The Camera Shop is a photography studio located in the west area of Tal Tal Heights. It is only featured in The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX. It is run by a purple mouse named the photographer. The logo on the building reads "CAMERA", and a large camera sign is displayed over it; the building has a blue roof. The Camera Shop is an optional location, so Link is not required to visit it during his adventure. Even though it is a shop, the Camera Shop does not sell anything.

Link first encounters the photographer in the Camera Shop. If Link is traveling without Marin, BowWow, or the Flying Rooster, the photographer offers to take a photograph of him. If Link agrees, the photographer instructs him to stand in front of the screen at the back of the Camera Shop and takes a picture. If Link refuses twice, the photographer forces him against the screen and takes a picture. Either way, the photographer puts the picture into a photo album named The Travels of Link. After that, the photographer appears at certain parts of the adventure to take more pictures of Link for the album. This does not occur if Link is yet to visit the Camera Shop.

Link can only view The Travels of Link album by visiting the Camera Shop. The album is located on a table at the upper-left corner of the store. The player can optionally print any saved photographs from a Game Boy Printer if one is connected to the Game Boy Color. This feature does not work for the Nintendo 3DS's Virtual Console release.

In the Nintendo Switch remake, the Camera Shop was replaced by Dampé's Shack.
