      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Flash for Nikon D40

Recommended Posts

I have a scheduled family event coming up, a night Launch trip on Mil Lacs. I am thinking that I may need a flash to take some better pictures of this event. Any suggestions for me? I want one for the D40 but one that will also work on the planed upgrade to the D90.

Any flash that works with your D40 will work for your upgrade, whatever that may be. I would suggest the SB800 or SB900 first off, if they are in your budget. These are amazing flashes that will do pretty much anything you every want it to. Next to that would be the SB600 which is also a great flash, although without the power of the others. The attractive thing about the SB600 is the price. It is considerably less money than the others and will serve you very well. It all comes down to what you want to spend and if you don't want to ever worry about upgrading. If you ever want to use off camera flash when you upgrade to the D90 you really want to think about the SB800 or SB900. They are able to work with the Nikon CLS (Creative Lighting System). Off camera flash is something that you really should try. It will take your flash photography to another level.

Oh, I'm sure there are other brands out there too, but I can't comment on those.

Good Luck and have fun. Any of these will be a tremendous improvement over your pop-up flash!
