      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 .

I took these pics the other day. I need some tips on how to get a little sharper pic. i dont know if its how good the glass is or its my settings. The one with the fog i took at 9:32 pm. It was getting a little foggy and it looked cool. I don't know if i was shacking the camera to much or what, if i could change some setting to it get it still. I am using my Canon D30, 28-105mm.

The Shutter speed was 2 seconds, Aperture 4.0, ISO 200, Glass 28-105mm,


The Shutter speed was 1/1000, Aperture 8.0, ISO 200, Glass 28-105mm,


The Shutter speed was 1/45, Aperture 4.5, ISO 200, 105mm

Hegs, I am assuming the first shot your shutter speed was 2 seconds? You really can't expect to handhold your camera at much under 1/60s without fairly good technique. There is an old saying that you want your shutter speed to be at least equal to the focal length of your lens. So if you are using a 105mm lens like yours at the long end you would want at least 1/125s.

You can increase your shutter speed by changing your ISO. You will need a higher ISO as the light levels drop. So in this case you would want to bring that ISO up to 800 or higher to get your shutter speed up a point that is hand holdable.

The third shot would benefit as well from raising your ISO again to get your shutter speed up.
