  1. Thank you so much for this guide! I got so confused what to do when Rui went missing, this really helped me! 😀

  2. Great guide. I’ve been finding them really useful for getting my clears.

    There are some optional photo shots that might be worth listing for this drop. After you trigger the 2nd and 3rd ghost children in their hiding spots (The hole and workshop respectively) you can get ‘Fleeing Child’ Specter photos of them. I’ve found that Type-7 film is too slow to get the Specter of the ghost in the hole, so I ended up using Type-90 for the Phantom Exposure and the Specter shot. With the ghost in the workshop, she appears behind you but there is enough time to turn and take a photo with Type-7

    Despite appearaning, I don’t believe you can take a photo of the boy that appears in the 1F storeroom after you take the Phantom Exposure photo of him, or of the box man on the way to the second ghost.

    There are another two ‘Fleeing Child’ photos after you rescue Rui. After the save point when you find Rui, when you take a step or two forward one will appear and you’ll be able to take a photo of her. Another will appear just as you head towards the door to the Returning Hallway, where he opens the door. If you have your camera out when you approach and sidestep to have the door in sight, its a relatively easy shot.
