Hi,
Is there any way to lock screen when camera is on? I would like to make some underwater pictures, but the problem is that when touchscreen is wet, it presses random things... any way to avoid that?
Best regards,
FlashT

One thing to keep in mind is that the touchscreen only responds to random touches when it is partially under water. Once fully submerged there is no difference in conduction anymore and nothing is pressed - not by the water, nor by touch input. If you press the camera button half-way to focus and then submerge it, you're good to go.

Again, once it's fully submerged, random presses won't occur (that often) anymore. If you submerge your phone quickly, you also lower the likelyhood of random presses. I hope this helps you, and hopefully others who didn't know this as well

@technostein Yes, but it doesn't lock screen... and Xperia has it's dedicated button for photo, so it is basically usless
