      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 .

AKC Confirmation Show in West Fargo last weekend.

Recommended Posts

I wanted to play with my 100-400 in a indoor setting without a flash and see how I would do. The lense is not fast enough for low light without cranking the iso which I try and not do but sometime you just have to. There were 1100+ dogs at the show from all over the country. My friends new Golden Retreiver took 2nd place in his division. Not bad for his first show. Anyway here are some pics taken handheld with my 100-400 L on my Canon XTI

Oh and for those of you that are wondering what a confirmation show is, it is pretty much a beauty pagent for dogs. Similar to the West Minster Dog show you see on TV. NO obediance or agilty or field, just looking pretty. They are judged in each breed by a single judge who checks them for things like coat, stance, teeth, color, length, etc. A lot of very expensive dogs running around.

Nice shots, Paul. Not an easy task shooting with no flash indoors with the 100-400.

That third images is oh-so-close, too. A single stop faster on the shutter speed and the dog's face would have been sharp with everything else blurred with motion.

Good stuff with that lens in those conditions. Why are there always limitations to everything? gringrin

I think you did a good job pushing it to the limit and it may come in handy some time in the future if a shot pops up somewhere unexpected in bad light, you have a little experiance to fall back on, to rush some of the settings.
