Like the title says, please vote on what camera view you use the most when playing!

Also, if you've got feedback about the cameras, including suggestions, please post them here.

I usually use the Far Chase Cam, but I also really like the "Bumper" and "Spoiler" cams.

i tend to use medium / far camera in general, because i like to see whats going on ahead and behind me while racing. one of the most important things is the vehicle itself should not block the front view when using medium / far camera (and trust me, i saw several racing games that have this issue. :x )

:idea: As suggestion: maybe implement camera view settings in game options, including all of them mentioned in the poll (if it's not too complicated to do that). So every player can pick and save preferences in game setting his favourite camera view.

Furthest one. Right now I find it to work pretty darn great. It stick to the center of the car in horizontal movement and only shows the side of the car when you're in an actual slide, which is good. Though lack of any actual drifting action makes it hard to tell if there's anything to improve in that aspect. I'll be sure to point that out though if it will become an issue. #ChaseCamWarrior

As to vertical movement it's hard to tell right now, since when it comes to vertical we usually just jump xD But to make it easier seeing when driving uphill/downhill I suggest taking a look at how chase camera works in that regard in DiRT Rally. In that single thing, Codemasters have outdone themselves. Rest about the chase camera is a bit wonky though.

Also, when we're driving upside down, could there be an option in the HUD settings to "swap" the positions of the pick-ups? It may not be an issue for some people, but I often get the confused which pick-up is which at that point. By swap I mean the left pick-up swaps positions on the HUD with the right one only when we're driving upside down. May seem slightly off-topic, but this is an issue for me only when I drive with chase camera. When I tried with bumper, no such problem. Therefore an option in the settings for those that want it would be most preferable.

Giving an ability for everyone to the camera to their needs, something like in Rocket League, would probably be best IMO. No one could even moan about camera at that point :D

I like the degree of liberty we have currently in the choice of cam setting.

The one I use most is the far and raised one (to admire the cars), but I do change at times to modify my perception of speed.

I disagree with above in that we do have a slight drift already implemented and I think the camera captures it nicely.

Only remark would be the transition effect when flipping (just stick the cam to the roll movement ?) , but I got used to and like the camera effects already, so it's a "no recommandation" here as far as I can tell.

Will come back if anything pops to mind.

Bumper cam gives you the BEST sensation of speed!

^ this

The only thing missing from the bumper cam is a HUD element telling you if your shield is active or not

Right on.

I used to use the look back button because up until some patches ago you actually saw your shield if it was up. Now you don't do that anymore.

I use both chase cam (I think medium) and hood cam. You can't beat hood/bumper cam if you're going for maximum speed or driving on a tricky track, it gives you a much better idea of what's going on with where the car is going than a chase cam does. It'd be awesome if there was a cockpit camera, too.

+1 to shield indicator for bumper cam. Meanwhile you could use hood cam, because it still allows to see the shield when you look back while using it.
