Goddamn. If I didn't love my current lockscreen, I'd be getting one of those vertical drop pics.

Shots look amazing guys. Seeing a game that looks this good this early into the life of the console makes me really excited to think what games will look like 2~3 years from now.

Just wanting to get my entry in here, but I'm almost positive I will change to something else later.

edit: Changed my entry, although I seriously have no chance. So many amazing pics in this thread!

Sometimes you can. You have to keep hitting L3 a lot, usually right before you start it then just hope it works! It's kind of random.
I found it works 100% of the time if you have Delsin in a position where the camera collides with an object e.g. a billboard (in the district liberation missions)

Those vertical ones are too good it's almost unfair for a contest since they are using 3rd party software to make them. If the panorama ones people made aren't allowed why are these?

They're just rotated. It's not like the image itself is altered in any way. We could post them in their original, horizontal format but then everyone would have to tilt their head to properly see them, lol.

Changed my entry, btw.

That first pic pretty much sucks the life from the thread, that's the winner. Amazing stuff.

My first attempt, will probably change.

All the vertical ones are just rotated single shots. No 3rd party software is being used. Save them to your desktop and check their dimensions :)

I'm amazed at some of these shots, congrats to everyone who has entered so far. I kind of want to buy this game now for the photo mode alone...

One more week to go. Keep them coming, guys! They're amazing. We'll have to make a very tough choice.

Photomode was such a smart idea from suckerpunch.... fans like taking pics that can then be spread around to pseudo market the game....everybody wins

I genuinely hope some marketers are twirling their mustaches at this. Didn't it only take them about a week to implement it, too? If this becomes standard that'd be amazing.

I assume there was already a working form of it to get the shots for press...they probably just cleaned it up for a public release

Hope so.
Not only has it added another layer to the game both as another activity to get more play out of the game and see more of it but it really makes one appreciate the world they've created and the amount of detail that's in there. With the amount of attention this has received and sooo many incredible player shots being taken it's basically free advertising for them too.
I've always liked taking screenshots in my games (some more than others of course) but photo mode has made that much more enjoyable and it has been great to see what other peeps have managed to capture with it as well as sharing my own. It's win win really and I do hope others take on to the idea. R* and GTA V comes to mind. I spent a crazy amount of time taking pictures with the phone in that game, I would love them to add a photo mode similar to this when the inevitable next-gen version releases. Fingers crossed heh.

I guess the Share-Button is a bigger success than Sony anticipated :D
I could very well see stuff like this happening again with TheOrder and DriveClub.

A few of many FAV photos! ahhh!

Wow, crazy images in here. Here's my attempt not using any filters, I haven't really played around with them yet. If I get some time I might update.

Edit: Changed until I change my mind again...


I'm not great at taking pictures, but this is definitely my favorite that I've taken, as it actually looks a little professional, like a comic promo or something. My other shots... not so much. Half the time I forget to hide the Photo Mode HUD and don't even realize it until I'm looking at the pictures later. I'm getting better though, at least I think...
