Camera Shy is a 4-player and a duel minigame that appeared during the events of the game Mario Party DS. The name is a play on the term "camera shy", which is used to denote a person who is scared to get his or her picture taken.


In the scene, the minigame sets in a field, most likely the crops of corn like in the farmlands. The players are in their corners in the playfield, where there are many paths to go in and out and for players to hide in. The players' cameras flash as the camera shows the character the player is controlling, and goes into first-person. Shortly after that, the minigame starts.


Players play in a field, holding cameras, in order to take a shot of the other opponents. When the player completes the objective for taking shots of every opponent, the player will win the mini-game.

The field is a large maze that appears to be made out of corn. Finding opponents is quite difficult due to the style of the field.

When a player takes a picture, it takes quite a while for the camera to prepare for the next shot. Also, the character's location is briefly revealed in the top screen in the opponents' screens. The lens on the touch screens turn green when an opponent is in the perfect spot for a picture. If players capture their opponents in a perfect shot, the opponents jump with their camera in the air and get stunned.

The player can view the winners' pictures at the end.
