MSA photo mode

The Photo Mode is a mode seen in MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, MotorStorm: Apocalypse and the PSP version of MotorStorm: Arctic Edge. The Photo Mode is, as implied, a mode in which the player can take pictures of their experiences whilst playing the game.

Differences in versionsEdit

Pacific Rift's and Arctic Edge's Photo Mode is a highly simplified way of taking pictures, as the only technical options include zooming in and out, repositioning, and rotating clockwise or counter clockwise.

Apocalypse's Photo Mode is quite a bit more in depth, including options such as Depth of Field or Motion blur.
