      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 .

Nikon D90 - A little help, please?

Recommended Posts

I'm a novice ... I admit it. But, we bought a Nikon D60 before a trip to Alaska last summer. When reviewing photos on the camera's LCD display, white areas are surrounded by a "boundary" and flash black to white.

What button/command did I push? And, how do I get it to stop?? I'll bet one of you pros knows the answer. Thanks for your help!

I'm not a Nikon shooter but there are a number here that can maybe get you specific buttons to push, but that sounds like the highlight overexposure warning. When this option is enabled it shows you that the highlights (bright areas) are overexposed. It is trying to tell you to adjust your exposure settings so that the "blinkies" go away.

You may or may not want to see that warning depending on what you want exposed in your shot.

When I first borrowed a friends D80 to try out I somehow hit that button and I was completely freaked out cuz I thought I broke it. Even the pictures that he had on there were flashing. Anyways, it is the highlight warning or blinkies that you are seeing. If you overexpose a scene it will flash in the blown out white areas. You can get to this on my D80 by pushing the 4-way button in the back. Pushing it to the side will toggle through the different views, like highlight warning, histogram, full screen etc.

So, to make a long story short, push that button to get out of the blinkies! Good luck

OK, so I looked at the camera (it's actually a D60) after reading some of the posts. I can change between about four different screens when reviewing the photos. They all show something a little different, but the only one that blinks is more 'full screen' than the others and doesn't have much text/other items. I thought there used to be a 'full screen' option, but maybe I'm not remembering right.

rlf, check your owner's manual. I'm not trying to dodge the question, but on these basic technical issues the OM generally answers the question well.

Its the highlight function as mentioned. It shows the areas that are blown out. When reviewing your photos press "up" on the four way direction pad. That will cycle through the different review modes.

I just took a look at my wife's D60. Slow down while you are flipping through those screens. There are two full screen options. One says highlights in the lower right corner, that is the one you are trying to get rid of. The other one lists all of the file number, type and size of file and the date. This is the screen you want. They are separated by a yellow graph that over lays the picture. Hope this helps.

    • Yes the trout was biting also, we both brought home 5      
    • After hunting Archery only for the last 10 years their is nothing I would change. It is darn frustrating but that is what makes it so fun. 
    • Hope your trout fishing was as good as your turkey hunting. Beautiful morning, beautiful bird. Congrats.
    • I wouldn't count on open water for the opener just yet. As of Friday, there was  a good 24" of solid ice yet to melt.
    •   Took a page out of sniper’s book! Had I known what would go down after I woulda let this guy walk though... I’ll get a story up later. 21.6 pounds, 9 inch beard, 3/4 inch spurs.
    •   That was quick!
    •   Ha, that's easy. Move to Florida!
    • It would be interesting to know what that bill will be if you don’t mind sharing.   I bought a used Ice Cabin several years ago and had the same issue.  The previous owner didn’t do the grease maintenance according to specs.  Once those things get behind it’s tough to correct.   I went through the whole heat it up/wiggle/pound/swear the things off both sides then did what your welding shop did.  Worked real nice after that.  Took a couple half days to complete though and thankfully I have the tools to do it.  I can’t tell you how long it will last though since I sold it not long after fixing it.     I did stress the importance of keeping up that grease to the new owner!   Glad you got yours taken care of.
    • I just run to my dealer and buy the Suzuki stuff. It's a little more pricey but I don't sweat the extra $5-$10 per year. It cost me $50 for 4L of oil and the filter. I did the lower unit in the fall so I don't remember the gear oil cost.   Mine is a 2009 DF90, so pretty similar. Make sure that when you grease all of the zerks to look in your manual. There is one that you won't see until you tilt your motor all the way up. There is also one below the shift linkage that you can't reach unless you take off the lower skirts on both sides. There's about 10-12 screws holding the skirt on both sides.   Also, be VERY careful when putting the skirt back on. I just did mine again last night and accidentally pinched an air hose near the bottom of the skirts. It cut the hose in half when I put the last screw in place!
    • picking up the house tonight from a welding shop in town, guy said they get new houses that axles seize up on, sounded like they heated it up, broke it free, sand it down, grease it, add groves and it should be set. kind of scared to see how much they're going to charge me...
