The CameraMode StarterPlayer property sets whether cameras will be locked to first person or not when a player joins the game.

Sets the default value for Player/CameraMode for each player in the game.

The camera has two modes:

  1. First person
  2. Third person

The Enum/CameraMode Enum is used to set CameraMode, and determines when first and third person cameras should be used.


In first-person mode, the player’s camera is zoomed all the way in. Unless there is a visible GUI present with the /GuiButton/Modal property set to true, the mouse will be locked and the user’s camera will turn as the mouse moves.
First Person CameraMode


In third-person mode, the character can be seen in the camera. While in third-person mode on Roblox:

  • You may right-click and drag to rotate your camera, or use the arrow keys at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.
  • When you move your mouse, your camera does not change (unless you move the mouse to the end of the screen).
  • When you press any of the arrow keys, the user’s character will face in the corresponding arrow key’s direction.
  • You can zoom in and out freely.

Third-person is the default camera setting.
