NEWS! - Plugin Update : X-Camera v2.4.2 by StickandRudder


UPDATE News! X-Camer 2.4.2 header.jpg


StickandRudder's Studios have updated their "Camera" tool to v2.4.2. This version also covers X-Plane 12 elements for X-Camera use.


Obviously the best camera option in X-Plane, and now for X-Plane 12. X-Camera is an advanced view plugin for X-Plane . It can be used to create hundreds of unique views for the cockpit, for external aircraft views, and for views at the airport or other world locations. It offers many configurable options on a per camera basis and features a very responsive TrackIR experience with head movement limits.




  • Define up to 20 categories of cameras and up to 150 cameras per category
  • Responsive TrackIR support with head position limits
  • Many options that can be enabled or disabled per camera

  • Color coded Dynamic Mini-Control Panel Allows you to Quickly Select Any Camera
  • Numerous Commands That Can be Mapped to Your Joystick for Camera Selection and Control
  • Built-in Community Camera File Sharing




This update v2.4.2 is the first since Dec 2022, so a full year between updates and the "New Look" interface introduced in that release.


Version 2.4.2 (January 18th 2023)
  • Built with X-Plane 12 SDK which supports the Apple M1 chip when used with X-Plane 12
  • Added support to rotate the circle camera using View Axis inputs
  • Improved support for control panel window placement when multi[1]monitor configurations were using 2D panel windows (like with Real Sim Gear)
  • Fixed a bug where X-Camera was not following a scenery folder link when searching for an airport layout
  • Added support to save the state of the target reciprocal checkbox when doing a SAVE_ALL
  • Removed the unused reference to sim/flightmodel/misc/cgz_ref_to_default in order to silence the X-Plane 12 deprecated dataref warning
  • Updated X-Camera to work with the latest version of Scenic Flyer
  • Made adjustments to text to speech for X-Plane 12


The update is now available from the X-Plane.OrgStore, just log in!
