Nikon mirrorless teaser, voucher & inspirational photography
Hope you are having the chance to get outdoors early (and late) to use the available light for your photography.
Many Nikonians are living in areas experiencing a very hot summer right now. Make sure you are well hydrated before and during any photographic trips you undertake. In digital times we do not need to worry about keeping our film cool, but electronics do like cooler temperatures as well, so do not let your gear be in direct sunlight for too long.
If you are not a Gold member yet, you can now upgrade using the 25% voucher "summergold18", valid thru August 1st, 2018. As a Gold member you have access to individual photo critique with NEF upload, your own nikonians.org email address and your photographer's ID card among others.

If you are still on the Basic membership level and feel you're not ready for Gold yet, there is a new Silver membership with monthly billing that you can take advantage of; First three months are $9.90, fourth month onwards $3.90 per month. Just select "Monthly" as membership duration. Upgrade to Silver.
I am wishing you some great outdoor opportunities and, in between the shooting, see you in the community :-)
Products: Nikon releases teaser video on their new mirrorless camera
A new teaser video, "Travel of light", has been released by Nikon on their site showcasing the silhouette of a new, mirrorless camera. The camera has been discussed for some time, especially after this spring when CEO of Nikon Imaging Japan, Kimito Uemura, confirmed that Nikon develops the camera.
The camera can be seen in the last seconds of the video and the lens mount seems different than the regular Nikon F mount.
We discuss this camera in our mirrorless forum where we will also keep you up-to-date on all aspects of it.
Learning: Two new premium articles available; Connie Cassinetto debates RAW or JPEG and Martin Turner provides good information on composition in his latest article in the series "Shooting the $2million image".
