You know that crappy digital camera from bon voyage, which isn’t even digital since you have to send your photos off to develop them? Yeah that camera.

I replaced this sad blob of pixels with the (very!) pretty analogue camera from the paparazzi outfit (from seasons). EA even made a separate texture for the analogue camera so I’m surprised they didn’t use it.

There are two versions to choose from and bon voyage is required for both. If you have seasons installed, you can choose to use the repo’d default (it’s repositoried to the uubodyjournalistcamera-black texture). If you don’t have seasons installed (or for some reason just don’t want the repositoried version) choose the bon voyage file.

Both files have been compressed to reduce file size, and remember you can only have one default for the digital camera in your downloads folder at a time. If you run into any issues, let me know!

And if you’re interested, sherry shared a deco version of this camera here (click on the second image to download).

Edit: Meduza has updated their custom cellphone mod to include my default as a custom camera! :-D thank you!

Known Issue: when sims use the camera, for some reason it “flips” in their hand first. This has nothing to do with my default, it’s just the way EA.. decided to design the camera interaction I guess haha? If I knew how to edit this, I’d fix it, but unfortunately I don’t know :-( here is how it looks - and sorry for the very bad gif, I was lazy:

Neat! I also did this for my own purposes, but your version is way better, because yours is repo'd and everything! *puts this one in my game instead* Great job!

This is really nice (as usual ). Thanks!
It looks like update for cellphone (and camera) mod will be bigger than I originally intended.
