Taking underwater pictures with the Xperia V
Have you ever tried taking underwater shots using your Xperia V?
Although this phone is just water resistant and not fully water proof, this mighty little phone is still perfect for low pressure water like swimming pools.
A few things to take note:
1. Xperia V will still take on water inside the back plate after some time. Make sure to wipe it dry after every picture taking session.
2. The Xperia V doesn't have a dedicated camera shutter button. You can opt to shoot photos via self-timer if you don't want to install third party apps.
3. If you would like to shoot photos easier, there are apps (such as this
) that lets you shoot using the volume rocker as the camera shutter button.
4. Make sure your back plate is sealed shut and that there are no more clicks heard when you press it firmly.
And that's it! This phone has been a joy for me even though it's miles away in hardware specs from the newer models (but honestly I think the Z1 is just too overkill for my needs).
Here are a few of my underwater shot samples (warning: images are in large resolution):
