"Mom, get the camera!"

Phasmophobia, the terrifying new co-op ghost hunting title on Steam, has plenty of nuance and tricks you may miss - perhaps understandably when fleeing from a ghost!

As part of the investigation phase, you'll need to record footage of the ghosts, so you'll need the video camera.

Here's how to find it and use it.

Where To Find The Camera

The camera is in the van that you start each investigation in, usually on the shelves or the desk.

Press E to pick it up, or X/Square on controller.

How To Place The Camera

With the camera in hand, you'll be able to place it so that it faces in the same direction that you are.

This can be a little finicky, but you'll see an indicator showing where it can be placed, and then can left-click or press A/X to rotate it.

Switch it on with right-click or RT/R2 - if you don't, you won't be able to record anything.

Finally, press F (or LT/L2) to place it.

How To Record

Once placed, positioned, and turned on, you need to trigger the camera using right-click, RT or R2.

This will begin recording, and you can watch the footage in realtime from the van where you began the level.

You'll also be able to toggle night vision on.
