How to clamp camera rotation in unity?

Clamps the given value between the given minimum float and maximum float values. Returns the given value if it is within the min and max range.

Returns the min value if the given float value is less than the min. Returns the max value if the given value is greater than the max value. Use Clamp to restrict a value to a range that is defined by the min and max values.

Basically what we do is, set the minimum and maximum rotation values before setting up actual Euler angles. Don’t forget to assign a new instance in the rotation when you do clamping with camera rotation

Tip: You can also use camera controller assets like orbit cam.

Rotate camera C# script with clamping

using UnityEngine;

public class RotateCamera : MonoBehaviour
    public float speedV = 2.0f;
    public float speedH = 2.0f;

    private float rotationX = 0.0f;
    private float rotationY = 0.0f;

    private float minValue = -30f;
    private float maxValue = 30f;

    // Update is called once per frame
    void Update()
        rotationY += speedV * Input.GetAxis("Mouse X");
        rotationX -= speedH * Input.GetAxis("Mouse Y");

        rotationX = Mathf.Clamp(rotationX, minValue, maxValue);

        transform.eulerAngles = new Vector3(rotationX, rotationY, 0);
