Video: Having fun off Alki can be a breeze

Though the wind stayed away from many other parts of West Seattle, it blew strongly enough off Alki for these adventurers to get in some good runs – Christopher Boffoli was there to capture it on video.

    Plenty of wind off of Lowman. Got to try out my new Sailworks Revo 8.0 sail in 17-22 mph. Awesome! Keep those north winds coming!

    Christopher,

    Very well done! I love the editing and the shots; really beautiful. 5D Mark II stuff?

    Thanks Greg. Yes, 5DM2 with the newest 24p firmware (and slightly dirty optics, unfortunately).

    this is what Scott Bourne posted about it on twitter
    If you haven’t installed EOS 5D Mark II firmware v2.0.3 don’t. There is a bug w/audio. Canon is fixing and will provide new update soon.
    The update is today 2.04

    The glitch only had to do with manual audio controls. So I hadn’t encountered any issues.

    What Lens did you use Christopher? Working on possibly selling my 40D so i can get a 7D YeeHawwwwwwwwwwww

    That was the Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8 II IS USM mounted to a 2x extender.
