Honkai Star Rail characters can strike various poses while taking photos.

A variety of filters can be applied to your snaps, and you can alter the intensity of these effects to match your preferences, the same as what you’d do on platforms such as Instagram. The game lets you switch between front and rear cameras, and you can zoom in for a detailed shot, or zoom out to get a broader view of the scenery.
