      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 .

Got the new camera

Recommended Posts

Came in on friday. Check it out!

ooops,wait a second,

Oh ya,that's better.

Don't be bashin my elph! that sucker goes everywhere with me,and has seen alot of hard road and still brings it!

As for the 50,it's doin a blizzard type thing outside,so all I can do is shoot at the wall. I am impressed at the ISO 6400 shots! Even 1600 Raw with no noise reduction looks fabulous when the image has alot of color.

When the kids go to bed I plan on doin the micro AF adj. to all the lenses. I was pleased to see the camera will store 3 seperate AF adjustment settings for 1 lens! Example: 70-200 2.8,70-200 2.8+1.4xTC,70-200 2.8+2xTC. I didn't know it was capable of that.

Maybe tomorrow I can drive around and poke it out the window at a bird.

Ya know mariner, it's people like you that make it so darned tempting to spend money on something I don't need. Between you and Ken, I don't know who's butt I'd like to kick the hardest. whistle

I will do my best X.

Ken,I like it already! I just shot this image @ISO 12,800!

jpeg,NR std, I left the exif in it. This is direct from the camera. Sure,there is some noise,but I don't know why folks bash the 12,800 so bad. It would work in a tight pinch. I could make nice 4x6 or 5x7 maybe even 8x10's if you didn't crop very much.

The 12,800 ISO shots I have seen posted online look way worse than mine. I wonder if Canon put something else in the soup on these recent 50D's? Firmware? Who cares I guess,I'm very happy!

He's the one with the 500. He should have the most dents in his butt. gringrin

NICE! my old camera looked about the same, It went everywhere with me especially in the back compartment in my motorcycle (silly me never took the case in case of quick need)it was pretty beaten up.

The pic you took reminded me of that e bay pic where you could see the guys reflection in the mirror but he didn't have any clothes on LMAO...

Congrates MM! You are discovering why one needs to take on line reviews and people talking about the camera who don't own it with a grain of salt. I do think the latest firmware made some improvement in some of the high ISO capabilities. Have fun with the camera, I have no doubt you will enjoy it!

Have fun with the newbie, MM. Great camera. I second Dan's sentiments 100 percent. I've made some prints from the high ISO test images I shot with the 50D (using in-camera NR), and they look WAY better than when I pixel peep the images on my screen.

After reading some of those online reviewers, I'd swear they and I are using two different models of camera or something.

Looks that way to me too. I sent a couple full frame 12,800iso to a friend last night and he printed them 16x20 just for fun and he said they looked fine.

Something is going on because I have been watching the "d" review site and the folks that are buying 50's now are posting images that are making some of the early buyers scratch their heads. Ultimately,the ones scratching their heads admit to not yet updating the firmware.

It won't make anyone a better photographer,just a good tool.
