Joy of joys, we can finally take first-person photos and selfies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons! Yes, for some of us, that means awful blurry pics up Raymond's nose, but for others, the Pro Camera App adds a wealth of possibilities.

Here's how to find, unlock, and use the Pro Camera App's Handheld function, which lets you walk around in first-person, and the Tripod function, which lets you take photos with you in them.

Animal Crossing Pro Camera App Unlock Guide

  1. Head to Resident Services
  2. Access the Nook Stop Terminal
  3. Select "Nook Miles"
  4. Find the Pro Camera App download
  5. Buy it to automatically install it on your NookPhone
  6. Press ZL to access the camera
  7. Press the "-" button to switch to Handheld Mode (you can walk around, too)
  8. Press the "-" button again to switch to Tripod Mode (which lets you get involved with the photo)
