Camera Shy is a 4-Player and Duel minigame that appears in Mario Party DS. The name is a play on a term used to denote a person who is scared to get their 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. 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 on the top screen in the opponents' screens. The lens on the Touch Screen turns 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 cameras in the air and get stunned. The first player to take a shot of every opponent wins the minigame. If four minutes pass, the minigame ends in a tie.


The player can view winners' pictures at the end, after which winners do their victory dances behind pictures on the ground. If the minigame ends in a tie, all the players do their losing animations, and no pictures are seen on the ground.
