Any tips for the Mario 64 camera?
There are two controls, and the right stick.

I'm not quite getting it. Some times too far, some times too close. It isn't following around me like when I turn a corner on the mountain etc.

It's just an old, old game. On of the first (if not THE FIRST) that let you control the camera as you move in 3D space. The whole reason that the N64 had "C-buttons" and the analog stick. Gaming has come a long way since then but, for this game, you just have to work with what you got. If it hasn't clicked with you yet, don't worry. It will. This game was the first time many of us ever played a 3D game after the NES and SNES and we adapted... eventually.

One thing you have to remember is that it's strictly a left-right camera, you can't tilt it up or down. It used to be controlled with four buttons, not a stick, so if you go up on the stick you'll end up going into free look mode but Mario will stop moving. I usually keep the camera in the farther perspective and hit left-right a few times to get a better angle whenever I come across a section where the automatic camera doesn't show what it should.

Yeah I had a 64. I just didn't much time with it sadly.  I remember being bad with the game then, and I'm bad with it now.  Thanks for the advices.
