      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 .

Camera type

Recommended Posts

I always wanted to get a camera for those special pictures that come up that a typical camera can not catch. Just wondering what type or brands that you would recommend ? Not sure as to what shutter speed is my biggest question. Do not want to get to deep but some helpful hints for someone that wants to get started . Obviously I would not be able to afford top of the line camera but just something in the middle. So much to choose from but do not have a clue where to start. Any information would be greatly appreciated. I Love the pics in this forum a bunch of great pics! Hopefully someday I can add to them.

I've had good luck with my Canon Rebel XT and XTi. You can get a used XT for around $300 WITH LENS if you know where to look, IE online classified and places like National Camera Exchange.

Same can be said for a Nikon D40. Both are older digital SLRs but you can get some remarkable shots with either, and they are perfect for the beginner.

And there are just some of us who can't afford a Canon 5D Mark II with 3 L series lenses or a Nikon D700 :P

Canon or Nikon are both very good brands if you ever think about seriously getting into photography. Both offer a larger selection of lenses then Sony, Olympus, etc do for their SLRs; as they can both use film lenses; which for someone with a budget, finding a used film lens for my Canon for under $100 is allways a nice little gem then having to spend $500 on one that is new.

What I would do is this: go to your local camera store, and ask them to let you play with both Nikon and Canon DSLRs; either the Dxx or Canon Rebel series. Both of these are great cameras, and are easy to use.

Find out which one both fits your budget and feels best to YOU by doing this. Everyone can say that one camera is better then another; but it also comes down to your own preferences on how easy you feel the camera is to use, or how comfortable the controls are.
