      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Panthrcat, I am the last person that should probably reply. I just got into the digital realm myself. I would look at some of the camera websites and see what the used cameras are going for. And I am sure you will have to go alil bit lower than what they are asking. I picked up a new 30d demo still with full warranty for just under 500. Im not sure if that was a good deal but it might help you with pricing, I hope.

good luck with sale

Sue, that whole kit could probably fetch you 550. I would first attempt to post it at 600, and see if there are any takers.

I bought an XT/Grip body only combo from Steve Foss back in September for 350 I think it was. The kit lens typically brings in 50-75 bucks and the 75-300 gets about 125 to 150.

You would be doing great to get 600 for the whole kit. I know it isn't the most desirable price, but the XT is ano considered somewhat ancient as an entry level DSLR, with the XTi, XS, XSi, and now T1i out there, lots of competition. Good luck with the sale.

thank you both very much for your help, your both helpful.. I think I'm gonna let it go for 550-600. I know it's an old relic of a thing, but the gal who is interested wants to get it for her daughter as a gift.

The XT may be a relic, but it's still a very capable camera. I don't use mine much, but it's never disappointed me for what I bought it for.

Good luck with your sale.

Very good point. I might have made it sound like it wasn't capable in my previous post. That was surely not the intention. My XT has worked well and continues to work well. I haven't used it much in the last few weeks but it still has a lens buttoned up most of the time as the second body.

I just noticed in your original post you say the 70-300. Do you have the 70-300 f4-f5.6 IS or do you have the 75-300 f4-f5.6? That will make a difference in value for sure. The IS lens is worth probably 150-200 more than the 75-300 non-IS.

and I agree, the camera is older, but still is a wonderful little camera,, it's never let me down smile

Good luck with the sale, Sue. Tom is dead on about the price. The XT is an excellent body for its purpose. Being three or four years old doesn't make it a bad camera. Some of my best photographs were taken with that body.

Anyone who can afford to buy a newer body and avoid selling their current one should consider doing so. Putting a wide angle on the XT (great image quality but somewhat slower witted than newer cameras) and a telephoto on the newer body will enable any photographer greater and faster flexibility. Some fleeting photo opportunities are lost in the few seconds it takes to change lenses.

we were in the boat a few days ago, and I was taking shots of fish we had caught, when an eagle come in close, and by the time I got my 1-4 onto my camera, the opportunity was gone........ frown I have a packsack for my gear, and really should be carrying both cameras with different lenses,, ah nuts, I don't know what to do! if I sell it, ok fine, but if I don't,, I am going to start using it I think.

thanks!!

    • never been there, have to go!!!   off 10 right???   or where?? thanks!!
    • Thanks everyone for the replies. I am planning to go with the ac/dc distribution panel with built in converter and charger. Then adding an automatic transfer switch, and an inverter. I m going to bring  the exterior generator outlet directly into a gfci outlet box. Then wiring the transfer switch as follows... To the NO(normally open) terminals I will wire either a piece of 14ga romex with a male plug wired on the other end, or just get a cord of the correct size with the plug on it, which will plug into the "hot" gfci outlet being fed by the generator. I will do the same at the NC(normally closed) terminals, which can be plugged into the inverter. Then from the transfer switch output I will wire a piece of romex with a female plug, or correct size cord with same. From the main terminals on the 110v side of the distribution panel I will wire of piece of romex or cord with a male plug on it. That can then be plugged into the female plug coming out of the transfer switch. I figure wiring it that way gives me the option of bypassing the transfer switch and plugging the distribution panel directly into the "hot" gfci outlet from the generator if the transfer switch should fail. The transfer switch should feed the output from the NO terminals as long as they have power to them. If they lose power, i.e. turning the generator off, then the NO terminal close and it switches the NC terminals open and feeds the output from those, which would be the inverter in this case.   I had been told by one of the places that sells fish house materials that I couldn't wire an inverter in with one of their WFCO panels. I knew there was a way so I thank you guys for making me think about it a little more. I think this set up will give me exactly what I'm looking for. I plan on running a Honda 2000W generator, and then two 31 series AGM batteries wired in paralell. Will run the generator during the day when convenient, but also want the ability to "run and gun" more when conditions allow without needing to set up the generator every time just to power a couple small AC items.   Anyone have any experience with the automatic transfer switches? Go Power brand seems to have good reviews. Same with distribution panels. 2 I see the most are the WFCO and the Progressive Dynamics. YettiStyle, what is it that you prefer about the Progressive Dynamics panel? Better quality? Easier connections? etc...   Thanks again to everyone!
    • Yes, if he's coming back on his own don't screw with adding something new he's not use too. 
    • And they are looking for bigger forage to bulk up going into the winter.
    • I am doing my first honey burn Thursday night, any advice. I checked my bait today and the the bear is back.
    • Between these two companies the grass is always greener on the other side.   I found that once your original contract is up with Direct TV you just need to call in yearly to get the "12 month promotion"  which brings your package down to where it should be. Every September I call to get my 1yr "promotion" which is worth $40 a month off the bill. Last year I got the $40 a month off and the NFL ticket. This year they wouldn't give me the NFL ticket, but with the $40 off it is priced right at the levels Dish would be at for a new customer.  The only complaint I have with Direct TV is that I went out and bought a King tailgater for direct tv, and then bought a cheap direct tv box off of the Internet for $50. When I had it connected over the phone they guy tried telling me that when I discontinued my service I'd have to send the box in......hey wait a min....I bought and own this I ain't sending dump back to you I OWN it.
