There are a few different issues related to the in game camera phone.
1. Cannot grab phone with free hand while rod is in other hand (2-handed mode).
2. Can grab phone with rod hand, but hand and rod get stuck in a weird angle until you set the rod down (by opening menu) and pick it back up.
3. Camera screen image is very blurry and pixelated, so it's hard to see if you are getting a good photo. The photos come out clear, but you must go check them to see that.
