Windfall Island: Picto Box Quest
Talk to the Lenzo, the photographer, check out his photos upstairs, and
show him some pictures of your own, and he will soon sign you on as an
apprentice (he will do so once he's standing behind the counter). He
will instruct you to take specific pictures. Make sure your camera
isn't full and get the following shots:
1. Snap a shot of the man in red when he sends of a love letter. During
the day, follow the man with the moustache who slowly walks down the
stairs from the upper portion of Windfall. Don't get close or he will
stop. Wait by the mailbox and take a picture of the whole guy (from head
to toes) while he is putting the letter in the box. If the letter is
already in the box, it's too late.
2. Go to the coffee shop up the stairs. Startle the lone old man in the
corner and get his surprised look on camera. You can roll into his table
or make the drop the dishes, but the easiest way is to stand in the spot
shown in the picture and toss a pot towards him. Immediately get
out your camera and take a picture of the man (don't cut his feet or head
off) while he's shaking.
3. Find the girl with the orange dress close to the stairs that lead up
to the windmill. Position yourself as shown in the pic above and wait
for a guy in green to come along. It'll take a while, don't give up.
When the two make eye contact, snap your picture.
Bring each picture to the picto store owner (one by one) and you will be
rewarded with a Joy Pendant and an apprenticeship.
Travel to Forest Haven (F-6) and look for a bright glowing firefly to the
right of the entrance to the potion shop there. Catch it in an empty
bottle and go back to Windfall.
Give it to the photographer and you will receive the Picto Box DX -- capable of color photos. The benefits of this box are manifold. First,
you can now partake in collecting pictures of characters and turning them
into statues in the hidden gallery on Dragon Roost Island. For those
characters that you can't photograph because they only appear in
cutscenes, you can go to Lenzo and buy the photos for 50 rupees each.
The legendary pictograph you can buy depends entirely on the phase of the
- Full Moon: Ganondorf
- Almost full (bottom): Great Fairy
- Half (bottom): Jabun
- Small sliver (bottom): Fairy Queen
- Almost full (top): Hyrule King
- Half (top): Laruto the Zora
- Small sliver (top): Fado
You can also pursue some photo quests involving few people around town.
For example, take a photo of the full moon and bring it (during the day)
to the young man sitting on the steps. He will give you Treasure Chart #31 as a reward.
Another easy quest: take a picture of the lady in orange near the potion
shop, then show it to her. She will reward you with Treasure Chart
Another photo quests involve the young woman in the orange dress you
photographed earlier. Talk to her and she will ask you to take a picture
of herself and show it to the gentleman in green who looked at her
(he walks in circles around the island). The next day after you have
shown him the picture, go to the coffee shop. The couple will be there
and reward you with a Piece of Heart.
Secret Room & More Photo Fun
Once you've got the windmill going, climb into a gondola and hop across to
the balcony on the second floor of the photo lab. Open the treasure chests
to get Treasure Chart #29 and a Purple Rupee (50).
Crawl through the small opening and you will bust in on Lenzo meeting
with the older lady in orange. Take a picture of them, then take this
picture to the two gossiping women. You will receive Treasure Chart #24 as a reward.
