      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.

Dan's on the money with Canon shutter counts. If you ain't got a "1" you can't find out on your own. Only Canon tech can give you a count.

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.

    • I finally used it I was just testing it out getting the feel of things so didn't follow a recipe just cut up some Yukon gold potatoes zucchini onion and threw in a bunch of chicken breast. 1 can of cream of chicken and 2 cups of beer. Actual cook time after pressurized 12 mins. Some of the most tender chicken I have ever had.   Next day I made some jasmine rice and cubed some chicken breast and coated with sesame chicken sauce. Didn't think the sauce would steam good on its own so I put half cup of water as well. Then drained liquid when itt was done cooking and tossed them in more sauce before eating.   All in all I like it so far pretty easy stuff.
    • Well the switch closes at 115 degrees F so you will have to place it somewhere that It reaches that temp when you want it to turn on. I would say inside on the sheet metal top vent would do the trick if you wanted it hidden If not I guess just stick it on the outside of the vent hole. Or I am guessing it will close if you just stick it on the side of the heater just have the flat part of the switch flush with it I know my heater gets pretty hot pretty much anywhere on the metal basically I would take a bbq thermometer and find a place that hits 115 when you would want the fan to kick on.    As for the wire go to the hardware store and get some high temp like this its rated to 392 F https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01KCPL3GC/ref=sspa_dk_detail_2?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B01KCPL3GC&pd_rd_wg=NEE9O&pd_rd_r=NHQPZ29KWH6QT57M7M41&pd_rd_w=aiXqh   If you need something higher rated https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01KCPL3GC/ref=sspa_dk_detail_2?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B01KCPL3GC&pd_rd_wg=NEE9O&pd_rd_r=NHQPZ29KWH6QT57M7M41&pd_rd_w=aiXqh That's rated for 482 F    
    •     I guess when I made that statement I was wrongly assuming it would be much colder than that. In that case, it should be a nice October game just like a couple years ago at TCF. 
    • I went back the next day hoping the slush froze.  No such luck i guess water wont freeze at 31 below zero.  Sunday i tried moving my fishouse.  I kept breaking threw the slush. We hooked 3 widetracks together to my fishouse and still had to jerk the heck out of it to get it out. I did get a few crappies Saturday afternoon.  We picked up 26 crappies. 
    • Finally made it to morson over the weekend.  Fishing didn't go as planned it was extremely cold on Saturday. Ended up with a epic stuck Saturday morning it was 31 below zero when i found some major water . I was pulling my alumalite fishouse on the way to go crappie fishing  I had to jack fishouse out of the water and set it on blocks. I then packed the slush down with my widetrak  i even used my trail groomer to pack it down. I let it sit tell Sunday afternoon to freeze down.

    •     Ice fishing in Wisconsin can be a challenge at times. Catching walleyes is not always an easy task either. We had some crazy weather leading up to this weekend, it was -20 degrees for a solid week and a half, followed by 2-3 days of mid 30s and pushing 40 plus some rain, then we went right back down to -20 degrees.   This made for a challenge fishing tip ups this morning. I’ve got some new hole covers for my Finicky Foolers, which do work great as I’ve used them before, but unfortunately with no snow cover I made the mistake of not setting them right away and forming slush to the cover. Lesson learned. I did get a bit lucky catching that walleye as I thought it would have dropped the minnow with the line being froze.   The first fish I caught was definitely a surprise, a species I have never caught through the ice before, although I have heard they are fairly common to catch out on this lake. Still was hoping it was a giant walleye, but fun nonetheless!   With the cold we weren’t really planning on moving much. We would mark fish every 10 minutes or so but many of them were tight lipped. We did manage a couple more fish jigging, which were some good sized crappie and perch!   Overall I did end up accomplishing the goal of catching a slot walleye out here, so can’t complain.   I will be out on Petenwell Lake more times this winter!
