The advice on how to use real Ghost Hunting equipment can only be be answered by real researchers with years of experience in the ghost hunting field. Many would be Ghost Hunters only shop Paranormal Detection Equipment, Electronic Ghost Hunting Detectors because they think it is cool and want to try their hand at it. Usually without any prior training or other interest then doing what they think is cool.
Paranormal investigators make use of over a dozen different tools and electronic devices to help track down and locate possible evidence of paranormal. But are they in your ghost Hunters toolbox?
I can remember the day when individuals went into a very haunted house armed only with a Camera: 35mm camera with black and white film and/or infrared film. It took no more then that to make many into true believers. Today it is all about full documentation with no errors, and sworn testimony to the level that it makes us all look suspect. that is if we don't have or do what they do on TV.
A Ghost Hunter from JACKSON, MS. she wrote me telling me in her long email that she had been ghost hunting professionally for over 5 years. And that she was an upstanding Member of the TAPS Family.
Her request was for me to explain how to use the EMF detector she owned for 4.5 years and never quite got the hang of. In truth I discovered she actually used it because the clients who she investigated for expected it. But she had no clue to what the readings actually meant.
My advice is: Determine which ghost hunting methods you'll feel most comfortable working with: sensory or scientific. Sensory includes the use of dowsing rods, wind chimes and even psychics, sensitive's or mediums.
Scientific employs gadgets such as video cameras, thermal imaging scopes and electromagnetic field (EMF) detectors. Some ghost hunters use a combination of both.
At UnivCon 2008, Brian Harnois gave a presentation entitled "21st Century Ghost Hunter" wherein he questioned the tools that are used for ghost hunting on paranormal television shows. He discusses Flir, digital voice recorders, IR cameras, and more. Keep in mind that this is edited together, and therefore is not the full lecture.
Many of us realize that both amateur and professional ghost hunters will appreciate the extensive range of ghost hunting equipment available to suit any budget and any level of experience. But people just don't buy something because you think it's cool. Electronic equipment adds objectivity and reliability to your paranormal research. But if your knowledge and use of the item is weak why pull it out?
If you must learn from your Ghost Hunting or other Ghost Hunters mistakes you should retreat and start at the beginning. These beginner's kit is great for hobbyists and novice ghost hunters.

TRI-FIELD NATURAL EM METER..... The personally recommended meter of researcher TROY TAYLOR! One of the most sensitive devices on the market and one of the most complex. It is not always recommended for beginners and is so sensitive that it can even pick up the fields of living persons. It was originally designed to read the activity of geo-magnetic storms so it can be delicate to carry around in an investigation. The best use for it is to place it in a stationary location and allow it to pick up movement in the extended range around it. It can also be used as a hand-held device but must be used carefully. Features a continuous analog reading and a SUM setting that allows it to pick up electric and magnetic fields at the same time. Signals any changes in field with an audio alarm. Highly recommended for the experienced ghost hunter!

Highly recommended for the beginning ghost hunter over cheaper meters! Only $129.95
PERSONAL EMF ALARM: Just like the acclaimed TriField Meter, this has the addition of an audible alarm (that works for electric, magnetic, or RF) and you can set the alarm threshold at any level you want. The unit can be left unattended and it will alert you to the presence of a field above the threshold so you don't have to stare at the meter or you an even be in another room. Note that the threshold can be set to screen out any background EMF. As an alternative, and array of these meters can be set out over an area and the movement of a field can be tracked as the various meters sound their alarms. Remember, this is a 3-axis meter, so you don't miss important information just because the meter was not aligned properly.

This device (like the IR thermometer with the Type K Probe and the Dual Pocket Thermometer -- see both below) makes any other type of temperature sensing device obsolete. This basic meter offers both in one unit and is essential for your tool kit. Only $69.95
Peak/Hold 2-Range Gaussmeter
Peak/Hold 2-Range Gaussmeter: Another easy to use meter and a low-cost, single axis device. This unit is comfortable in your hand and features an easy-to-read digital screen -- with some added options over other meters of this type. The "peak" feature allows the investigator to let the meter run over extended periods to identify the highest fields in the area.

Operates on 2 standard AA batteries and can be switched on and off from 30 feet away with a remote device. Great for paranormal research! $19.95
Decide how regularly you plan to ghost hunt. Ghost hunting as an occasional hobby doesn't require the use of the more sophisticated equipment, so there's no need to invest heavily in technology.
Go ghost hunting with someone who does it regularly. See what equipment they use and recommend and ask them for recommendations on local sources for equipment.
Use things you already own to avoid investing a lot of money up front. Start with the basics such as a camera, flashlights and a way to record investigation data such as with a notebook and pen or voice recorder.
Take into consideration the types of places you want to investigate and who will be with you. Walkie talkies come in handy for keeping in contact when covering large spaces such as cemeteries. Compasses not only help in navigating unfamiliar territory, they also react to magnetic fluctuations, which ghosts are said to sometimes influence.
Determine which equipment you are most likely to use if you are pursuing a scientific approach to data collection. Comparison shop at electronics and camera stores to be sure you are getting the best price and warranty on the equipment you purchase.
Real Ghost Hunting Tips & Warnings
Recording investigation data such as the date and location of the investigation, who's present and start time and finish times helps to preserve the integrity of the hunt. And of cousre it is real documentation.
Keep a lookout for used equipment, especially the more pricey and prized items like infrared thermal scanners, night vision equipment and air ion counters. Today pawn shops and ebay are filled with them.
Make sure to carry extra batteries. Many paranormal investigations do last for many, many hours. It's also theorized that ghosts drain available energy sources, such as batteries, to manifest. You want to make sure your equipment always has a power source in case you encounter Ghostly activity off the scale.
Don't spend a lot of money on fancy equipment for your first ghost hunting excursion. See if your well suited for becomoing a real Paranomal Investigator first.
