It’s no secret how much I love surfing and I’m always on the lookout for the next bad ass surfing video. Combine that with the fact that I’m always looking for what other people are capable of doing with the Canon 7D- especially in regards to the limits of slow motion. Well, if you’re me, sooner or later you find this video- and then you find your mouth on the floor.
Behold Oahu’s famous north shore, at a blistering 1000 frames per second. Of course the 7D is not capable of filming at 1000FPS so additional software like twixtor is required to slow down the footage.
I took a few short videos of Dave Mercer’s seminar at Bass Pro Shops yesterday, and I would have taken more if I had a tripod, but I wonder if that would have been a little too much. Anyway here are two great clips from the seminar. Both videos are available in high definition 1080 thanks to my Canon 7D.
Here at Fishing Fury we’ve never been afraid to talk about our camera equipment or just how much we’ve loved every one of our Canon cameras. All of our original content from about 2004-2006 was shot entirely on two great Canon point-and-shoot cameras; the Canon Elph SD10, and the Canon PowerShot G5. I could go into an entirely new post just about how useful those two cameras are. I won’t do that now, but for those interested that covers features and galleries from Toronto Islands, Mystery Lake, La Paz, and even our first trip to the now legendary pike kingdom of Little Vermilion Lake. And it was after that trip to Little Vermilion that we realized our camera gear needed a serious upgrade to keep up with some of the things we wanted to do.
Now the Canon 7D is not the first camera you would jump up to from a regular point and shoot, both Clive and I have owned several midrange models in the Canon EOS Rebel line, and we loved those too. In fact in 2007 we returned to Little Vermilion Lake with a Canon EOS Rebel XTi, and the difference in quality really shows. The Canon 7D is the newest and most impressive addition to our long list of cameras, this new semi-pro level Canon DSLR was first announced in September of 2009 and comes with a hefty price tag of about $1700 for the body alone.
So what are some of the new pro level features of the Canon 7D that set it apart from previous models and might make it the perfect camera for the outdoor action photographers of Fishing Fury? Continue reading to find out!

My good friend Phil alerted me to this fantastic swordfish tattoo by artist Matt Adamson. It’s difficult to understand the placement of the tattoo from the photos below but it looks to me like the tops of the shoulders, as if the swordfish has gone through the neck. Matt is [...]
This exotic fish may be native to southeast asia, but would you believe there’s one place in the United States where you can catch one right along side a largemouth bass. While they’re most commonly found here in aquariums many misinformed owners don’t realize they can grow up to 40″ [...]

My XTRATUF II boots have been the footwear of choice for winter fishing this year and they’ve been fantastic on every outing. I’m sad that they’ll be put away in the next few weeks as summer approaches, but I’m very happy knowing they’re ready and waiting for next winter. When [...]
