EMF Meter: This meter is used by Ghost Hunters and
Investigators to detect the electro-
magnetic field given off by some, if not most,
active entities. An EMF meter
is of no use
unless the time has been taken to map out the
investigation site during an inactive time to
natural hot spots such as hidden wires or phone cords.
Camera: A digital camera is the camera of choice for most ghost
hunters because the results are immediate. Most any camera will do as long as it has a flash. Some ghost pictures have
been obtained without a flash but examples of those are rare.
We find this piece of equipment kind of
expensive for what it does, not to say it isn't a use tool in the tool box. Unless you are doing an investigation in
a house or building, we wouldn't recommend
using this type of device. They are good
for use in a small area with a range of about 30 feet. Keep in mind that it does as the name suggests: 'detects movement
within its effective range'.
Camcorder: The new digital camcorder is the ticket for recording
paranormal activity. Still a bit pricey but very effective.
Night Vision: Night vision is a valuable piece of equipment
and a personal favorite of ParaHaunt's team. It allows you to see in absolute
Digital or Iron Oxide Tape Voice Recorder: Both are used to
record EVP's. We prefer the digital recorders in order to reduce 'signal to noise' ratio caused by motor noise
or other tape imperfections.
2-Way Radios: It is very important to keep in contact with your
team or your base station during an investigation or hunt. FRS radios offer an excellent way to stay in touch.
Infra-Red Security Camera: These make an awesome addition
to a ghost hunter's tool box because they allow you to watch a room without having to be in it. The cameras we
prefer are infra-red, making it possible to see anything that might be moving about within a darkened room including
orbs and figures that would not be visable without this technology .
No-Contact Thermometer: Also known as MiniTemp, these are
excellent for measuring the variance in temperature that occurs with cold spots associated with most hauntings.
