The Camera is a feature that is classified as a "power" in inFAMOUS 2.
The camera can be used by Cole MacGrath in inFamous 2. While not technically a power, it is listed down as such whenever Cole can use it, under the Misc. Powers selection. The camera appears to be an old cell phone that Zeke Dunbar had modified for Cole so that it won't explode when he touches it. He utilizes it during specific missions, most of them being side missions, although it is used in one story mission. After these missions the camera cannot be used again.
It was used in a very important mission, when Cole works with Lucy Kuo to expose Joseph Bertrand using photographic evidence. Before and after that, it is used by Cole to obtain data on his enemies, and also pictures of several landmarks and places.
When selected, it is used by pressing and holding down the R2 Button on the DualShock 3 controller.
- It is possible to keep the camera for a short period after the mission ends; before the mission ends, keep the R2 button pressed down and after the mission end screen disappears. While you're still holding the R2 button, you can walk around with the camera and take pictures. Once you release the R2 button, the camera cannot be used anymore.
- While you start the mission "Exposing Bertrand" and haven't played any of the side missions about the camera, you will be given no explanation about how Cole is able to use it or how he got it.
- During the second camera mission Action Shots, Zeke states "The more we learn about our enemies, the more we can understand them, find a weakness." This is the basis of the photography missions in Sly 2 and Sly 3's Hub world missions in which Sly must stealthily take photograph's of that world's boss to learn potential weaknesses, another easter egg.
