About Nikonians - Who we are

The Nikonians® Community motto reveals its purpose: To Share, Learn and Inspire.

Since the year 2000 our community is The Home for Nikon Users. The community has many talented members, some are in official roles as team members whereas others are not, but we are all doing our very best to be helpers and friends. Our volunteers and staff are constantly working on keeping our home a tidy, friendly, non-religious, non-political and courteous place to visit and to hang out.

 

When we are offline

We are doing what we love, also when we are offline.

We are not-for-profit, independent and have no sponsors, no advertising. This means we have the freedom to be open and honest, with no hidden agendas, no paid content and, for example there is no user tracking for serving ads or other analytical software storing what you are looking at.

We keep the lights on 24/7/365 thanks to all of our volunteers, members on a paid membership and our great supporters helping us in our fundraising activities.

All of our pages are using latest SSL (TLS) security and we are compliant with the stringent data protection regulations of the European Union (EU GDPR). This means you can e.g. request complete downloads of your data from Nikonians to transport it elsewhere.

 

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.

You are an amateur, semi-pro or pro photographer, videographer, an imaging artist or graphic designer and you

  • Need answers to your photography 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
     
  • Get together with likeminded photographers
     
  • Plan your next great photo trip
     

...then you have come to the right place: Let Nikonians become your home as well.

Independent of Nikon

We are proud of being independent and we are getting 0 (zero, zilch, nada, nothing) from Nikon Corporation for doing this: There is no relation between us.

We love their products, but we are critical users and we raise a unified voice when factual issues arise.

 

Contact Information

You can get in touch with us online. We are answering all of the emails we receive, but pretty please make sure our reply to you is not caught in some spam filter.
