      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 .

Basic cheap digital camera

Recommended Posts

snoozebutton

I'm looking for one just to take hunting and fishing without having to worry about it. It has to be durable, small enough to fit in your pocket, and inexpensive. I don't need to take movies with it and it doesn't necessarily need to have a zoom. I don't want to spend over $100 just in case I drop it in the lake or lose it.

So, does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks in advance!!!

I am still using my old Canon PowerShot S10.... wow, it is about 8 years old, and still going pretty strong. Dropped by kids, partially submerged, dents in the metal casing. The screen on back doesn't work anymore, after the dunking wink.gif but it still takes really good pictures. It is bulky by todays standards.

I even had to piece the shudder cover back together after a grandson gave it a good toss wink.gif but it went back together good.

But I guess that makes Canon a top recommendation by me. Look for a camera with a metal case, not plastic, for durability.

Lots of nice ones out there now, in the $150-$200 range, and the $100-$150 range seem to be plastic. I would recommend finding one with a good rechargeable battery, and get your self an extra battery and nice but small case for it.

good luck! I might have to pop for one again next year. Most likely a Canon, but heard good things about Kodak products as well.

Buy one of those disposable digital cameras. They dont take the best pictures, but they take decent one!

I saw one at sam's club today. Otherwise I would go the popular well known on line auction site. They seem to have many for sale, new and used. About 5 MPixels or so would do it.

Get a Nikon Coolpix L11. It's 6.0 MP, small and takes fairly decent photos for what it is. I got one a couple months ago for $120, but they have dropped the price to around $99 I think. You'll need an SD card as well. A 1GB will cost you about 20 bucks.

I don't like the Kodaks or HPs. IMO, they take inferior quality pictures and lack a lot of features compared to other manufactures. Nikon or Canon would be my first choices.

The Nikon is exactly what I bought to keep in the truck for pictures of property damage that's been done by others, so I don't get blamed.

Takes perfect pictures. I also made sure to get one that operates on AA batteries, so I don't have to worry about keeping it on a charger, or have one with me. If the batteries die, I just go get 2 new ones.

Go the the BIG online auction place. Type in SONY DSC-S85. Buy one of the best small digital cameras ever made. Read the reviews. Incredible little camera. wink.gif

Today Kohls has some special with cameras at $ 89 or less, check it out.

You don't need a high pixel count, a 4mp is plenty enough to take good pics, but I would get a zoom especially if you are outdoor, the deer at 50 yards will look like a small d ot in the forest if you don't zoom in.

Instead of buying a cheap camera I would take the advise of thoses above and search out a good camera at a good price. You WILL be disapointed in the pictures you get from a cheap camera. And I assume you are going to use this camera for taking fishing, hunting etc. pictures and that means all different light and weather conditions so you want a camera that can adjust to this and still take a good pic. A great pic. of that 32" walleye, priceless. Bad pic. of that same 32" walleye, heartbreaking.

Thanks for all the advice everyone, some great choices there but it's out of my hands now. I've just been informed by my wife that my daughter told her to tell me not to buy one. Wonder what that means? grin.gif

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.

      HooDoo Point, Everett Bay public landing, or the Casino are all good landings if you want to fish Big Bay. The Y-Store or  the Food and Fuel in Tower both have good bait. Cliff

      Anything from moccasin point west can be pretty spotty with Verizon. If you're on big bay it's tough to beat

      I just read an article in the paper recently, that pout fest might be relocated to Lake Bemidji in 2018. It never gave a reason why though. Anyone know anything?

      Lauren (Bubba) Sawatsky has a storage facility just north of Cook on 24.  Might give him a call. http://www.vermilionbarginginc.com/htmls/storage.html 218 666 5512

      There is a problem with the latency of satellite.  Makes loading pages slow.    I agree that a cell phone data plan/hotspot is your best bet.  I think Verizon on East end, and ATT on West end are the choices.   ATT has a tower near Cook, and on south shore of Frazier as mentioned.
