It’s easy to overlook Robbie in the Camera Work in the Depths mission, but finding him isn’t actually much of a problem for Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom players.
One of the first missions players will be given after reaching the surface of Hyrule is Camera Work in the Depths. The mission tasks players with jumping into a cavernous pit outside of Lookout Landing and tracking down Robbie, who unlocks the camera function in the Purah Pad.
The trouble is that plenty of players will simply run past Robbie without ever actually noticing he was there. The Depths are a treacherous place and once players venture past his location, it’s easy to get overmatched against Tears of the Kingdom’s mid-game enemies. Here’s where to find Robbie and what it entails.
How to reach the Depths
Players can reach the Depths of Hyrule by simply jumping into one of the massive holes surrounded by Gloom that are dotted around the map. In most cases, players can survive the fall by deploying the Paraglider.
For most players, the first opportunity to reach the Depths will come right outside of Lookout Landing. Its exact location on the map can be seen here:
To the south of the village is a camp of researchers looking to explore the depths. After receiving the Paraglider, players can jump into the Depths and use it to find the lone NPC Ponnick who tasks them with finding Robbie. According to Ponnick, Robbie traveled west from the hole but his exact location isn’t known. Thankfully, players won’t have to journey too far to find him.
Where to find Robbie in the Depths in Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
Players can find Robbie in the depths west of the last campfire shown by Ponnick. Robbie’s exact location on the map can be seen here:
Robbie can be found right near the Iayusus Lightroot, which is almost directly west of the Nisoij Lightroot. Robbie’s short stature and clothing let him blend into the scenery to some degree, but players can find him right near the fast travel point.
After finding Robbie, he will demand that Link snaps a photo of a nearby statue, believing that it’s of significance to Josha’s research. This gives players access to the camera function to the Purah Pad and opens up the Hyrule Compendium, giving players the ability to snap selfies and get started on the longest side quest in the game.
After snapping the photo, Robbie will head back to the village and begin talking with Josha. Players can finish Camera Work in the Depths by meeting up with them in the village. Worth noting is that finding Robbie and finishing the mission unlocks another quest in the depths that all Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom players should prioritize.
How to get the camera in Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
The camera function for the Purah Pad can be unlocked by finding Robbie during the Camera Works in the Depths sidequest. This mission can be started shortly after reaching the surface of Hyrule.
After finishing the tutorial, players can head toward Hyrule Castle to find the village of Lookout Landing. There they can find Purah, who gives them a number of main missions that introduce the Paraglider and towers. Camera Works in the Depths can be started shortly after finishing these by speaking with Josha. During this quest, players will receive the camera function for their Purah Pad, allowing them to start snapping selfies around Hyrule.
