Genshin Impact: Where to find the five colored items and creatures during the camera event


The Genshin Impact photo event Five Flushes of Fortune is here … for now. Ringing in the 1.3 update for just one short week, the camera event tasks adventurers with a simple mission: Take photos of objects and enemies of a particular color each day. Players can take 10 shots per day, with each one dishing out one of five randomly colored photographs. Turn in a full set and get a bunch of rewards, including 60 Primogems and either adventure EXP items for characters and weapons, or cold, hard mora.

Over the course of the photo event, fans can turn in eight complete sets of shots for a grand total of 480 Primogems and other items. It’s mostly easy to manage, but the random nature of the resulting photo means trading extra shots between friends to amass a full collection in time. Here’s where to find each color item and creature to quickly get your 10 shots per day.

How to start the Genshin Impact photo event quest

While the last patch made a big deal of the combat “kamera” gadget, you don’t need to have unlocked it to get involved in this new event. What you do need, though, is access to Liyue Harbor, so get down there if you haven’t already.

To start the quest, simply talk to Ji Tong near his parasol-adorned cart by the harbor front. He’ll tell you that his new batch of picture boxes are playing up, and he wants you to take shots of subjects of a particular color each day so he can diagnose the cause. Come back to him when you have a full set of five different colored photographs and one of eight reward boxes will be yours.

Genshin Impact camera event locations

Camera event day one: Red item locations

Ji Tong actually gives a good clue of this as you pick up the quest. There are plenty of red objects in Genshin Impact, but the jueyun chili is by far the quickest way to clear this first challenge.

As three jueyun chillis grow on each plant, you can use up all 10 shots on four nodes–and there’s a perfect jueyun chilli location right on the border of Liyue and Mondstadt that has more than enough right beside each other.

Camera event day two: Blue creature locations

The second day of the Genshin Impact camera event wants 10 shots of a blue creature. With the snowy region of Dragonspine recently opening up, Cryo enemies are in abundance. Even Cryo Crystalflies count, so if you happen to find some of those on your travels, snap a pick before you grab them.

Cryo Slimes are another good bet. There’s a bunch of them on the shore by the Dawn Winery. If you truly hate yourself, you can finish fast by starting a fight with the Oceanid. Its legion of watery illusions should all work. Just watch out for their deadly attacks.

Camera event day three: Red creature locations

Turns out just about any Hillichurl counts as a red creature, so this one should be a breeze. Hillichurl camps are just about everywhere outside of a main city, but if you haven’t been here before, the valley around the Jueyun Chili location from the first day has a bunch of these guys ready for their close up. There’s even a little alcove with a bunch of chests buried in the mountain, too.

If you don’t find enough on the beach, the floating fortress in the image above is an easy backup. Just be ready to get creative with the zoom. It’s a small space with a lot of enemies.

Camera event day four: Yellow item locations

Yellow items likely won’t spring to mind fast, but the trees of Teyvat have a particular fruit that should fit the bill just fine — Sunsettias. These common consumables are found all over the place, but to grab 10 real fast, you only need to teleport to Cape Oath. Just to the north of the spot you’ll find three trees just a short sprint apart.

Head a little closer toward the Electro Hypostasis to the south and you should happen across some more. Each tree has three Sunsettias, so getting your 10 shots should be a breeze.

Camera event day five: Purple creature locations

Purple tends to be the color of Electro, so Electro Slimes, Cici Mages, and Abyss Mages are what you should be on the lookout for here. You can find a couple of Electo Slimes in a small alcove beneath the Ruins of Guyun domain.

For a more consistent hunt, select the Cici Mage in the Adventurer’s Handbook and follow to a spawn point. These are, more often than not, Electro Cicin Mages. Get the timing right and you can take shots of her and the many electro flies she spawns. Take care of them and she’ll spawn some more for you to snapshot. Easy. Sort of.

How to get crimson, ultramarine, pale gold, ocher, and purple aster photos in the Genshin Impact camera event

As explained above, the color theme of the day has no effect on the color of the photo you get in return. It’s completely random which of the five color photos you get with each shot.

If you’re unlucky enough to not end up with eight complete sets at the end of the event period, you’ll have to trade with other players. There’s no system to do a direct transfer of these, but by messaging a bunch of strangers in-game, you should find some willing to trade. Genshin Impact has one of the largest Discord servers on the planet right now, so head there and you’ll surely find someone with the photos you need to complete a set.
