  • Field of View: Zooms the camera in or out
  • Clive: Adds or removes Clive from the photo
  • Depth of Field: Blurs the background
  • Focal Distance: Determines whether the camera will focus on the front or the back of the photo
  • Blur: Adjusts blur strength

If you use the controller, then you can adjust your photos using six different buttons:

  • R3: Resets the photo
  • L2: Raises the camera
  • R2: Lowers the camera
  • L: Moves the camera
  • R: Rotates the camera
  • Triangle: Hides UI

When you’re satisfied with your shot, press the triangle button to hide the UI and then click on the create button on your controller to save your photo as a screenshot on your PS5.
