Video and Photograph Ghosts

Digital camcorders and cameras are brilliant for recording orbs, light anomalies, shadows and any other strange events.  You are going to need night vision and even an illuminator.   
The camera in our store here is great for filming and taking shots in darkly lit rooms allowing you to highlight potential orbs, spirits and manifests!  

You've probably seen these type of camera's on Ghost Adventures, Ghost Hunters, Haunted Collector, Most Haunted and Killer Contact with the great results.

We've had  excellent success with these and took many photo's of spirits and even a small child spirit outline that wouldn't have been  caught on a normal camera.  It's a great little portable camera where you won't have to spend hundreds of pounds to capture great results.
EVP are great documented proof of the afterlife.

Speak with the Spirits

Now you've caught your spook on film - wouldn't you like to interact with them?  Ideally you want a portable recorder suitable to ours here.
Place your digital recorder in an area where haunting activity is suspected to occur and then ask questions.  With a bit of luck you may capture an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) which can be kept and played back.  The theory is that spirits use the electric energy from the recorder as power to leave voices.  We've had  excellent success with these and would recommend them as for trying to interact via question and answer on a ghost hunt.
Along with being cute - the light up teddy is a great way to interact with child spirits.

Trigger the Paranormal

A good ghost hunter uses trigger objects to gain a spirit's interest.   These objects can range from light sensors, ghost balls and special cuddly toys (for child spirits).  Try using trigger objects in areas where there has been reports of things being moved. Lay down a piece of paper, select an object ( ornament, wooden cross etc), lay the object on the piece of paper and accurately draw round it with a pen. Leave the area alone for a while and then return to see if the object has moved.  
Using our special items, you can ask the spirit to touch the item and see if they can set off the lights or alarms linked to the device.

We've had  great success with these and would recommend them being placed in a corner where you believe there is interaction and standing a reasonable distance away (so you don't set it off yourself).  Asking closed questions to set them off.
Our favourite moment was using them to confirm the age, sex and name of a spirit that matched up to historical records!

Measure the Metaphysical

If you intend to take temperature changes, EMF readings or sudden vibrations measurements, than we can recommend those are all great techniques.  
A EMF meter is vital than can clearly be measured (think digital display rather than basic lights) along with a quick instant temperature gun to ensure you capture any drops in coldness really quick.
