Waterproof Sony Xperia Shoots Underwater HD Videos

Sony unveiled its new Xperia, and it’s remarkably waterproof. The phone can stay submerged under 5 feet of water for 30 minutes of HD photo and video capture.

The new Sony camera has a generous 4.6″ touch screen with a 13-megapixel camera that can be activated prior to submersion. Once the phone is underwater the screen loses its touch enabled features, but you can snap photos with a physical button. The camera key button also works in locked mode, enabling you to easily snap photos at any wet moment. This phone is definitely a contender for Go-Pro users who likes water activities.
