Camera Angle in NBA 2K23

The game has multiple camera settings, and all of these are available to you at the start of the match. The game also gives you multiple pre-designed camera angles to choose from in case you do not wish to customize every camera setting separately. Here is the list of all the different pre-designed camera angles in NBA 2K23.

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

Please note that while each of these camera angles gives the players a unique perspective of the court, we would not recommend using some of these camera angles mid-match as they are specifically designed to show your replays in more style and are not comfortable to use during the match at all.

If these pre-designed camera angles do not satiate your needs, then the game also allows the players to modify each camera setting individually so hardcore players can experiment around until they are satisfied. Here is the list of all the separate camera settings that you can customize in NBA 2K23.

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

The best camera settings would be the one in which players can see the maximum amount of arena and process the most amount of information in as little time as possible so players can think more strategically. It can help the players know where their teammates and opponents are at all times.

As far as camera angles go, we would consider the 2K, High, and On-Court to be the best camera angles in the game.

Camera Angle 2K

The 2K camera angle is the default camera angle, and it can very easily be considered one of the best camera angles in the game. The developers did an outstanding job designing this and optimizing it to the point that it is considered the ideal camera setting by most players.

The 2K camera angle works perfectly for competitive matches as well and is very much deserving to be on this list. Here are the camera settings for this camera angle.

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

Camera Angle High

Alongside the 2K camera angle, High is also considered one of the traditional camera angles of the franchise. At the same time, the appeal of this camera angle depends on the type of player playing the game. We would still consider it one of the best camera settings in NBA 2K23 because it gives the players the best view of the court overall.

It allows the players to view the court from above, and thus players have the ability to view all of their free players with ease. This camera angle can also assist the player in performing three-pointers more accurately, and speaking of shooting three-pointers, consider giving our Best Shooting Badges guide a read as well. The camera settings for the High camera angle are

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

Camera Angle On-Court

Similar to the High camera angle, the appeal of the On-Court would depend on the player. This camera angle is recommended for pro players only because it lets you in closer to the action, which means that your view of the court is very limited. 

The only reason why this camera angle is on this list is that using this camera angle is similar to watching an NBA match in real life, and it is great for replays and highlights as well. The camera settings for the On-Court camera angle are 

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