It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dr. Samuel "Doc" Gruber, founder of the Bimini Biological Field Station on Thursday 18 April. Doc was a shark biologist and founder of the American Elasmobranch Society. He was a Professor at the University of Miami and a recognized authority on shark science, having completed 49 Atlantic research cruises and over 170 scientific publications. The Wetpixel community sends our thoughts and prayers to his family and friends/


Please feel free to use this thread to share thoughts, memories and images. The Sharklab will be creating a memoir book and we will submit any posts on here to this too.

These caves offer an ideal environment to capture stunning images, with a wide variety of options to allow for people with different experience and qualifications. We will be working in very small groups to ensure that everyone gets to maximize imaging opportunities.

Hi all,


Nikon released their updated roadmap for lens development with their Z series mirrorless full frame camera at the CES show.

Sadly, there are no (announced) plans for either macro or fisheye lenses in the next 3 years. Of course, existing F mount lenses can be used with the FTZ lens adapter. It is hard to know how or if this will affect IQ or performance.

Dear Wetpixel community,


It is with tremendous sadness that I share the news that Wetpixel member and contributor Dean Burman (DeanB) suddenly passed away on New Year's day. Dean was a filmmaker, with numerous film credits including a film featuring some amazing behavior footage of pike in an award-winning short film called "Lair of the Water Wolf." His input into the Wetpixel forums was immense, with over 3,000 posts and he was always prepared to offer support, encouragement, and advice both on and offline. It is true to say that he was often the life and soul of the party but he was also a thinker, deeply concerned about the plight of our natural world and issues of social justice.

I remember many wonderful interactions with Dean over the years. He had the enviable attribute of being able to make serious points while keeping the conversation light-hearted. During one conversation, we were moaning about equipment issues but his sense of humor meant that we both ended up in fits of laughter! 


Dean is survived by his daughter and parents and our hearts go out to them along with his many other friends at what must be a devastating time. 


Please feel free to share thoughts, memories, and images of Dean in this thread.


Go well, Dean...
