Sony Xperia Z can be used as an underwater cam, watch it film inside a swimming pool
The best camera, they say, is the one you have with you. That’s why it’s no surprise smartphones are quickly replacing point-and-shoots, and now that we have the Sony Xperia Z the boundary is pushed towards waterproofing those devices. This will only make them better of course, and we hope the Xperia Z is one of many to come.

Right now, though, we have the first underwater video shot entirely on the Sony Xperia Z and it has the device filming some fun time in a swimming pool.

The Xperia Z is IP57 certified device. Each of the letters in the IP certification has a particular meaning with the 5 standing for “limited dust ingress protection” and the 7 for “Protected against immersion between 15cm and 1m depth” for a duration of up to 30 minutes.

That of course means the Xperia Z had no problems shooting a 3 minute video in a pool. Still, we can’t help but be impressed with the device thinking about all the great shots we missed at the beach and pool. We also have a full review of the Xperia Z, so make sure to check it out.
