      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 .

What type of pictures are you taking when you can't get a good one? What are your camera settings? If you can give us some info we can maybe help without having to get a remote. The only time I use a remote is when my shutter speeds are very slow, like around 1/2 second. You should be able to get good images without it.

A rule of thumb is that you can handhold a camera using a shutter speed that's equivelant to your focal length. For example if your using a 200mm lens you should be able to handhold down to 1/200 with good technique.

I hope we ca help.

hegs, there are a lot of things that can cause soft or blurry images, and it may have nothing to do with needing a remote shutter release.

It's best if you post an image here and let us extract the exif data so we can help you. There are quite a few things it could be, and we could all chime in with a dozen possibilities, but until we see an image and pull out the settings, it's all just guesswork.

Likely, after you post a pic you believe is blurry, we'll have questions to ask, so please post a pic and watch this thread. We'll all work together to get it figured out.

That's a good guideline. However, if your lens has IS, and it's turned on, you should be able to cut the shutter speed by at least 2 more stops. In other words, with a 200mm, you should be able to handhold down to 1/50 sec.
