Nikonians is a large community with lots of activity in various places. As a first time visitor, we know it can feel a bit overwhelming, so here are some areas that you might want to look at for starters. None of these require you to sign up with the community (which is free on its "Basic" membership, by the way).

How-to articles, tips & tricks plus more
We have many public articles. These are how-to articles, guides, reviews and tips & tricks from both professionals, our team and members. There is also a continuous series of articles titled "I am Nikonians", where our members own photography is on display and where you can hopefully be inspired. Start enjoying our public articles section :-)
Weekly updates in our blog, plus twitter & Facebook
The other area containing a lot of information is our blog. If you want to follow us on twitter or Facebook, you will also receive updates whenever there are new items to read about. Once a week, we compile interesting news happening in the community, in the world of photography and around Nikon specifically. You can find our blog right here.
If you are not a fan of twitter or Facebook, but like to get the weekly top 10 updates in an easy, uncluttered format sent to you via email, you can subscribe to our newsletter. By the way, we are never giving out your email address to anyone.
The market place
We have many, active discussion forums where members hang out. To read and potentially participate in a majority of these, you must be a member of Nikonians (the Basic, free membership is good for accessing many of them). Some forums are though available without the need to signup. Our marketplace is one of these, where members sell gear. Have a look, it contains lots of interesting stuff with daily updates.
Your public info is good, but I am ready to signup for a membership
Beginner at photography?
Just because you are new at Nikonians does not mean you are new at photography, of course. Never the less, here is an overview for anyone who wants to freshen up on the skills.
Enjoy our community :-)
