      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 .

A "what if " question....

Recommended Posts

Had a dude ask me "what if you could only have one lens for the rest of your existence,which would it be?"

For me,shooting Canon,I guess it would be their 28-300mmL. I've never used one,and not a very good rep for sharpness,but figured this would cover all the bases good as possible.

Anybody else got a theory?

Be brand specific and mm specific.

I'm already 2nd guessing my decision! crazy

Picking baby names was easier.

Boy, that's like asking if I could only drive one vehicle for the rest of my life, what would I pick?

I need the pickup for hauling firewood and lumber and going to the dump and such, but I generally drive around a smaller SUV that gets much better gas mileage. I feel I need them both.

Hmmmm, if it could be which two lenses, then I could answer. No one makes a lens that ranges from 15 to 500mm, after all. gringringrin

OK, OK, OK, when I go bombing around doing errands and such, I always keep the 70-200 f2.8L and 1.4 TC on the camera. Gives me from 70 to about 300mm, before the 1.6 crop factor is taken into account. It's a generalist setup, but on form I'd rather shoot tight than wide, so that would have to do. Does that count as one lens or two? winkwinkwink

I would have to have someone invent a 8mm to 800mm F1.4 IS USM L series cannon that sells for less than 2 grand and only weighs 6 lbs and is 5 inches long and 3 inches wide with a minumum focus distance of around 1.2 inches. There that should cover it.

No when I wake up and get off of the cloud nine, if I was limited to one lenses for ever, it would be a 28-300 L canon.

It would be a tough decision. I guess I could live without a wide angle if I had to, but a telephoto would be tough to do without. I bought a Sigma 50-500 awhile back and so far it has lived up to its reputation for being sharp but is really slow. Low light shooting is out of the question. If Sigma would increase the speed a little it would be perfect (almost) its way to heavy!
