Step-by-step to find Nikon info | Nikon camera forums | Nikkor lens forums | Camera articles | Search

Short tips on how to find information on your Nikon gear here at Nikonians.
In this short video example we are looking for more info on the Nikon Z7 and its battery.



How to find more info on your camera

1. Register as a member. We recommend Silver level for basic learning and Gold or Platinum for image advice & constructive critique, for your own portfolio and large image uploads, to name a few of the benefits.

2. Use the "Forums" top menu. Select the forum related to your interest/question. Browse the forum or ask a question. Or, search the forums using the search box in the top area. The search is context sensitive, i.e. it will search in the area you are first.

Let's say you want to know more about your Nikon Z6ii and specifically third-party replacement batteries for it. In this case, a good place to start would be the Nikon Z Cameras forum in the MASTER YOUR NIKON CAMERA section.

3. Visit the resources/articles section. Browse by area or topic (both of these are located in the left area of the articles), or use the search, located at the top. The topic browsing is a powerful way to find articles related to a specific term, e.g. "z6" to show all the articles on the Z6 camera.



The Nikon D850

The Nikon D850 is one of the many camera models that our members are using and learning more about. It does not matter if you are using an "ancient" Nikon camera from the 1950's, one of the first digital cameras from around '00 or maybe even the latest gear - here at Nikonians we got the information, learning and discussions on all of them.

"Nikonians has been a great experience helping me to come a long way in a short time.
I love the respect that Nikonians offers to each other, which seems to adhere to an
underlying philosophy that no matter your level of expertise, we were all beginners once."
