One of the big quality of life updates this game received was the full camera controls that the Wii version lacked. Depending on what controls you are using (Button or Motion) the way you control the camera differs.
|Function||Button Controls||Motion Controls|
|Reset the Camera (and turn in Link's direction)||ZL Button||ZL Button|
|Re-Center the Camera||Y Button||Y Button|
|Move the Camera||L Button
Skyward Sword gives you some options for controlling the camera. Press the + button to bring up the main menu then go to options. Here players have to option adjust motion controls (moving your switch or pro controller will move the camera when aiming), and/or invert their camera controls.
