A premium smartphone is nothing without a great camera to match. It’s easy enough to talk about the different sensors and lenses every time a new device launches. You can even show off a barrage of sample photos and videos. However, OnePlus is taking its photography game a step further to show you just how far the OnePlus 9 camera can go.

We’ve talked about the partnership between OnePlus and Hasselblad to no end, but now you can see how to put it to good use. You’ll find a class-leading ultra-wide camera and excellent 8K video quality, and now it’s time to leave terra firma behind.

The sky is the limit

OnePlus continues to find new ways to show off the OnePlus 9 series camera, and now it’s launching an “Extreme Captures” series. Essentially, it’s putting the latest flagship camera through a set of intense scenarios to show you how you can capture your adventures.

Up first on OnePlus’ list of daredevil feats is skydiving. For years, you would have needed a GoPro or another premium action camera to capture your high-flying experiences, but those days are a thing of the past. The OnePlus 9 Pro captures crisp 4K 120fps video, and it looks even better in slow motion. Did we mention that the video was taken in a 3,000-foot free fall?

It’s alright if you don’t like heights yourself so much, as the OnePlus 9 Pro makes a great drone companion too. Even though the drone isn’t always stable, the camera can capture an impressively smooth video thanks to OnePlus’ Super Stable mode. That makes it even easier to have an eye in the sky, even if your feet are firmly on the ground.

Greater adventures to come

If you’re itching for your own chance to put the OnePlus 9 series through its paces, OnePlus is giving away adventure kits to help you get started. It has worked with Armor X to provide handy mounting accessories for just about any scenario. Think of the impressive system of GoPro accessories, but scale it up to fit your phone perfectly.

Of course, skydiving is only the first stop in the OnePlus Extreme Captures series. We still have surfing in Hawaii and a trip to Alaska with a marine biologist to look forward to. The best way to keep up with all of the action is to give @OnePlus_USA a follow on Instagram. That way, you can find out where OnePlus is off for even more extreme adventures and try your luck at an exclusive giveaway.

If you’re ready to put the OnePlus 9 series through your own set of adventures, T-Mobile is the place to be. Right now, you can save 50% on a OnePlus 9 when you add a new line. The OnePlus Pro is $375 off, too, in case you want some extra power.

Those who are feeling lucky can try their hand at OnePlus USA’s 100-phone giveaway over on Instagram. Grab your entry right here.
