F1 24 is one of the most realistic Formula 1 games to date. It has evolved the gameplay of F1 23 to try and portray real-world Formula 1 cars as realistically as possible. No matter how realistic the handling is or isn’t, we can increase our immersion by improving the realism of the camera in F1 24.

There are many camera controls available, allowing us to customise the camera settings, including position and angle, to replicate what we see on TV each race weekend closely.

In this guide, I’ll show you our recommended camera settings to replicate the realistic TV pod offset camera used in a real Formula 1 broadcast. I’ll show you our global settings if you want to use a single set of settings, and I’ll also show you adjusted settings for every car to allow you to match your favourite driver’s camera as closely as possible.

TV pod camera vs offset camera

Before I delve into the settings, it’s important to discuss which F1 24 camera is the best to race with. Many sim racers like to run with the straight-on onboard camera, which is a great option.

TV Pod camera

The TV pod camera will give you a straight view of the track ahead and it can be argued that it is the easiest to race with as you get the same view to the left and right of your car. This helps you perfect your car’s position through corners, ensuring you hit every apex.

TV Pod offset camera

The TV pod offset camera is designed to replicate the TV broadcast camera seen when watching an onboard Formula 1 feed. This positions the camera to the car’s left and slightly distorts the view. Using this camera can take a slight adjustment, especially if you are coming from the straight TV pod camera.

You may have to take a few laps to re-adjust your car’s positioning through corners, as you don’t have the same view to the left and right of your car. If you are striving for realism and immersion, this is the best F1 24 camera for you.

In this guide, I’ll be focusing entirely on the TV pod offset camera, with the goal of replicating what is seen from each car during a TV broadcast.


How to change the camera settings in F1 24 and enable car-specific settings

Let’s jump into the settings screen and see how to change the camera in F1 24. To access the camera settings, pause the game and scroll down to settings. Before going into the settings, you can quickly change your camera view using the camera setting in the menu. Ensure you have TV Pod offset selected.

You can edit your camera by navigating to the camera customisation tab in the settings. This will present you with a series of options. Disable the car-specific camera option if you want to use a single set of settings. This will let you enter the settings once and use those same settings for every car in F1 24.

F1 24 How to change camera settings

Below is a quick overview of how to change your camera settings in F1 24.

  1. Pause F1 24 while on track.
  2. Scroll to the settings menu item.
  3. Navigate to the camera customisation tab.
  4. Enable car-specific settings for individual camera settings for each car.
  5. Adjust your camera settings.
  6. Return to the game to save your settings.

This isn’t the most realistic option because every Formula 1 car mounts the onboard camera slightly differently. If you watch a few different onboard replays, you’ll see that the difference between each car can be quite large in some instances.

How to enable car-specific camera settings

F1 24 includes the option to enable different camera settings for every car. Enable the car-specific settings option. Then, you can scroll through each car using the option below.

Using this method will save your camera for each car, meaning every time you change a car in a time trial or a race, that car’s settings will be used. This gives us a completely custom camera for each team.


Realistic camera settings for every car in F1 24

Now, let’s discuss some camera settings. I am going to run through every car and match the settings as closely as possible to the real-world onboard camera for that team.

Unfortunately, in F1 24, we can only adjust the setting per car, not per driver. This can be a slight issue if you strive for absolute realism, as every driver has a slightly different camera setup.

Another problem when trying to match camera angles is that the cameras used in the real-world broadcast have a slight fisheye effect to them. This distorts the camera in a way that we can’t replicate in F1 24. Despite this, we can get pretty close.

Realistic TV pod offset global setting

For a good global TV pod offset setting for all cars, you can use any of the car-specific cameras that I have recommended. Choose your favourite angle and disable the car-specific setting to use that camera for all cars. This will apply that camera to every car in F1 24, including the FOM car that is used for My Team.
