    I frequent Fred Miranda (http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/index.php), and Photography on the Net (http://photography-on-the.net/forum/index.php). From my experience, the other common major photo forums are Nikonians, Photo.net, Dpreview, and Sportshooter.com... I'm sure there are others, however, I am not all that familiar with them.

    Hope this helps.

    Nikon Cafe despite how busy it is, though I don't visit often

    +1 on Fred Miranda. Great photog forum but I agree with some of the moaning and groaning.

    For Canon users, POTN (Photography on the net). I am also looking for a Panasonic Users group.

    Just POTN for me. I don't have enough time, or money, to spend much time there though. :rolleyes:

    photo.net and dpreview.com. I would love to use fredmiranda.com but I need Fred Miranda to answer one of my 2 PMs. People say to PM him and he'll respond, those people are clearly the exception. ;)

    I used to go to dpreview.com up until about 2005 when I found FredMiranda.com. Lots of great members and info there as well as many professionals. Plus their B&S forum is the standard! I buy there before CL even!

    I don't really keep up with the current activity on photo.net but they have quite an extensive archive of some really deep, informative, and thought- provoking discussions. A good example of this are all the photo ethics threads I have read there.

    Also you can find some "historically significant" material there such as the first time some new techniques were used, or discussions of important events in photography as they happened, etc.

    I swear by the Nikonians website (if you use Nikon gear). I can always get my questions answered quickly and reliably. Thousands of people on that site all the time. Plus they have good discussions on non-Nikon items like tripods, filters, processing software, lighting, etc.


    I also like to read Thom Hogan's thoughts and occasionally the Luminous Landscape.

    Is Nikonians really worth the price of admission?

    I like nikond1.net and fredmiranda and dpreview.

    I subscribed back before the insurance debacle and didn't think it was especially worth-while.
