The Nikonians® Community motto reveals its purpose: To Share, Learn and Inspire.
Since the year 2000, we are helping photographers and videographers of all skill levels to shorten the learning curve, improving skills and results, hopefully while saving you both time and money. All this while making long lasting friendships across borders.
We are a not-for-profit community for all Nikon® users, their worldwide home.
We are independent and we have no advertising and no sponsors. This means we have the freedom to be open and honest, no hidden agendas, no paid content and there is no user tracking for serving ads.
Nikonians is for you, our member. You are the center of our universe.
We are here for you and our existence is because of you. If you are a professional or amateur photographer, an imaging professional or videographer and you
Need answers to your questions
Need information about certain gear
Want critique and feedback on your images
Need more exposure of your work
Simply want to expand your network and make new friends
...then you have come to the right place.
José Ramón Palacios (jrp) and Bo Stahlbrandt (bgs)
We wish to present this community as a humble tribute to:
- The Nikon brand that has given us and so many others so much joy in photography
- The pioneering efforts of all those anonymous engineers who have made, and continue to make extraordinary advances possible within photography
The generous Nikon corporate loyalty to all the users world wide, clearly manifested through the possibility to use nearly any Nikkor® lens on any Nikon camera ever made
Our mission is to provide the best possible practical advice on photography, in a friendly, creative and inspiring atmosphere for ambitious photographers and videographers of all skill levels and demanding imaging professionals where there is room for each of us to share, learn, inspire and to be inspired. We do this in an easily accessible and honest community where all members openly and respectfully communicate among each other.
Our vision is to be the worldwide home for all Nikon users, regardless of their level of expertise or location. With your help and support we know we can fulfill that vision.
As an ad-free community we are completely dependent on receiving membership fees.
As a new member, we expect you to become a contributing, paying member as soon as you happen to like the community and appreciate its resources for your enjoyment and progress as a photographer. Your support is most appreciated and needed to help sustain the growth of the community.
