Cameras are a ghost
hunters perfect tool for collecting
and documenting actual paranormal
evidence. Some people just have
a knack for capturing ghost on film.
Often some regard the importance
of a A 35mm camera with black and
white film and/or infrared film
as being useful for capturing any
pictures. Always make sure you have
plenty of film. For best results
use a film speed of no less than
200. A speed of 800 may produce
better results although it will
be very grainy. It is also important
that your camera has flash either
its own or slave flash. Have all
the film developed by experts and
don't forget a tri-pod to avoid
have gotten results from Polaroids,
but you could also take these along
with a 35 mm camera, disposable
and digital camera so you can compare
the final ghost photo results. When
you develop 35mm film you don't
need to go to a specific camera
shop, the local drug store or department
store is fine.
Always let them know
in advance you want all the pictures
developed, even if they deem them
unprintable, so that you get the
pictures that they might deem as
bad ones. These "bad ones"
are normally your best pictures
of actual ectoplasm, shadows, orb
or strange anomalies and ghost mist
The IS-50 QD lets you leave
any additional flashes at
home, too. It boasts an advanced
twin flash system along with
an Intelligent Variable-Power

the appropriate light under
a number of photo scenarios…automatically.

to determine the most appropriate

With this new technology
now within reach of the average
person, digital photography has
reached a level where it is finally
acceptable in paranormal research.
By using cameras that start at a
level of no less than 5 megapixels
and taking advantage of all of the
options available to us, we can
actually gather evidence with our
digital camera that is comparable
to that of a 35 mm camera.
Digital Camera -
Regardless of what you've heard
digital cameras are great tools
for ghost researchers, digital cameras
should continued to be used in ghost
research... Once upon a time they
had their limitations and problems
but that is no longer the case.
Not only do they allow you to see
instantly if you have a positive
photo, they can also take photos
in limited infrared range of light.
These cameras have
always been excellent for documenting
a location and also as a secondary,
back-up camera. The problem came
when the digital cameras were the
only cameras used in an investigation.
This was (and still is) and incorrect
use for the camera and it has led
to some disastrous results for the
credibility of paranormal investigations.
Many ghost hunters are out snapping
hundreds of digital photos at random,
using nothing else for their “investigation”
but the camera.

5 megapixel and greater
cameras. These newer cameras not
only offer clean and crisp images
that do not have the problems with
false “orbs” but some
models also offer “Night Shot”
technology and all of them even
offer a way to authenticate the
images that is as trustworthy as
a negative. One of the options of
a higher quality camera is access
to what are called Raw Data files.
These files are uncompressed and
unprocessed and an anomalous image
that is examined using this option
can actually be authenticated –
perhaps with even more detail than
in a photographic negative. In addition,
the newer cameras also offer access
to the EXIF information about images
that are photographed. EXIF is data
that is embedded into the image
once it is taken.
EXIF, It contains
everything about the camera that
took the image, including camera
settings, date and time the image
was taken, if flash was used, the
ISO settings and more. If anyone
attempts to manipulate the image,
the EXIF data holds this information
too. In this way, a person trying
to analyze a digital image will
be able to see if it has been manipulated
or not. If anyone attempts to alter
the EXIF data, it will destroy the
image. In this way, it becomes a
“digital negative” of
every picture that is taken.
Motion Activated Camera-
This camera comes in two kinds,
digital and 35 mm. These are made
for wildlife photography but have
been adopted by paranormal investigators.
Tired of wasting money
on game cameras that don't work
as expected? You're not alone! Introducing
the PixController DIGITALEYE™
trail camera designed from the ground
up to be the ultimate scouting tool.
This system includes a 6.0 MegaPixel
removable Sony DSC-S600 digital
camera for every day use, so when
your trail camera isn't in the woods
you can use the camera for other
purposes. The large LCD display
will let you view all of your photos
right in the woods without needing
to carry along a card viewer. You
can also read the time and date
the photo was taken on the LCD display.
This system is very small too, which
means you can easily conceal it
in the woods. The DIGITALEYE™
trail camera runs off of a single
9V battery lasting for 4-5 months,
even in the coldest conditions.
This ensures your system will be
light, and easy to carry deep into
the woods unlike other systems that
use 4 to 6 C or D cell batteries
only lasting weeks at a time, and
expensive to replace!
This system is built
from our premier PixController Universal
motion controller board. The PIR
motion detection electronics used
are second to none in the industry
today. With a detection range of
80+ feet, so you won't have to worry
about missing any photos. You won't
have to worry about false photos
either like you see on many commercial
game cameras on the market today.
Unlike many game cameras
made today this system uses the
higher end and more sensitive CCD
imaging sensor to capture your high
resolution photos. Almost every
commercial game camera on the market
today uses the less expensive CMOS
imaging sensors that are much less
sensitive to light and produce fuzzy/soft
photos. With this Sony CCD imaging
sensor your photos will be sharp
and crisp, and you will be able
to make out every inch of that trophy
When the DIGITALEYE™
is setup in our exclusive Trail
Mode™ feature it will guarantee
you will capture more photos than
other game cameras on the market
today. Did you ever notice that
almost every game camera on the
market today needs a minimum of
1 minute to store a photo before
it can take the next photo? In a
true "trail" situation
this is totally useless! What happens
when you have a string of doe on
a trail, or a mature buck following
a doe during the rut? Why settle
for a game camera that only captures
the lead animal on a trail?
Frustrated with trying
to setup your current game camera?
Don't know how to program it or
can't even figure out how to easily
attach it and lock it to a tree?
Never have those problems again
with the PixController DIGITALEYE™!
With our easy to setup DIP switch
you can easily adjust delays between
photos, day/night and 24 hour operation,
and even setup for movie mode. With
just one switch to turn your system
on is all you need to do when setting
your PixController DIGITALEYE™
out to start scouting.

