    Best camera view?

    What does everyone think is the best camera view to use? I personally like to see the whole car. Just wondering what everyone else likes.

    Cockpit, personally.

    I find in chase cam I react too slowly and rely on visually seeing the car sideways, which is often too late.

    Helmet cam is very popular (must with vr) with the look-to-apex function.

    Dash and bonnet cams are really good too. I moved from chase to bumper cam in gran turismo 5. Dash/ bonnet cam in project cars is much better.

    What tire compound were you using?
    What was your tire pressure?
    What was the track and tire temperatures?

    Hi there, the most realistic camera is the co pit view with the right FOV it transfers the best sense of speed and give you consistency in laps times.....

    I used to use chase cam all the time but in the last few years I switched over exclusively to cockpit cam.

    I don't know if it's just me but I feel like I have a better understanding of what the car is doing in cockpit view than chase cam, whenever I go back to chase I feel really disconnected from the car

    I only use it in full on arcade games like Wreckfest

    Cockpit is the only one that should be used in a sim. All other views are for arcade games, not for sims.

    Every player should be able to use the view that suits him best IMO.
    If someone can avoid crashing me because external view gives him a better spacial awareness I don't have an issue with this. Quite the opposite really.
