Nikon Z & Why bother about digital contest rules?
A lot has happened at Nikonians since last time I wrote. As you probably have read by now, Nikon has provided us photographers with two new mirrorless cameras, the new Z series. We are discussing the Nikon Z6 and Z7 in our Z cameras forum and we have a new, dedicated Z lenses forum as well.
Enjoy the available light for the rest of this week
More on learning
Connie (Via the Lens) is discussing why there are digital photography contests rules in her latest premium article and many members have commented.
Yosemite, Morning at Tunnel View by Connie Cassinetto
Nikon D800, ISO 100, 1/45 of a second at f/22, Nikon 24-120. This shot was a combination of a shot taken for the bright early morning sun and for the foreground landscape. I used Lightroom to merge them together as an HDR image and then edited as needed. The HDR was needed to keep the sun from showing as a white blob with no detail.
My dear partner Ramón (jrp) has written a new piece in his premium articles series on the seven deadly sins in photography, this time discussing "missing distractions".

Not only have we been active fixing issues in the community, such as solving the Apple Safari forum attachment/upload problem, but we have done a lot more. This has been possible thanks to all of our supporting members on paid memberships. Below are some of the highlights.
Read new messages improved
The "Read new messages" window now remembers your last settings used, it lets you select your favorite forums and remembers which messages are new across different devices and browsers between your visits. More info on "read new"
New "Follow members" feature
We have replaced our former "Friends" feature with a new "Follow members" feature, available to all members. Any of your former friends relationships have been converted to mutual follower connections. More info on followers
New gallery homepage
We have a new gallery homepage while the rest of the galleries will be re-designed later as well. Talking about galleries, we have fixed the issue with sharing your galleries with others using email, which now works fine.
Export of your data possible
You can export all of your data that you have at Nikonians, such as (1) your profile information, (2) all of your forum posts including attached images, (3) any article comments and gallery comments you might have made plus (4) all of your gallery images. The exported data is contained in a single ZIP file provided in two formats, XML and CSV. Latter format can be used for import into e.g. spreadsheets. You reach the export function under "My Profile" and "Membership" - top section "My Membership".
Setting your timezone
Something we have had for some time now, but often missed by many members it seems: You can set your timezone in "My Profile" top right corner. By doing so, we show all posts in the forums using your timezone, automatically adjusting for any daylight savings which might be relevant for your location.
