The Codac R9000 was a type of photo camera manufactured before the Great War by the company Codac. It is a quest item in Fallout: New Vegas.


It would produce high-resolution color photographs and was sturdy enough to survive even the Great War, as it was used to photograph the ruined Bakersfield.


The Codac R9000 is a camera used to take pictures of landmarks in Fallout: New Vegas. It behaves similarly to a firearm and causes nearby non-player characters to react as though they had been fired at with a weapon when used despite being harmless.


The Codac R9000 is given by Michael Angelo at the beginning of Classic Inspiration in order to take photographs of various locations throughout the Mojave Wasteland.

  • PCPC This item may cause the Dead Money add-on to crash at the beginning, due to the script removing all items from the player inventory. Due to the camera being marked as a quest item, it cannot be removed by the script and may cause a crash. Running the above console command to revert its quest item status fixed it. [verified]
