Choosing the right camera angle in NBA 2K23 is pivotal to your success. Unlike other genres, sports games like NBA 2K23 can become challenging to play if you have limited vision. Some of you might even feel nauseous with the amount of movement and action packed into a single frame.

The right camera angle for you will make it easier to make quick calls, determine strategies on the fly, and lead the match better on the court. This guide will tell you how to change camera angles and choose the best camera angle settings in NBA 2K23.

How to change camera angles and settings in NBA 2K23

NBA 2K23 features multiple camera angles and all of them are available to use at the start of a match.

Pause the game at any point and then head into Camera Options to cycle between all of the camera angles. Each angle gives the match a new perspective. However, do note that not all of them are comfortable to play in. Some of them are just there to give your replays and highlights more style.

Camera angles to choose from:

  • Rail
  • Side
  • Skybox
  • Swivel
  • 2K
  • Broadcast
  • High
  • On-Court
  • Nosebleed

There are also several camera settings available that you can tweak or adjust for each camera angle. You can play around with the settings until you are satisfied. If not, you can always press the Reset to Default option to start from scratch.

Camera settings to customize:

  • Zoom
  • Height
  • Key Zoom
  • Rev Angle
  • Auto Flip
  • Fix Height
  • Flip Style

Best camera angles and settings

The best camera angle is the one where you have the greatest advantage in terms of visibility, which means you should be able to view the entire court (or most of the court) all at once. This will let you know where your players are for quick passes and where the opponents are to push past their guards.

Therefore, the best camera angles in NBA 2K23 are 2K and High with Courtside and Side coming in as close seconds. Below are a few camera presets for each of the camera angles that you can use to make your gameplay smoother in both the MyCareer mode and MyTeam mode. For all angles, we recommend turning off the shake as this can be a nuisance during free throws.

Note that there is a bug in the game which prevents the camera settings from being saved. This causes your settings to revert back to default at the start of every match.

Camera Angle: 2K

2K is more or less your default camera angle in NBA 2K23. It is perfect for the job, especially if you are looking to be competitive in online matches.

Zoom: 1
Height: 4
Key Zoom: Off
Rev Angle: Off
Auto Flip: Off
Fix Height: On
Flip Style: Spin

Camera Angle: High

Playing high is going to give you the best view of all of your open players. You are likely to get better at pushing the ball through the center while watching the court from above. Your three-pointers are also something that relies on good vision.

Zoom: 1
Height: 1
Key Zoom: Off
Rev Angle: Off
Auto Flip: Off
Fix Height: On
Flip Style: Spin

Camera Angle: Courtside

Playing courtside is not going to be easy, but it does allow you to be closer to the action. Courtside is also going to feel like you are watching a real-life NBA match on your screen.

Zoom: 1
Height: 1
Key Zoom: Off
Rev Angle: Off
Auto Flip: N/A
Fix Height: N/A
Flip Style: N/A

Camera Angle: Side

Similar to courtside, playing on side might prove challenging but you will feel an adrenaline rush when pushing offense. Not to mention that rebounding on this camera angle feels incredibly stressful.

Zoom: 1
Height: 1
Key Zoom: Off
Rev Angle: Off
Auto Flip: N/A
Fix Height: N/A
Flip Style: N/A

How to change camera angles in the park and the city

NBA 2K23 could have been provided a bit more clarity on changing camera angles when playing in the park or roaming the City. Either way, you can change your camera angles at any point by pressing your D-Pad in the right direction. It will bring up the camera selector.

In certain cases, you may encounter a camera bug in NBA 2K23, where your camera gets stuck close to your player making it difficult for you to view the court in its entirety.

To fix this bug, open the options menu and pick a different camera angle. Then change back to your desired angle and you should be good to go.
