With the advancement of compact camera technology, products like the GoPro have really taken off in terms of use in sports and other action-based activities. While the iPhone has almost always had one of the best mobile cameras, its adoption in those fields has been somewhat behind. Today, however, 25-year-old Nicolas Vuignier has shared an incredible video on YouTube showcasing himself skiing down a mountain in Sweden, with all of the footage being shot on an iPhone.

As you can see, this isn’t your normal shaky-cam ski video. This looks like it was shot with something a lot more professional than the iPhone. Throughout the video, Vuignier swings his iPhone around him while skiing, giving a 360 degree view of the adventure. Slow motion footage is also integrated into the final product.

It’s unclear exactly how the video was shot, but Vuignier says a “making of” video is coming soon. In the video, you can vaguely see the outline of at least one wire that Vuignier is using to swing the iPhone around him, but it’s unclear how the phone is mounted. TNW says that the setup, which Vuignier calls Centriphone, was created with a 3D printer and the video was filmed at 240fps. Vuignier hopes to release the template he used to make his phone mount available to the public so anyone can create a video like his.

It’s definitely an amazing video, especially considering that it was shot entirely on an iPhone. Earlier this week, it was revealed that Apple is brining back its award-winning Shot on iPhone ad campaign to highlight the camera capabilities of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. The iPhone 7 is rumored to adopt a twin-camera setup that could potentially allow features like optical zoom to make their way to the iPhone, at least in the Plus model, so these should only get better.
