Have you heard of 4K? What about 48K... Check it out here

So Sony are out pioneering once again with another WORLDS FIRST. This time they have managed to harness the power of 12 Xperia Z5 Smartphones & 8 well known instagrammers to put together this unique video.

All this took place at the Rise Ski & Snowboard Festival in Grenoble, home to the largest skiable glacier in Europe. 

The Xperia Z5 has many attributes but SONY put a key focus on its Camera tech. With super fast auto focus, X5 Digital zoom at the disposal, the well known instagrammers put the Z5 to the test...Not sure why I wasn't invited though.

Instagrammers who took part included - @akusepp, @le_petit_francais,@christianmcld, @mesvoyagesaparis, @s_timmung,@ahtlaqdmm, @peppyhere and @berriestagram. 

So here it is the Worlds First 48K 360 video. There is only one problem. YouTube will not allow a video upload of 48K. Which means SONY had no option other than to upload in 4K, which is far more than ok by todays standards. I'm sure one day when 48K becomes the norm we will see this video in its entirety. For now check this out and don't forget to use the little arrows in the top corner to look around .

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.
