      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 .

Hitler rails against the Nikon D3x

Recommended Posts

I found this YouTube link on another forum, and it's a simply hilarious parody of Hitler and the new Nikon D3x.

I wonder why someone didn't do something similar when Canon screwed up on the 1D3 autofocus issue.

I've watched it three times and I'm still laughing.

Funny stuff Steve. I love the line "Screw Digital, my PC always hangs up anyways!".

It would be funnier if he was ripping on the new 50D that you guys are so in love with, but come on, $8000 for 24 megapixels. That's pretty bad.

I thought it was a link to Rockwell's site. He rips on the D3X pretty bad-I think just because of the price. I'm sure it's a great body if you have the money for it.

I was skeptical of the 50D,but after seeing Dan's SOTC shots,I'm not so worried. The new firmware must be pretty good. Shooting at iso 6400 with such a small amount of noise will be alot of fun.

I think 15mp should be plenty-I received some 16x20's today for a client that I shot with the 30D,and they were slightly upscaled and still looked unbelievable. He was so pleased he gave me an extra $50 and promised to have me do all his kids senior portraits and wants some images of his parent's farm.

This "hobby" is paying pretty good,but finding the time is not easy!

People need to remember NOT to judge anything until you see how it prints. The print shows more than a computer screen ever could.

MM, my 20x30 prints with the 20D/30D are excellent, and I've had good luck as well on a couple 30x45 prints that weren't heavy on fine detail. There's no doubt at all that, given the results from 8 Mp bodies, 15 Mp will be enough. It will be more than enough. And you are dead on about looking at prints rather than pixel peeping on screen.

IMO, we've reached and surpassed the Mp level needed for all but a certain small subset of pros who rely on DSLRs, particularly since the 21 and 24 Mp models are nudging up against medium format Mp counts.

It'll be interesting to see whether the DSLR makers continue to push Mp, or if they find another horse to race (like continued refinements in HighDef video within a DSLR body).

Mike, I'd be laughing just as loud if it was zapping Canon. Funny is funny, regardless of which brand of camera one shoots. smilesmile

Anyway, I've seen that Hitler YouTube parody three times now and I still come away laughing my butt off. I love the line about Hitler only shooting JPEG. gringringrin

    • Not sure but I do know that the GPS on the units is said to be a big drain on the battery. We checked to see if the GPS could be turned off and were told it could not.  The screen brightness on these units also has a big impact on battery life so the darker you can have the screen the better for battery life.
    • This kid knows whats good!  Unlike Smurfy!     
    • Hes kinda like the Highlander.... There can be only one
    • Frank, how does one become a certified Nils sharpener anyway? I honestly have no interest, just curious. Seems weird you are like the only one anywhere that does this. What happens when you retire? 
    • Do you guys with the newer CHIRP Models have any idea how long it will run on a full battery charge?  Never really fish in a situation where I wouldn't be able to recharge it overnight, but hopefully it could run all day without problems.
    • That seems like a great deal on the 7.  I was happy with $450 for the 5 at the Ice Show. When I was shopping for my 5 I found a few online retailers selling it for around $430 with free shipping, but they were all based in Florida and I wanted to be able to take it back to a store if there were any problems. Plus something doesn't seem right about buying ice fishing gear from a store in Florida. FWIW the prices I saw at the St. Paul Ice Show on the 5 was $450 from Reeds and Thorne Bros. $459 from Joes. Didn't check the Marine General booth.
    • Looks like a good buck to me Scoot, not many that big where I hunt in WI to be honest and I'd be hard pressed to let him walk even if I knew a bigger one might be in the area.  
    • Yes, I've found my manuals online. Maybe I'm too old school, but still would prefer an actual booklet to page through.  I've downloaded it to my phone - otherwise I would be SOL up north in many areas as I rarely get coverage up there (and I don't really complain about that - nice to get a break from technology).
    • Ya nice to have a competent backup. Just for fun I checked on Kuemper, he is putting up great numbers for the kings but they have been hot.
