Photo Quest [Dragon Quest 8 3DS/ DQVIII 3DS]

About the Photo Quest

The Photo Quest is a new sidequest added for the 3DS version of Dragon Quest VIII.

To start this quest, talk to the photographer named Cameron Obscura when you first visit Port Prospect. After speaking to him, you will obtain Cameron’s Challenge Codex. This allows you to take pictures around the area. Cameron will ask you to take a picture of specific creatures or locations in the world of DQ8.

You can earn stamps by completing each mission in the Photo Quest. The number of stamps you receive depends on the difficulty of the mission.
