Template:Pocket The camera is an entity and item that is capable of capturing and storing images.

Obtaining

The camera cannot be obtained by crafting or through the creative inventory; it can only be obtained by editing the inventory with third party applications.

Usage

The item itself currently doesn't do anything, instead of spawning a camera. They can only be spawned with spawn eggs and the "Take Picture" button doesn't do anything.

Trivia

  • The camera's texture underneath is rotated incorrectly.
  • Cameras take damage like other mobs, because they are entities. They are affected by knockback.
  • You can kill a camera by placing it at a lethal height. Since it is an entity, it will fall and display a death animation.
  • It is possible to spawn cameras by using an inventory editor to acquire a Spawn Egg with a damage value of 62.

History

Pocket Edition Alpha
0.1.0The camera was first found in the Pocket Edition .apk file.[1][2] To use a camera, equip it in your hand, then look in the direction you want the picture to be taken. Long-press the screen, and a camera will drop to the ground where you are standing. Step back, then press on the camera until it starts emitting smoke particles. The smoke means a picture has been taken, and the camera may disappear immediately afterwards. Cameras have infinite uses.
May 17, 2012The item ID for the camera (456) was discovered and the object was seen in-game by players for the first time.
0.2.0Original camera tripod texture removed.
0.5.0The camera is now invisible and makes the standard player damage sound.
0.7.0Added the "F1" feature (Hide GUI) making the camera obsolete.
0.8.0Camera looks like an egg in player's inventory.
0.9.0build 1The camera entity was removed. Tommaso also stated: "It doesn't mean that it's dead forever, in fact I have a lot of ideas for it! I think it will be back when have shaders, sharing and redstone."[3]
0.14.0build 1Re-added camera. It is currently unobtainable in-game.
Updated texture.
0.14.2The camera item ID changed to 498, but it cannot be used at the moment. But the entity can be spawned with a spawn egg with data value 62.
According to the language files of MCPE, the empty label that shows up whenever hovering a finger to a camera would now say "Take Picture". However, the button doesn't do anything.
0.15.0build 1The previous empty label mentioned above now displays the words "Take Picture".
The health of the camera entity is now 2♥ instead 4♥♥.

Future

At the Minecraft Pocket Edition panel at MineCon 2012, as well as one of Jbernhardsson's livestreams, it was stated that future plans include trying to have a proper use for cameras, perhaps an easier way to take screenshots and share them with others.[4] In the BlockTalk Q&A, the camera was briefly mentioned as part of a broader "sharing" theme planned for MCPE in the future.[5]
