    Monthly Assignments -- What do you think?

    The monthly assignment/challenge has been changing in how it is done over the past little while. Some changes were made on purpose and some inadvertently. One thing that changed, not necessarily on purpose, but it happened was "Entrants must use Nikon Cameras only".

    The question is: Do you want to go back to "Nikons Only Camera" or "Any Camera" may be used?

    Any other suggestions that should be considered will also be welcomed.

    Thanks

    Re: Monthly Assignments -- What do you think?

    I just went back and looked to see how the history of Nikon only being mentioned in the monthly challenges and the last time was February this year (2015). It was mentioned in the rules in months before and after. I am going to stick my neck out and say that I prefer Nikon Only because it is the Nikonites site, but I know there are those who have other cameras and there are sub-forums for other cameras on the site. Let's see what the consensus of the masses is for this. There is no wrong answer. The Monthly Assignments are, after all, for fun and hopefully an incentive to improve.

    There was a brief conversation about this and as hard as it makes me sound i feel it should be Nikon only,this is a nikon forum and we shouldn't open every thing up for none Nikon cameras or we may as well just call our selves a photography forum.

    I'm not a regular participant of the challenges but as I see it this IS a Nikon forum, primarily. We're a pretty mellow crowd when it comes to discussion about photography and gear in general, but I still think the Official Monthly/Weekly Challenges (as "official" as we get around here, anyway) should be limited to Nikon cameras only.

    As Mike points out, are we a Nikon forum, or are we a photography forum?

    nikon only. I would think non-nikon owners would belong to an appropriate forum with it's own contests.

    On the one hand, pictures are pictures, regardless of whether a cell phone, Kodak Brownie or Nikon D4 was the camera used. I like seeing people's work regardless of the equipment. The other side is that this site is a Nikon specialty site, and that is a nice, semi-unique feature of the site. I guess I'd rather that any challenge pictures would be taken with a Nikon.

    The assignment tries to be about photography, so does it really matter? Why not "Don't ask, don't tell" ? Not specifically overt instructions, but just don't mention restrictions.
