Animal Crossing Wiki

The Camera is an app the player can use to take pictures in New Horizons. The mechanic is similar to the Photo mechanic of prior games. It has multiple frames and filters for the player to use, similar to real phone cameras.

It is automatically unlocked when the player gets the NookPhone.

There are two other features: handheld mode and tripod mode. Handheld mode is ideal for first-person pictures, and anyone who notices you will do their greeting. Anyone who isn't a resident will do the Double Wave. Tripod mode is like first-person mode, but you can't move the camera, but you can be in the picture, making the player's point of view appear to be like a real tripod. These two features can be unlocked by purchasing the "Pro Camera App" for 1,500 Nook Miles from the Nook Stop at Resident Services.
