Having the ability to capture images to retain as souvenirs in a setting as beautiful as Hyrule is priceless. Thankfully, Nintendo’s newest adventure has a photo mode. Check below to know how to take photos in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom – How to Take Photos
You’ll need to progress through the game to a certain point before you can get the Camera and start snapping pictures. Thankfully, this is still relatively early in your journey. Players in Lookout Landing will have a mission from Josha and Robbie that they must carry out.
Once you’ve finished the “Camera Work in the Depths” questline, which begins shortly after you unlock Lookout Landing’s Skyview Tower, Robbie will essentially give you the Camera ability and add it to your Purah Pad as a present. If you talk to Josha, she’ll send you and Robbie down into the Depths.
Meet Robbie’s assistant in the Depths, then proceed forth to activate a Lightroot by planting Brightbloom Seeds along the path. Upon reaching this milestone, the Camera will become available to you.
In Tears of the Kingdom, What Role Does the Camera Play?
Interestingly, the Camera doesn’t only shoot photos. The Hyrule Compendium, an ever-expanding encyclopedia of everything in the game, including weapons, equipment, resources, and treasure, can be accessed with it instead. Using the Camera will allow you to permanently add an item to your Hyrule Compendium. You can learn a lot about the subject of your photographs from this.
Adding to the Camera’s already impressive coolness is a feature worth mentioning. After you’ve entered an item into your Compendium, you can utilize the Camera’s sensor to look for similar items. I mean, it’s pretty useful.

Pressing and holding the L button activates the radial dial after you’ve added the Camera to your Purah Pad. Click the camera icon that appears in the top right. Here, gamers have the option of taking a selfie by pressing the X button or zooming in and out with the D-pad. If you want Link to strike a variety of stances for your pictures, you can control him with the left thumbstick.
