Photo Mode is a system in Genshin Impact that allows the player to take photos of their characters and the surrounding environment. It can be accessed from the Paimon Menu by default upon starting the game.

However, neither Photo Mode nor the Kamera gadget can capture images nor record video inside Domains. The player must use an external screenshot or screen recording utility. Photo Mode also cannot capture images during combat, but the Kamera may be used instead.
