Currently for Minecraft 1.7.10. No longer being updated.

  • This mod adds a camera, as found in CorridorDigital’s Photoreal, when snapped it forms a screen ahead of the player, showing the view that was just there. Kinda hard to explain.
  • The camera can be found naturally in Mineshaft Corridors chests, albeit at a very low rate. Consider yourself lucky if you find one!


  • Equip the camera. You can’t take any photos from the hip, so hit the Right mouse button to smash it into your viewpoint!
  • Hit the Left mouse button to take a picture. Freeze frames only occur if the flash is charged, though!
  • Yes, the camera animation is like Outlast’s. I based mine off the game’s.
  • Check the config file for more options (recharge time, photoreal duration etc).

Known Issues 

  • Certain graphics cards, especially old Intel cards, do not support this mod as they are tooooo old to even support basic OpenGL! If you are one of these few, I highly, strongly, very greatly advise you upgrade your system. Minecraft isn’t really built for your system’s generation!
  • Textures and model by mr_hazard (This isn’t actually an issue).


What else do I need for this mod? What version should I get? Help? Answered on the FAQ.

    I am not happy. Why? Because this mod looked amazing. And then it says it doesn’t work with old intel cards. I have an “old” intel card. I thought: “Meh it will probably still work.” Did it? No. The mod should work perfectly fine with or without an old intel card. I don’t know what OpenGL is, but its stupid that I can’t simply enjoy this mod because I don’t have oh so perfect graphics cards. I love most of your mods. I really do. They’re fun and really nice to use. But this mod doesn’t work just because I have an old intel card? I just don’t think thats right.

    I’m surprized that nobody has created a “Ghostbuster Mod” for Minecraft. In fact, no mods have been made that includes ghost busting. If you could the mod, it could be based on “The Real Ghostbusters” TV show on YouTube. [You can find reference there]
    Make sure if you can add soundtracks from the TV series also. The mod needs the weapons, capture device,Ecto-1 [needs to hold up to four players] , lots of ghosts that all have different traits, different dimensions that were based on the TV series, a New York City map with the Ghost Busters building, Egon’s inventions and the inventions that fail also, portals that appear randomly in the world [some vertical and some horizontal], Ghostbuster uniforms [different colors], furniture, ectoplasm [the particle emitted by ghosts], ectoplasm item, and ghost bosses that were based on the TV series.

      Remove your shaders mod, it’s conflicting with the picture.

    i really like this mod, but does the photo get saved in your screeshot folder?

    How come this is the only working camera mod in existence? CameraCraft is stuck on 1.4 and this one only takes a picture of what is in front of you.

    Would have been awesome to have a mod like CC but with more dark room necessities.
