GHOST HUNTING EQUIPMENT

 

35MM CAMERA. WE USE TWO DIFFERENT 35MM CAMERAS ON OUR GHOST HUNTS, BOTH ARE  AUTOFOCUS AND AUTOFLASH. WE USE 400 SPEED COLOR FILM IN BOTH CAMERAS. IF YOU ARE ON A HUNT OUTSIDE AND IT IS COLD ENOUGH TO SEE YOUR BREATH, WE RECOMMEND HOLDING THE CAMERA AWAY FROM YOUR FACE WHEN TAKING A PICTURE SO AS NOT TO CAPTURE YOUR BREATH ON THE FILM.

FLASHLIGHTS. EACH MEMBER OF OUR GHOST HUNTING TEAM CARRIES A FLASHLIGHT. YOU MAY WANT TO CARRY EXTRA BATTERIES WITH YOU SINCE BATTERIES SEEM TO GO DEAD QUICKLY IN A CEMETERY. IT MAY ALSO BE A GOOD IDEA TO CARRY SOME CANDLES IN CASE THE FLASHLIGHTS SHOULD FAIL.

TAPE RECORDER. A TAPE RECORDER CAN BE USED TO RECORD ELECTRONIC VOICE PHENOMENA (EVPS). THE MODEL WE HAVE ALLOWS FOR AN EXTERNAL MICROPHONE AND EARPHONES. THE MICROPHONE WE USE CAN ATTACH RIGHT TO THE TAPE RECORDER SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO HOLD IT.

ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELD DETECTOR. THE ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELD DETECTOR (EMF) IS USED TO FIND AND TRACK ENERGY SOURCES. IT IS THOUGHT THAT WHEN A GHOST IS PRESENT IT WILL DISRUPT THE ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELD AND CAUSE A HIGHER READING ON AN EMF METER.

DIGITAL THERMOMETER.  A DECREASE IN TEMPERATURE CAN INDICATE SPIRIT ACTIVITY. YOU CAN ALSO USE A THERMOMETER TO LOCATE COLD SPOTS THAT ARE COMMONLY ASSOCIATED WITH HAUNTINGS.

DIGITAL CAMERAS. OUR GROUP USES SEVERAL DIFFERENT BRANDS OF DIGITAL CAMERAS DURING GHOST HUNTS AND INVESTIGATIONS. SOME PEOPLE DO NOT FEEL IT IS APPROPRIATE TO USE DIGITAL CAMERAS BUT WE BELIEVE THEY ARE A VERY USEFUL TOOL.

CAMCORDERS. WE USE TWO DIFFERENT TYPES OF CAMCORDER. ONE IS A STANDARD CAMCORDER AND THE OTHER ONE HAS NIGHT VISION AND INFRARED CAPABILITIES. WE USUALLY SET UP BOTH CAMCORDERS AT THE SAME TIME.

NIGHT VISION SCOPE. WE HAVE A NIGHT OWL NIGHT VISION SCOPE BUT WE RARELY USE IT BECAUSE IT HAS TO BE USED IN TOTAL DARKNESS. THERE IS USUALLY TOO MUCH LIGHT IN THE  HOMES, BUSINESSES OR CEMETERIES WE INVESTIGATE  TO RISK USING THE SCOPE.

IDENTIFICATION. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO CARRY YOUR IDENTIFICATION WHEN YOU ARE ON A GHOST HUNT. WE WERE ON A HUNT IN A CEMETERY WHEN THE POLICE CAME TO INVESTIGATE WHY WE WERE THERE AFTER DARK. THIS POLICE OFFICER WAS VERY UNDERSTANDING AND ALLOWED US TO STAY IN THE CEMETERY EVEN THOUGH IT WAS CLOSED FOR THE NIGHT.

THESE ARE JUST A FEW OF THE THINGS YOU MAY WANT TO BRING WITH YOU ON YOUR GHOST HUNT. WE HAVE BEEN ON A HUNT WITH NOTHING MORE THAN A FLASHLIGHT AND A CAMERA, SO IT'S UP TO YOU WHAT YOU CHOOSE TO BRING.
