Different kinds of camera angles can be saved using tracking shots. Players can easily switch between the shots to decide which one is better.
Focal length allows players to zoom with great abilities in and out of a frame. This comes particularly in handy when there are close up shots or wide shots required.
Using roll, players can adjust the angle at which they take a screenshot.
Depth of field
The depth of field can be adjusted to provide a bokeh (blurry) effect around objects, just like the DSLRs out there. As players move the adjustments for this feature, an object that is in the background, foreground, or middle-ground will appear blurred out.
Focusing distance sets the distance at which the camera will focus on the screen. Players can adjust this depending on how much of the environment they want to capture. This feature works independently in the depth of the field.
Time of day
Time of day feature allows players to set the time of the screenshot down to the very last second. This feature will change the shadows, Sun position, Moon positions, and how the light will appear on different objects.
The weather feature can change the weather of the screenshot. Players can have a typical sunny, dry day with clear blue skies to a thunderous dim-lit foggy scene.
The animated environment is enabled by default in photo mode, and it allows the leaves and grass to move about in the screenshot. This can be toggled off from the settings menu.
Players can change the way Jin’s face appears in the screenshot with this feature. Jin can be angry, sad, happy, or even dead.
Players can opt to have Jin’s mask or helmet present during a screenshot.
Cinema bars will add black bars in the header and footer portion of the screenshot, giving it a cinema-theatre look.
The stamp will add the signature Sucker Punch – Ghost of Tsushima stamp in the middle of the screenshot. It will appear in English and Japanese.
The music feature will allow players to create short video clips of the current screen, by adding various OST of Ghost of Tsushima as background music.
Players can apply a certain number of filters to the current screen based on their preference. The number of filters is limited. However, they do offer different coloring schemes.
Colour grading Intensity
Colour grading intensity allows players to tweak the intensity of a selected color grading feature. All the filters can either be turned down or up based on player preference.
Exposure bias allows players to set how bright or dim they want their screenshot to be. Turning it all the way up will completely white-wash what’s on the screen and vice-versa.
Players can opt to set particles as on/off in the dynamic environment. These particles are all the little things that move about within the screen, such as leaves, bugs, butterflies, flowers, or fireflies. By turning them off in the dynamic environment, all the particles in the scene will freeze.
Particle Intensity allows players to define how many particles they want their screenshot to capture. By turning this feature up, will cover the screen with as many relevant particles as possible. Turning this feature down will remove all particles from the screen.
Wind speed allows players to adjust the rate of wind speed in the environment. This feature only works if the dynamic environment is enabled. Players can capture Jin’s cape, trees, leaves, and other movable objects that react to the wind’s speed.
Wind direction allows players to change where the wind blows. Players can control where the particles and other movable objects will point to once there is sufficient wind speed.
Players can enhance the cloud presence on the screen. However, this feature may not work as effectively with screens where they are little clouds, to begin with.
Players can also adjust the frame of their screenshot to move it upwards or downwards by moving the left or right trigger. To reset the current tab, players can press on the square key on their controller.
