i-phone-125-SQ.jpgNikonians.org plans for technology upgrades in the near future are underway with help from the Nikonians 2014 fundraising campaign.

Our founders, J. Ramón Palacios (jrp) and Bo Stahlbrandt (bgs) will concentrate on making the site and services easily accessed by current technology, including the growing number of mobile users. This will require integrating the various areas better, such as galleries, forums, articles and blogs.
