Earlier this month we headed out to Rise Ski & Snowboard Festival in Grenoble, home to the largest skiable glacier in Europe, with eight of Europe’s best Instagrammers – to see what would happen when the world’s best camera in a smartphone* met Les Deux Alpes.

Our groP.A Chilling 2 copy 2up included @akusepp, @le_petit_francais, @christianmcld, @mesvoyagesaparis, @s_timmung, @ahtlaqdmm, @peppyhere and @berriestagram – if you’re on Instagram, be sure to stop by their profiles and don’t leave without hitting “Follow”.

 We asked each to stretch Xperia Z5’s camera capability to its limits across a number of challenges – including fast autofocus** to capture movement, action and snow spray on the slopes, 5x clear image zoom for beautiful backdrops and low-light technology for the festival after hours – as you’ll see, the images speak for themselves.

 We also created a world first piece of video content using nothing less than: 12x Xperia Z5 Compacts and a custom 3D printed rig – but stay tuned for more on that in the New Year.

To view more images shot on Xperia Z5, simply search Instagram for #Xperia & #XperiaZ5.
