Parasailing with the Canon EOS 7D

by planetmitch1 Comment

Who wouldn't like to be para-sailing over a beautiful Australian coastline like in this Canon EOS 7D video? Looks like a blast! Of course, if you're not good with heights, that's a whole other issue! Christian Fitzpatrick grabbed his Canon EOS 7D and went to watch the para-sailing at Point Cartwright. Watch this video and then cruise over to Christian's blog to read more about the day and how he used his new 7D to capture it.

“I'm Christian Fitzpatrick. I'm a 27 year old boy from the Sunshine Coast of Australia. I love shooting, doesn't matter what it is… If I'm behind a camera I'm stoked!

This clip was just a bit of fun on the weekend. I was lucky enough to have the guys participate and really allow me to get in uncomfortably close. But as I always say, it's not hard to get pretty pictures when you live in a place like this! 🙂

Thanks heaps for watching, I hope you enjoy the video and if by some amazing stroke of luck you're interested in finding out more when you're done, head on over to my site,


I didn’t go into it with a plan really, I was just trying to get nice shots, enough make a quick cut and hopefully get a couple of real crackers to keep for the future. I did know that I wanted it to be pretty mellow, relaxing and convey the fun that these guys were having. My god, did it look like fun! I was so jealous watching these guys just soaring across the sky, up and down the point. It’s not cheap though, apparently you’re looking at around $8-10K to get set up. It would want to be fun for that much!

The 7D was a joy to shoot with! It didn’t overheat at all, even though it was going pretty much flat out with it for the two hours I was there and I was in full Queensland sun. I’ll write more about the camera in a later post.”

  1. Sorry to nit-pick but this is paragliding, NOT parasailing. Parasailing is when they tow you behind a boat with an over sized parachute. Paragliding is flying, parasailing is going for a ride.
