THE ROLLER COASTER RAIL - Featuring the Xperia Z5 5X Zoom

Ok so the great thing about roller coasters are that you're buckled in with lots of padding and safety measures in place. This stunt has none of that and Kriss flies off the rail and does a back flip. Now you would't want to happen a theme park.

Xperia Z5 4k BMX - Kaleidoscope Video

So if your into xtreme sports. You might be extremely interested in an extreme sport shot on an Xperia Z5 in 4K. By the expert film makers from Red Bull Media House. 

BMX Legend Kriss Kyle takes center stage at Glascow's Kaleidoscope arena. With the combination of the Xperia Z5, Red Bull and Kriss Kyle. We can fully expect to see an amazingly unique 4K video series. Which is due to be released 10th November 2015. Take a look at the official trailer below.

So... some say that Sony's camera technology is the best in the business, and that Chris Kyle pulls of more death defying tricks than David Blaine on a daily basis... and that Red Bull gave this video and Chris Kyle wings.


In this exclusive videos series Kriss gears up to perform 5 of the world's first ever tricks. All shot on a device that can capture and store 4k photos and videos, and fits right there in your pocket.

This video series will be called Kaleidoscope because it's colourful and moving. Sony would like you to be moved, but that's not what I meant. In this video Kriss performs death defying tricks in the Glasgow Kaleidoscope arena with actual moving parts.

Anyway moving on. If you ask me.The Kaleidoscope in Glascow looks like it might be one of the finest extreme sports venues known to man.

Kriss Kyle commented: “Kaleidoscope has really required me to take my riding up a level and ended up being the biggest challenge I have ever faced, so I wanted to capture every single moment on camera. Throughout the experience, I was able to look back at my riding and see exactly how it looked.  The Xperia Z5 Premium has a truly amazing 4K screen, which meant I could watch each second in the highest quality and see the finer details of every line ridden.”

Director Ben Scott: “I have been on film sets all of my career, and have seen most things, but nothing really prepares you for an athlete coming to you in the middle of a shooting day and saying, ‘you know that 38 foot drop combo, well, I thought I might do it backwards.’ Now that’s scary.”

I don't know about you but I am super excited to see just how good the Z5 camera is, and just how good Kriss Kyle is at dropping 38feet backwards without breaking his neck.
