RobGalbraith interview), Kasey Canton published a wonderful article in Fathoms Magazine, Jack Connick was featured on Divester, and Kimberly and Karl Dietz are showing 30 prints in the International Photography Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
Ellen Muller, INON Feature Artist
Long-time Wetpixel member Ellen Muller (ellenm) is this month’s INON Feature Artist. When I think of Inon products the first thing that comes to mind is reliability.

When To Jump
One of the biggest hurdles facing the aspiring digital photographer is knowing which of the plethora of cameras to choose and when to get it. Digideep.com, a website dedicated to providing an overview of the digital underwater photography market, lists 773 different digital cameras and 483 digital camera housings! It is a confusing and intimidating ocean of choice. The selection problem is compounded when the new photographer then discovers that the camera they have been tirelessly researching is about to be replaced. Suddenly they are faced with the conundrum of waiting for the new model or buying the current one. And whenever you decide to look, there is always the promise of a new model just round the corner…
