In Zora's Domain there is a Zora named Laflat who offers the sidequest Lynel Safari. The quest involves taking a photo of the Lynel on top of Polymous Mountain to earn a set of Zora Greaves.

However, after finishing the main Zora quest to defeat Divine Beast Vah Ruta, Lafrat won't give me her sidequest. Any time I talk to her, she simply says:

Oh! Hmm... I suppose it was wrong of me to ask this of you. My apologies. Please don't concern yourself with my troubles.

I've tried resetting the game and reloading my save file, but she always responds the same way.

Why won't Laflat give me the Lynel Safari sidequest?

  • Long shot, but did you happen to kill the Lynel by any chance? Commented Nov 29, 2017 at 1:08
  • @Wondercricket Nope. I left as soon as I gathered the shock arrows.

  • I figured that was the case. I read on gamefaqs that one possible reason was the Lynel was killed and needed to wait for a blood moon, so I thought I'd ask. It's weird how it is not letting you complete the quest, I was able to start it with no trouble Commented Nov 29, 2017 at 1:20

You need to progress further on the main quest to get access to the Camera Rune.

After finishing the Great Plateau, you should've gotten a quest to go visit Impa called Seek Out Impa. Complete that quest, and do what Impa tells you to do there.

Impa will then give you a quest to go seek out Purah in Hateno Village called Locked Mementos. After meeting Purah, she will give you a task to go retrieve a blue flame. Complete this and she will give you the Camera Rune.
