The Camera is a tool in ARK: Survival Evolved. It can be used to take pictures.


The Camera can be crafted at the Smithy.


Photos taken can be used when painting a canvas by using "Load Paints From This Type".


Unless you have plenty of spare resources it's suggested to not build the camera as it is ridiculously expensive and has few uses before breaking.
