Microsoft Flight Simulator is quite a show if we talk about graphic quality. The level of realism is so high that it can sometimes be confused with reality, as long as you have a PC that can run the game in high or ultra quality. In terms of gameplay and controls, the studio that made the game has done everything possible to bring the game closer to all types of players.
If you are one of the pilots who prefer to enjoy the landscape, using the external camera, you landed in the right place because in this article we will explain how to change the camera view in Microsoft Flight Simulator (inclusive how to play in third person). The process is the same. In addition, you can change the type of zoom and activate the Smartcam to see the closest points of interest.
How to change the camera view in Microsoft Flight Simulator
While you can change the view with keyboard shortcuts, there are so many ways that it is easy to forget which keys we can use to change the camera view. If you want to play it safe instead of testing keys, then you have to do the following. Access the menu that appears when you move the mouse pointer over the top of the screen. Next, you have to click on the Camera.
In the Camera menu, there are three available modes: cockpit view, external view, and showcase views. You just have to choose one of the three and that’s it. By default the zoom type is manual. Here I recommend you go testing until you find the camera that you like the most. At any time you can leave the camera that came by default by clicking on Reset position.
