Taking a Picture via headphone button

how to take a picture by pressing the headphone button when the camera is on? 

(the button by which you can 'answer' or 'reject' the call)

 

i have downloaded 'smart connect' and live camera key app,  but it doesnt seem to work.

I haven't seen that before and I doubt it will work as if you are not on a call the key will work to start playing music

You wont be able to see the app as its only accessible through smartconnect, but that's only compatible with Sony LiveSound headphones

Re: Taking a Picture via headphone button

I'm not sure as it's a product from Sony Electronics and not Sony Mobile so i don't have it. But looking at the information about it i doubt you can.

If you want to take pictures using the button on the headset you can do that with Smart Headset MH1c (same as LiveSound but compatible with Xperia SP) and this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sonyericsson.androidapp.appkey
