      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 .

for help again. But recently I had a quick yes or no opportunity to buy a Nikon D100 with a Nikon battery grip for $200. On impulse I bought it knowing I would like to have a spare body for a last minute offer to shoot a wedding this coming up weekend. It feels like a good deal for a back up body. The test shots I have taken seem to be acceptable. Definitely yesteryear technology but acceptable. The 180 sync speed is a killer for sure but as a back up for $200 it seemed worth it.

My question is for those of you with advanced exif data viewing capabilities, can you identify the number of shutter clicks on this camera from the image I have posted? I have included a simple shot taken while on a hike with my dog this weekend. I have a mac and can't seem to get the shutter count with either CS3 or Exif Viewer. I know there are additional capabilities with Window machines. Please let me know if there is additional info I can post that would be of help. Good luck and I am very appreciative of any response.

Here you go...

As far as I know on a Nikon the only way to tell shutter actuations is if the camera is set up for a continuous count on the file names. If that's turned off or reset you're out of luck. I've been wrong before so maybe someone else can correct me if I am.

I didn't know you could read exif data from some cameras to get a shutter actuation count. Can you do that with Canon? I had mine set to reset for the longest time, but set it to continuous a month or two ago.

Sorry to hijak, but could someone check this pic and see if you can read it from one of my images?

I am not familiar with Nikon but my EXIF readings didn't show anything resembling a shutter count. I did download a program called "Preview Extractor" specifically for Nikon but I am thinking you need the original RAW file to make it work. Give that a try.

Tom your shot has no EXIF data in it so I can't even try. The only Canon cameras that have reliable shutter count that I am aware of are the 1 series cameras. Any other and only Canon can tell you that.

I did some searching through my computer and couldn't find anything. Unfortunate cause I would love to know just how many clicks my DRebel has. I would have to say it is well over 50k. In the last month and a half it has over 3k and that is low average for me. I have had her since Thanksgiving of '03 I think.

Thanks for checking guys. I can find the total number of clicks in CS3 on my other camera. This number differs from the picture file name by about 300. I just don't have the same field available for the D100.

With a little more searching from DBL's advice regarding Preview Extractor, I found that the D100 is excluded from the cameras this info can be obtained from this software. Another site inferred the same.

I guess I'll just have to take the sellers word at around 12k. Not a big deal since I bought the camera anyway. However if the actual count was around 100k, the purchase price of $200 would seem like a not so great of a deal.

Again, thank you for your responses.

    • Fall colors are now peaking in far northwestern Wisconsin and throughout the central part of the state including the Door County area, according to the Department of Tourism's Fall Color Report. Fall colors are now past peak in about a dozen north central counties and leaves are dropping rapidlyFall colors are now peaking in Door County. Photo from Oct. 19 from atop "Old Baldy" sand dune at Whtiefish Dunes State Park.Photo Credit: DNRMuch needed rain in the last week finally spurred on the fall Lake Michigan tributary salmon runs. The chinook spawn is going strong, with a variety of baits and methods seeing success. The chinook spawn is in full swing along Door County with salmon spotted in most marinas and in many area creeks. In the Kewaunee harbor, salmon can be seen jumping regularly and have been stacking up in corners in force and numbers, and anglers are having success with both spoons and crankbaits. Fish have been so thick at times that anglers have foul-hooked more than they have had strike. The salmon spawn is also in full force in the East and West Twin, Manitowoc, Branch and Ahnapee rivers. Chinook salmon are the most common catch but a few coho are also being caught. In southern tributaries, those fishing the Sheboygan River reported most of the success from chinook and coho salmon along with a few brown trout. At Sauk Creek a few chinook were landed on flies and spoons. On the Root River were chinook the majority of anglers targeting and seeing success upstream of the steelhead facility and fishing with egg flies. .
    • $2,750 it's in darn good condition as well.
    • How much for the old one?
    • Im from N.D. and guided for many yrs from Sask to Texas. And why anyone would go to N.D and hunt  waterfowl is a mystery to me. Canada has the best waterfowl hunting  I have ever seen. You only have to drive  500 miles more. There is no posted land and no hunters. Its a waterfowlers dream.   We averaged 69 Geese a day for 15 yrs plus I never counted the  Ducks  in the decoys in the mornings. In the evening clients would sit at a slough and shoot ducks while I found a field to hunt geese in the next morning.   Pretty good chance you would shoot more bird in one day than in N.D. in a week.
    • Fish thanks for the heads up, We have it planned for next week so at least I'll Miss the MEA weekend yahoos.
    • any rub on it??   I got to try this!!
    • Picked up a new to me sled with only a 122 miles on it!  It's the same sled I already have Arctic Cat Panther 570 fan, which I will only use since I ice fish more then trail ride. Things in perfect shape the guy used it like 4 times with his family and has 120 compression on both sides and is Mint!  Not as pretty as the old Black and red one which has 3165 miles on it but just to nice to pass up. Old ones going on C/list now. 
    • I've got a small one waiting. Just trying to find time when I and the smoker will be in the same spot for enough hours! I have a good feeling that the week after Deer Hunting closes and Ice forms. The smoker will be doing a lot of catch up!!!
    • I wouldn't even bother going to NoDak before Nov 1. Too many yahoos. There's still plenty of guys up there later, but at least most of them are legitimate hunters
    • You can get longer but at a premium, and I'm not a huge fan because of the different firmness from back to bottom along with the groove makes sleeping awkward.  You could make one easy enough or modify a futon.  Find a used one and gut the hardware out to make your own that will blend in better.
