      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 .

Marcum V825c

Recommended Posts

Any one using this new underwater camera? How does it rate with the Aqua-Vu Explorer 7?

Quite a price difference. I have one of the old Aqua-Vu with the 4" screen, and am thinking of upgrading. Need a little advice on this one, as I was very disappointed when I purchased the one that I have now.

Any help is appreciated.

The VS825C was on the market last year, as well as the VS820 (non-color) version.

The color works great in bright, clear water, where there is enough light to actually see the colors. If the water isn't clear or it's dark out (ie. evening) you won't get the color to come through to the monitor.

The sony camera and the monitor on the Marcum VS825C and VS820 are both top-of-the-line and work great. Really good picture. Like with any camera, the better the water clarity the better the viewing.

Harry,

I used the VS825C last season and am using the VS820 this year. Both units are the same except the camera. The VS820 features both IR lights and LED lights (VS825C only has LED lights)and I believe the VS820 needs less light in order to get a good picture. I'm really happy wth the VS820 so far. I used the extra money saved and went with a Mo-Pod to turn the camera, too.

I have the same set up as Dave, I use the VS820 with the Mo-Pod. It works well and I am very happy with it.

I have not seen a VS825C in the field but I don't think you would be disappoitned with either.
