Those of you with GT5 on PS3 know that you can take pictures of your prized cars using the built in camera tools which are almost as good as a real life SLR camera. Some of you may also know that you can export photos to your XMB and then put them onto USB. This is epic. And i think we should appreciate it by posting our best photos of our favourite cars here!

Here are some of my favourite here:








Most of them are of my beautiful Tuscan speed 6'!

Now, get your butt on GT5 and start snapping away!

Fuck, I just deleted all the stuff I'd moved on to my computer.

Seems like a worthless feature in a game. The cars look plastic.

Beautiful cars! I like the top picture of the blue car the most.
But it looks like they are photographed in a real town? huh.gif

Well not really. If you've raced hundreds of races and saved up loads of money to buy that car you've always wanted, you take pride in it and have to show them off. They may look plastic, but it is a game, not real life. It's one of the best looking racing games out too.

@demon

Yeah these places are called photo locations. You unlock them by completing the world tour. They are all 3d locations, but very realistic and polished looking environments. smile.gif

Wow, some cool pics there! If I didn't already have this game after looking here I'd have it by tomorrow. Talking about 'visuals', has anyone played this in 3D yet?
TreeFitty
Does the game look that good when playing or is it just beautiful renders for still shots?

I'd say it looks just a tad better in the 'photos' but that's my own opinion........and not of SONY or their associates, shareholders, image manipulation agents, mums, dads or vehicle manufacturers who allowed their vehicles to be used in Gran Turismo 5.

I was reading a review on gamespot or ign or somewhere that say that basically only a few of the car models are crisp and that the game itself was clumsy.

The game looks good, there is no doubt about that. The only problems I've seen is in split screen. For some reason in split screen the graphics do look a little optimized. Other than that I've not noticed any bad car models...

And the answer to TreeFitty - Yes the game looks very nice when playing, but when taking photographs it does render within the engine producing better quality reflections, diffuse light motion blur and all those visuals.

But all game developers do this to advertise their games. They render images with-in the game engine and also at crazy resolutions, so when they compress them back to 1080p/720p they have incredible anti-aliasing. this is something i learnt at Uni wink.gif Look back at some of the first GTAIV screens or RDR screens. You will notice!

Exactly. It's to be expected. I certainly expected pictures taken in game to be 1000x better looking, I just figured the engine would put most of it's power into rendering those photo's, it doesn't however take away from the game play at all. The graphics are mind blowing, I adore playing it.

@ Dup: Gorgeous TVR pics. I've got a Tamora myself, they're a real a handful but loveable.

Cutpasta from GT5 thread:

Game looks amazing. On the premium cars you can zoom right in on like a cars emblem and it still looks amazing.


And woo there are people in this topic that I thought were dead.

Good to see you're still kicking.

Here are some of my latest pics of some of my favourite cars.

Bought another of the Three Diamonds' finest - an Evolution IV GSR. Got a bit carried away with the filters on Route 5 - if anything this game looks even better at night.




Rather proud of the last shot. Should have been shot with a shorter exposure (car was doing about 90mph), but not bad.
All it needs is a MiMoCo logo and some flowery text extolling the virtues of Active Yaw Control and pow - it's a brochure.

Ooo yeah, i think a longer exposure would have been epic! Nice pic though. Hey dude why don't you start a new photography thread on the new forums:

Nice pics. The streets are so clean in games, it looks too good haha.

What do you mean 'shorter exposure'? It's a screenshot, right? Not a photograph? huh.gif

Nah, it's not screenshot or a photograph, it's essentially a render, but it's scripted to emulate a D-SLR camera in "Photo Mode".
