      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 couple of misc shots

Recommended Posts

Spent the weekend at a pheasant farm, and while there were a great many photo opportunities, spent most of the time concentrating on hunting. Haven't done that for awhile. A photographer would have had a ball if I could have talked one into coming along! grin

Anyway, didn't take many shots this weekend, but here were a couple:

and a humongous 'shroom:

Had a great time!

Nice stuff, Ken. Looks like a monster amanita next to your cap. Hey, I was ready to go until a client called and decided to book me. Better to earn money than to spend it, although I know it would have been a great time.

It's been quite a few years now since I lived in central N.D. Great times with the No. 6 loads and the pheasants, not to mention the Huns, sharp-tails, ducks, geese, deer . . .

Sigh.

Love the maple leaves in the first shot and that sure is a huge mushroom in the second.

Alas, I have some pheasant photos but they wouldn't fit the criteria for the forum. Last year with three hunting, I took the second day to shoot exclusively with the camera. There were two potential camera shots today that if I'd have been carrying the 40D instead of the 870 would have been sweet. The first involved a rooster standing stock upright with my black lab about two feet behind, nose to the ground. With the drive on high should've been able to get the two on the ground and the bird at takeoff. The other was a bird the dog flushed that flew directly at me, eye level (an al servo challange no doubt). It didn't turn until it was less than ten feet away. I'd just about kill to get those back with a camera in hand. Several retrieve shots would've been great as well. Oh, well. Maybe next year!

Well I got home Saturday night and I've only shot about 50 pictures with it just fooling around. I've got a busy week this week and don't know how much I will get to play with it.

My initial impressions on the high ISO are very favorable. I love the LCD and the menu system is great. I'm liking the highlight tone priority and auto lighting optimizer, can't wait to try it out under bright sunlight and white and black uniforms.

I really want to check the autofocus system out, we will see how the week goes.
