Sony is one of the primary names when mobile phone cameras are concerned. In fact, Sony has built a kind of aura around itself that makes any new user crave an Xperia device for a better camera output, compared to others.
The brand new Sony Xperia Z3 is just another example of that. The handset already boasts the highest dust- and waterproof ratings on a smartphone compared to other CAT-branded Android handsets that are currently there in the market.
While the handset's forte remains in the fact that it does indeed shoot underwater, we know that not many will be inclined to test the feature out in fear of actually harming the new handset. But it isn't that hard as well. Hence, here are the 5 easy steps to shoot underwater like a charm.
Enable Touch Lock
Once you are decided on what exactly you want from the camera (an image or a video), head over to the camera app settings, and enable the Touch Lock feature that's placed down below. What you can actually do is set the volume rocker as a shutter key and also enable the hardware shutter button to start video recording from a locked screen. This way it becomes much easier to grab images or videos underwater.
Getting Rid of the Water
While we mention here that you will need the Touch lock for your underwater escapades, you may ask as to what exactly is the Touch lock feature. Well, the feature turns off the touch sensor so that the water doesn't play a spoil sport while you are filming.
Using Physical Buttons
Since you have already enabled the Touch lock option, you cannot fidget around the handset's screen anymore. Instead, when underwater, make use of the physical shutter key of the Xperia Z3.
Disable Touch Lock
Once you are done shooting, you need to bring back the handset to its original form. Just swipe the slider on the screen, and the screen will get back its previous touch support.
There You Have it!
Congratulations! You have successfully shot stuff underwater and the images are ready for you to show off to your friends. Have fun bragging.
