|Max out all possible research.|
Much like "Prolific Photoghrapher" except you need to max the research on all those types. Once you fill the bar four times on all of the listed things you will get this. Action shots make the bar fill faster and you are able to take multiple photos of the same subject, so just keep snapping until it tells you the quality is too low.

Did you research the security camera, turret and security bot?

I've researched everything including turrets, bots and cameras and still no achievement. :(

I've had the exact same problem as well. Gone through the entire game three and each time this is the one achievement it refuses to give me.

You need to research the turrets, cameras, and the little flying bastards all
the way and it will come just as easily as the others. Did it on my first
playthrough after I noticed I could keep researching turrets etc.

I think @R3DRuMe is right. I've now unlocked all the other research achievements, but haven't finished research on the turrets, bots and cameras. Seems logical. I'm hoping it will unlock once I max those, although they are quite annoyingly difficult to take snaps of! :-)

I was on the very ending of the game, and I only needed research on the cameras,
but they where either hacked or destroyed, FML!

I almost missed the cameras as well, not knowing they could be researched until later in the game.
I'm guessing that those having trouble with this achievement have not researched either the cameras, turrets, or bots completely (remember, you need four full bars).

Yeah you need to research the turrets and cameras and security bots.
those take the most amount of research, and everything youve researched
doesnt carry over to a new game

so is there no way to max research of cameras and bots after your at the point of no return

Camera's are easiest to research if just run under them and take pictures. they won't see you so you can eaisily research them.
|Comment #14 by A7X x Shadow|
Thursday, July 21, 2011 @ 03:33:55 AM
Yeah, the security is the hardest to research, mostly because, if you're good enough at the game, you'll probably be avoiding the cameras so much that you won't really even see any security bots. Worst is that there's no way to keep track of them. I almost missed this one, took a snap of a turret, and found out I missed them.

You have to photograph the turrets, camera, bots, splicers, Big Daddies, and Little Sisters. I didn't know on my previous playthroughs that you had to take pictures of the Big Daddies and the Little Sisters. I'm doing ANOTHER playthrough of BioShock on easy just to get this achievement. Ugh....

This achievement is SO LONG! You need to take a picture of everything that
moves.Every enemy including the little sisters must be taken on picture.
Also,dude Pagie5886,you should know that you must take photos of the 2 big
daddies (the bouncer and the rosie).I hope this helps.

It seems like security cameras always give me a C rating. How the heck does one get an A rating?

Just a note, you can research the flying bots at any time. Just go to a previous level, find some enemies and lead them to a friendly camera. This will spawn yellow bots that can be researched. Hope this saves you some time :)

big daddys come in 2 types rosie and bouncer both need 2 be photographed

Make sure you photograph the security bots/turrets and both types of big daddy.

Tuesday, March 06, 2012 @ 02:39:56 PM
Im not sure why everyone is having problems with this achievement i got it quite easily. What you must fully research (fill the bar four times):
Bouncer big daddy
Rosie big daddy
Security bot (flying bot)
It helps to have the photographer's eye tonic and try get multiple subjects and action shots. You can take a picture of the same subject several times until it says score too low.

am i the only one that thinks that the fort frolic spider splicers, the all white ones, are the most terrifying thing in the whole game?
|Comment #23 by xXJuicyGiantXx|
Monday, April 30, 2012 @ 10:33:48 PM
also, to complete the bouncer research i photographed them first with the little sister, then killed them, then harvested the little sister and after that just went on with the mission but if you leave and come back they respawn so i just kept coming back, photographing them and then killing them. lather, rinse, repeat

do you have to fully research the subjects in one game/play-though or is it accumulative with just getting achievements. (Bouncer was the only one I missed)

Yes you have to research everything in 1 play through unfortunately.

I fully researched everything I got all the achievements for them and I also fully researched the cameras turrets and the flying things.

For people who aren't getting this, go back through the levels and take one more picture of every enemy to make sure you have them all. You might have maxed out the research for one of them, got the achievement for that particular one, then died at a later point without a save after you fully researched that enemy.

@ #23 - agree with you there! Those plastered splicers are bloody horrible. You don't have to photograph them though I don't think, although to be fair I didn't try - they behave just like spider splicers, which I had maxed out by the end of Fort Frolic, so I didn't think to try. You do realise they only come to life if you use the Power To The People machine in the Sinclair Spirits basement?

All you have to do is max out all possible research in a playthrough. Its NOT hard at all. Yes, in one play through, it wouldnt make any sense to let it combine playthroughs unless there were like 100 different enemies, which there are not. Those flying fucks are a pain, finish those ASAP

I was screwed before because this is important too
That means cameras,turrets,flying camera bots. Before you hack a machine snap a picture as many times as it will net you XP. Try to get Grade A first photo then each picture is B grade then C then you cant photograph the same machine. This helps you get this achivement faster.
At the time I didnt know machines counted too and as I hacked EVERYTHING in the game I was screwed.
Not hard if ya know what yur doin :)
|Comment #34 by Deadsea 18|
Tuesday, April 09, 2013 @ 08:40:56 PM
Also this means
The Bouncer and Rosie Big daddies (Bouncers are the drill guys,Rosies carry the big gun)
The many different splicers like The Spider (Crawls on ceiling and has knife hands.) and other splicers
The little sisters, BEFORE Rescuing/killing them always snap a photo of them. Snap a photo before challenging the big daddy,then kill the Big guy then snap photos at the crying lil sister.
The machines like turrets,cameras,bots.
You need to fully research everything in one playthrough. I reserched EVERYTHING EXCEPT The Machines. I did not know they counted. Dont make my mistake.

Just to recap, there are sub-achievements for researching the different inhabitants of Rapture required for this achievement, except for the three machines: turrets, sentry bots, and cameras. You'll know when each is finished because it will say something like 'research complete,picture not taken' if you try and photograph something that you've completed.
Keep you film stocked up from vending machines, and take multiple pictures per enemy and you'll get this completed by the end of the game. The last one I needed was 'Rosie' and I was afraid I'd have to go back and farm the earlier levels since all I could find were Bouncers, but Rosie's do show up again in the later levels.

If anyone is having trouble with researching everything. Just remember you can go back and research everything but the little sister if you have harvested/rescued all of them. Its what i did my first play through. Couldn't figure out which one i didnt have researched because there were no more little sisters for me to take pictures of.

To get the bots easily, hack a camera, lure an enemy towards it to trigger the alarm and take pics of the bots coming. They are friendly but not hacked and they take care of the splicer, making it a win-win situation!
|Comment #38 by Onebull|
Wednesday, May 15, 2013 @ 11:03:58 AM
Do they security cameras even reset to hostile? I hacked everything and still need the camera pics.
|Comment #39 by CesarianAlex|
Friday, May 31, 2013 @ 07:35:53 AM
@38: Once a camera (or bot or turret for that matter) is hacked, it stays friendly until destroyed, and as they don't respawn I assume you need a second playthrough.

Would have been a wonderful idea had they kept a log of everything you have researched so you could see how far along you were and which you have completed. I'm still working on the first one so I HOPE they made a log in the second and third one.
For anyone working on the little sister's, I read somewhere that you can actually max out on one little sister. Each time one comes out of a hidy hole, it counts as a new one. Take as many pics as possible of a little sis, let her go in her hidy hole, follow the Big Daddy until he gets a new one, then take as many pics of that one. Rinse and repeat until maxed. I cannot confirm this though as I have not tried it yet. Hope this cheevo doesn't glitch on me!
For the big daddy's each time you kill one and respawns, it counts as a new one th
