Here is what I use/and do:

* I ask permission first. I wouldn't be jumping for joy to find out what spending a night in the county jail would be like along with possibly paying a steep fine for trespassing.

*I respect people, places, things and property.

* I carry a Elgin spring wound pocket watch circa 1926. I don't rely on anything else. (If my Elgin watch should ever stop anytime soon I have only myself to blame because I didn't get it professionally cleaned/oiled, etc.) I also carry it for the comfort and sentimental value even tho I bought it from an antique store.

* I use a HP Digital Camera with flash. I stopped using 35 mm disposable cameras because the expense to develope the film is pricy.

* I use a tiny notebook and a pen. This way I can write down the location, time, weather conditions, atomsphere conditions, and my personal feelings I precieve of any certain place I may enter.

* I try to have pure inner strength, keep an open mind, calm spirit, and listen to my inner voice. If something just don't feel right with any location, I take a step aside and wait. If I still feel uneasy about a certain place, then I listen to what my inner feelings are telling me and usually don't proceed.

*I'm a non-smoker, so the only thing I do is limit snacks and soda pop/tea/water intake if a place involves a few hours of staying in or outdoors without an accessible bathroom nearby.

*A tape recorder/ new cassette tapes, new batteries. Nothing drains juice faster or gives more recording malfunctions than the location/and or place... and sometimes human error (me).

* Inexpensive flashlights. As many as I can carry in a small back pack and new batteries.

* I inform my friends of what I am doing/where I will be/ and how long I will be. And I always take somebody along with me, my husband.

Here is what I don't use:

*I don't use an EMF device. This would just get me all confused. I understand that this is a good thing to take along to any kind of ghost/ haunting location, but I would just be lost. :Spaz:

* I don't own a cell phone. I figure if I need to say something it can wait until I get home.

And that is pretty much it for myself. - Josette

Was checking out some ghost sites and found this one. When I saw this thread and the one discussing film or digital, I had to join and add my 2 cents.

I've got:

E.L.F. Zone
Cellsensor - actually belongs to my possibly soon to be ex-ghost hunting parter, but he keeps it with me since I have most of the other equipment
Infrared Thermometer
piece of crap headlamp - also belongs to my possibly soon to be ex-ghost hunting parter
piece of crap flashlight with interchangeable red lens - was only like $5 at Walmart
Disposable 35mm camera(s)
Canon Powershot S2 IS 5MP digital camera
Troy Taylor's Ghost Hunters Guidebook... or whatever its called.

We sometimes stop by Walmart and/or 7-11 on the way to a site to pick up a disposable camera if its a spur-of-the-moment hunt, and it doesn't hurt to pick up a coffee, red bull, rockstar, or other energy drink, since its around 11pm when we head out.

Don't have much but its just about all the two of us can carry with us.

We use
SLR Canon EOS digital Rebel XTi 10.1 mp camera
1 Olympus 2100 pc vox digital recorder
3 other digital recorders (can't remember the brand names)
2 mini flashlights
1 3 led headlamp with 1 red led
3 6 led headlamps with 2 red led
And we are about to get an ampient thermoniter w/J probe that also tells us what the humidity is. Then we are saving up for our laptop and hard wired camera system.

My current arsenal consists of:

1 HP 5+mp digital camera

1 Minolta 35mm slr w/multiple lens for varying conditions, all with anti-uv filters, hotshoe flash w/ 10' - 40' range - fully posable

1 Sony Digi-8 w/ nightshot & IR flashlight booster (works better than the Sony illuminator - $8 off eBay)

4 magnetic pickups w/ mini amplifiers - low cost alternative to emf meters, allows me to hear the magnetic fields and rf fields in realtime)

1 digital weatherstation with wired probe mounted to a pvc rod - handheld temperature and humidity readings from the source)

1 Olympus digital voice recorder

1 RCA full-sized analog cassette recorder w/external mic

1 Sony Handicam - no nightshot

1 Panasonic DVC camcorder - standard for documentation

1 Homeland Security cctv system w/ 2 cameras, 1 60' wire and 1 100' wire, and 2 IR illuminators to accent

1 VCR - 4head

1 IR flashlight for hand held illumination to accent Sony digi8 or cctv system

pens, paper, clipboards

extension cords

power strips

cord wraps

footlocker, camera bags

most important - eyes, ears, nose, brain - if you don't have those, you have nothing!