Types of cameras
Compacts are just that small cameras.
Compacts can fit in a pocket, and
are available with basic features
such as zoom, video and good LCD
screens. Compact cameras are generally
an excellent value, and fit the
needs of most casual photographers.
Consider the ultra compact the sexier
version of the compact sleek, able
to fit in the palm of your hand,
and the coolest camera available.
While ultra compacts are available
in high megapixel versions, they
don't always deliver high-quality
results these are the fashion-over-function
This is the camera for the more
serious photographer who wants SLR-type
features (faster shutter, manual
controls for f-stop and white balance,
better lenses) without the SLR price
tag. They are just under full-size
to full size, and offer higher quality
images, higher mega pixels and versatility.
Super zooms take the enthusiast
camera up a notch in zoom, but is
for those who prefer automatic controls.
It is not a digital SLR, but offers
a 10x or greater optical zoom, and
some offer image stabilization a
very important factor when you zoom
D-SLRs are the Porsches of the digital
camera set; professional performance,
top image quality, manual or automatic
control over exposure and color,
interchangeable lenses and a load
of other features. You'll also pay
top dollar for this top performer;
these are best for the dedicated
amateur or true professional who
needs the best in equipment and
After you determine the style of
camera that best fits your style,
it's time to determine which features
you will use. Remember bells and
whistles are great, but add to the
coast of the camera, and budget
is usually the determining factor
for most people when purchasing.
So really think about what features
are most important to you.
Size does matter but mega pixels
can be misleading. Digital images
are made up of small squares; each
megapixel represents 1,000 squares.
So a 3mp camera shoots an image
made up of three million megapixels.
Megapixels don't translate into
the quality of the image, but rather
determine how large the image will
be. The higher the megapixel, the
larger the image can be printed
or viewed, and the more you can
crop an image without losing quality.
Look for a camera with high image
quality sharpness, color accuracy
and color exposure. How can you
tell if a camera has high image
quality? Check its sensor size.
A larger sensor means each individual
pixel is larger, which equals a
better image quality.
Optical zoom is ultra-important
and is different than digital zoom.
The optical zoom refers to how close
you can get to your subject the
higher the optical zoom, the closer
you'll get. Digital zoom refers
to the software function which allows
you to magnify or crop an image
Photo storage / Memory
Digital cameras use a wide variety
of memory cards, with a wide variety
of storage space. Most new cameras
come with at least a small amount
of memory. There's XD, SD, CF, and
so on. While there's not a lot of
difference in the performance of
the various memory devices, how
the camera transfers the images
to your computer for editing, printing
and sharing is something you should
Many cameras offer
a USB cable for transferring images,
and the cards of course can be removed
from the camera and inserted into
an external card reader for viewing.
If you're the parent of the next
big sports star or ballerina, then
be sure to look for a camera with
a faster shutter speed, otherwise
you'll be frustrated by blurry action
photos. Many cameras offer a rapid-shot
option, which allows a quick succession
of images to be taken.
Many digital cameras offer video
recording allowing you to record
short videos, with or without sound.
Battery types vary as much as the
cameras available. Many offer removable,
rechargeable batteries, which are
not always included in the purchase
price of the camera. Even the least
expensive compact camera uses up
a lot of power; invest in a set
of rechargeable batteries and a
charger if possible.
Finally: The buy
Now that you've done the research,
it's time to buy. Here are some
tips to keep in mind when you've
narrowed down your choices.
Buy the best camera
within your budget; go for the top
number of mega-pixels and most features
that are important to you.
The larger and brighter
the LCD, the better; a bright LCD
makes it easier to see your photos,
as well as organize them.
Be clear about what
is included in the purchase price
of the model you choose. Those little
extras memory cards, cases, straps
add up quickly, so be sure you're
making an apple-to-apple price comparison
If the camera store
offers a how-to class, seriously
consider taking it. You may be surprised
by the tips and techniques that
you can pick up in a short course
on your new camera.
