      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 .

Dry Bags

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm taking a trip to Hawaii in about three works and looking to do some snorkeling and fishing. I have a cybershot that I want to take with and hopefully be able to use in/on the water. I have been looking around for a bag or case to use without having to blowdry my camera afterwards. I was at NCE today and saw one made by Aquapac, but have found others on the web also. Any reviews or recommendations?? Any help would be appreciated, I might even have a pic ortwo to post when I get back:-) Thanks,

I am more familar with DSLR housings but I think many of the same principles apply. There are some soft housings available with a polycarbinate lens, a must if you want any useable photos. They are not always known for being reliable though.

I am also sure there are a few hard shells made for your Cybershot but the cost is going to most likely be greater than the cost of the camera.

Keep in mind a flash is almost a must with most underwater work so you have that to throw in the equation as well.

Bottom line is that it can get real expensive real fast. Rentals would be another option and possibly a cheaper one as well. Dive shops would be the best place to get rental info on housings. Oh and please do post some shots when you get back!
