      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.

thanks again,, the lens is a low end 70-300.. no 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!!

    • You heard wrong and he left on his own, multiple times....
    • I have been adding a little equipment to my butchering hobby every year and this year I am going to add a bandsaw to the mix.  On the WWW there are a bunch of them in the 280-450 range that all look like rebranded clones of each other.    Then, from there it looks like the next jump is the Rikon/grizzly model that has bearing guides, a better blade and it looks like a better fit and finish for 650- 800 depending on the retailer. Does anyone have any experience with either of these types or anything similar?  I'm not going to spend the dollars to get a commercial model.     
    • Ya its been a long day. I don't know if I'm a puss or what but I havent even been able to eat today. Never lost a deer before. Hopefully never again. Worst part is I don't know what went wrong I would make exact same shot again.
    • Awesome thank you  
    • Sorry Charlie.  Way I heard it, the lords didn't like him having a plug for his sight in his .sig so he moved on, like many of the cooking folks did to another place.   I am there too, so come on over....  Just leave the politics here.  
    • Gee Dave, you are sure a  believer in the overprotective government.   I bet you cook all your eggs hard, and your chicken to 165.  You need to read up on pasteurization... It's a time and temperature thing. 
    • Reinhardt's skin was about as thick as sausage casing, it was after Obama got re-elected and the realization that he couldn't howl from his deer stand after Romney's victory. That's when he left, so it's been a while. He was a good dude with a lot of experience in a variety of things. A lot of folks are missed around these parts.  
    • Yeah, I think the first time was after too many people made fun of Michelle Bachmann.  Too bad. He had some great old school knowledge of sausages and butchering in general. 
    • I thought he just got mad and took his ball and went home? Didn't he do that at least a time or 2? I do miss Reinhardt though....
    • Check his web sight which caused him to get expelled from HSO many moons ago.... It has all his recipes and info on it.   www dot sausage heaven outdoors dot com   with a http:// and some deleted spaces you will be golden.
