You’ll eventually encounter a character named Igashichi Iizuka when you reach Yokohama. He’s an inventor who had his plans for a prototype camera stolen by bandits.

After you unlock the camera, you can equip it in one of the four directions on the D-pad. You can zoom in and out in the camera menu before taking a picture. Although it can be fun taking pictures of the vast landscape of the game, there are photo challenges you can participate in, too. 

The first photography missions you can do can be located on your map. You’ll notice that there are camera icons all around the map. If you go to these locations and take a picture, you’ll be rewarded with items and increase your Bond with the region.
