      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 .

When you grap your camera and head out for a quick walk what lens do you usually have attached.

When I'm not taking my gear pack I usually use a 18-135 nikor zoom

It really does make a difference on where I'm heading, but generally these days it's the 100-400L. I do have an 18-105 I use if I'm walking through people, etc.

It's either the Nikkor 300mm F/2.8 or the Nikkor 24-85mm f/2.8-4D AF lens (this lens also has a macro mode of 1:2 real life size). I generally have both of these along for the ride.

I live in a city so I don't walking in one doesn't hold a lot of fasination for me. Anything I would call a walk would have to be in the woods.

I'd say you are in good shape with a zoom lens of at least up to 300mm. It will give you the versatlity if something comes along that's fairly close, or if something like a unique bird is spotted at a bit more of a distance. For me, it's my 100-400mm.

The lens I would preffer to carry would is my Signa 50-500 but its so heave (over 5lbs) its hard to hand hold and get acceptable results. You have to use a tripod or monopod. It is my favorite when working from the blind.

In the woods, my Canon 30D and Canon 400 f5.6L with monopod is slung over my shoulder, and a backup body is ready in my bag with the Canon 70-200 f2.8L. When I REALLY need to be ready for anything, the 70-200 on the second body is around my neck and the 400 over my shoulder.
