* In ''EternalSonata'', Beat's ability to take photos of monsters is the best way to make money throughout most of the game. That is, if you can learn the game's crazy standards for what constitutes as a good picture.

* The whole premise of ''FatalFrame'' (''Project Zero'' in Japan) and its sequels is to take photographs of ghosts in order to seal them in your special camera. However, you also get bonuses for non-dangerous incidental ghosts.
* ''SilentHillShatteredMemories'' - taking pictures with the protagonist's phone cam will reveal a number of secrets...[[spoiler: including the UFO Ending]].
* In ''EternalDarkness'', Peter is a reporter, but you can't take pictures. You can, however, use his camera flash to stun enemies.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker''. Just getting the picto box, as well as upgrading it for color features, spans a sidequest on its own: It all starts with exploring the narrow caves behind Tingle's prison, then showing the picto box to Lenzo, then completing three snap shot tasks, then finding a rainbow-colored firefly in Forest Haven ''and then'' giving it to Lenzo. After getting the color features, there's an elaborate {{Sidequest}} that involves taking pictures of nearly every character in the game (notably, one picture/statue can only be found if you have a UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance and a cable to link it to your UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube, allowing you to complete ''another'' sidequest that spans five of the game's dungeons). Then there's the various sidequests in Windfall Island that involve giving pictures to certain characters. Also, in ''The Wind Waker HD'', the Picto Box has the additional function of being able to post photos on Miiverse, even self-shots. This also helps to eliminate the risk of [[LostForever losing permanently figurines of characters or boss creatures who make limited appearances]]. The remake also allows the player to store four times as many pictures as before, which increases the pacing of the figurine collection.

* ''VideoGame/{{Myst}} IV: Revelation'' has a camera feature that can be used to not only capture puzzle solutions, but to also capture pictures of stuff that you think is pretty. Taking lots of photos is also one way to variate and somewhat personalize an event that happens later on in the game.

* The ''Videogame/ForzaMotorsport'' series likewise allows users to freeze replays or singleplayer races to take pictures with a free-floating camera that allows the user to adjust shutter speed, aperture, and other settings. ''Forza 4'' has a screenshot setting so hardcore that its rendered separately on the game's servers and then uploaded straight to the user's profile page in all its 3840x2160 30mb BMP glory.

* ''VideoGame/FreezeME'' plays with this, since the main character does use a camera to take pictures of things, but instead of collecting photographs, she uses this power to freeze things in place.

* ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Melee'' had a Camera Mode that allowed players to take in-game photographs of their battles from various angles. And in case you wondering, yes you can do ''[[PantyShot that]]'', too.
