How to scan QR codes with a Nintendo 3DS?

Okay, I really think I’m slightly insane. I looked for guides like this one, but I just can’t find that on my 2DS camera software.

As I can’t find such a guide for the Nintendo 2DS, I think that it uses the same software as the 3DS.

  • Can I keep downloaded games on a 3ds XL after a system delete?
  • Bought a used 3DS, can I change the Nintendo ID and keep downloaded games?
  • Do I keep pre-installed games when transferring from one 3DS to another?
  • Is the Nintendo 3DS region-locked?
  • Can I play DS games from any region on the 3DS?
  • How can I watch 3DS Nintendo Video from another country?
  • This is what guides tell me to look for in the camera software:

    But I just don’t have this button visible. This is how my camera app looks in the bottom screen:

    That parrot gives me some basic help for the camera, but there seem to be no magic to morph him into a QR code button. How to achieve this?

  • Can I use any SD card?
  • Is it possible to take screenshots on the 3DS?
  • Can I play DS games from any region on the 3DS?
  • How do I link my games in the 3DS releases of the Oracles games?
  • Are some glitches corrected on the virtual console version of old games like Pokemon red/blue/yellow
  • How can I watch 3DS Nintendo Video from another country?

    The top picture is from the camera app built in to the main menu (accessed by pressing L + R at the home screen).

    Your photo, however, is from the app “Nintendo 3DS Camera”, which offers some more advanced photography options, but apparently not the ability to scan QR codes.

    I’m not sure if you’ve figured it out already but, Don’t go to the Camera App just hold down L + R and the camera that you’re looking for will pop up, I was having this problem too.
