Written by: Purah!

A Camera is a type of ancient Sheikah technology that allows you to capture the image of a person or object.

When you boot up the Camera, try to center whatever you'd like to capture by tilting the Sheikah Slate.

There should be a response on-screen if you've framed your image well. At this point, press the button to snap away.

Pictures you snap will be saved to your album. Depending on the subject, it may register in the Hyrule Compendium too.

Once the Hyrule Compendium collection is complete, you can safely consider yourself a Camera pro!
