      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!!

    •  Indeed I am pretty confident I will get one this weekend I am able to hunt fri to monday morning  
    • Yes the trout was biting also, we both brought home 5      
    • After hunting Archery only for the last 10 years their is nothing I would change. It is darn frustrating but that is what makes it so fun. 
    • Hope your trout fishing was as good as your turkey hunting. Beautiful morning, beautiful bird. Congrats.
    • I wouldn't count on open water for the opener just yet. As of Friday, there was  a good 24" of solid ice yet to melt.
    •   Took a page out of sniper’s book! Had I known what would go down after I woulda let this guy walk though... I’ll get a story up later. 21.6 pounds, 9 inch beard, 3/4 inch spurs.
    •   That was quick!
    •   Ha, that's easy. Move to Florida!
    • It would be interesting to know what that bill will be if you don’t mind sharing.   I bought a used Ice Cabin several years ago and had the same issue.  The previous owner didn’t do the grease maintenance according to specs.  Once those things get behind it’s tough to correct.   I went through the whole heat it up/wiggle/pound/swear the things off both sides then did what your welding shop did.  Worked real nice after that.  Took a couple half days to complete though and thankfully I have the tools to do it.  I can’t tell you how long it will last though since I sold it not long after fixing it.     I did stress the importance of keeping up that grease to the new owner!   Glad you got yours taken care of.
    • I just run to my dealer and buy the Suzuki stuff. It's a little more pricey but I don't sweat the extra $5-$10 per year. It cost me $50 for 4L of oil and the filter. I did the lower unit in the fall so I don't remember the gear oil cost.   Mine is a 2009 DF90, so pretty similar. Make sure that when you grease all of the zerks to look in your manual. There is one that you won't see until you tilt your motor all the way up. There is also one below the shift linkage that you can't reach unless you take off the lower skirts on both sides. There's about 10-12 screws holding the skirt on both sides.   Also, be VERY careful when putting the skirt back on. I just did mine again last night and accidentally pinched an air hose near the bottom of the skirts. It cut the hose in half when I put the last screw in place!
