a seemingly simple cheevo but take heed!

Ok the Bioshock 2 camera differs from B1.

It's found in the Paupers drop level and is required as a goal in the game.

Whip it out o_o, turn it on when your target is in view and you automatically switch back to your last gun.

Now dispatch your foe in a creative and varied manner for more research points.

Big sisters (and to a lesser extent Alpha Daddy) pose an issue as there are a severe limit to their numbers - they appear approx every three sisters that you "deal with".
To maximise your score, (whip the camera out again to film) electrobolt, then drill melee (no need to use fuel - hit B), and repeat until dead - bolt n drill

I post this as I didn't get the Sisters researched until the last couple. I changed my strategy using the tip above and got loadsa points.

Obviously when you spot a new enemy try your very best to snap every one and max your score as soon as. Certain enemies (such as thuggish) fritter out towards the end of the game. If you're half paying attention like me then only the sisters will pose an issue.

Thanks to Renton for pointing out that if you fail to max a certain research track by the end of the game you can start a new game and finish the subjects your still need to max eg thuggish splicers and the cheevo should pop.

Any negs, please comment.
Any other solutions, please explain why mine isn't good enough ^_^
