Must be that the water is acting as your fingers so when only half or part submerged it just presses there, however when it's completely under it doesn't quite know where to press, so it doesn't. If that makes any sense haha. My advice. Fully submerge and either start recording before, or for pictures, use the shutter button on the side

Attached is a quick one I just took

Absolutely. I've done it loads. Only way to take pics underwater. Personally I think that's the main reason why it's there
