I probably have the lowest ammount of gear. I carry a digital camera, flashlight, duct tape, and usually cigarette in hand.

I use these items regularly...

VHS camcorder with low lux capability.
35 mm camera
digital camera
Gaussmaster EMF detector
laser thermometer
RF detector

Why is it you don't smoke when hunting? The only reason I won't is if I'm in someone else's house or if I'm snappin' 'em off. I don't like the "smoke ecto".

-multiple 35mm cameras/using only 400 speed film
-multiple full size cassette recorders
-I/R Thermometer
-Sony Handicam-Hi8 with night shots and tripod
-Two Security camera set-ups that record to VCR via coaxial cable. No wireless and they are on tripods.
-Monitors for the security cams so they can be watched during the investigation
-hand-held radios for team communication
-digital camera only used for mapping purposes-NEVER used in paranormal investigations.
-tool box with plug cheaters, batteries for equipment, tools, extra tapes and film. Barrel connectors for coax.
-many long extension cords.
-our newest addition...a 4000 watt generator to operate the equipment if no available electricity at the site.

My "bag" consists of 4 large totes that everything fits into fairly nicely. Kyle also has a tote for his equipment, so when we come to your house to investigate there is a lot of equipment to haul there.

There are a few smokers on our team too but we never smoke during an investigation and no photos are allowed during a time when someone is smoking. We do take smoke breaks that are outside and away from all cameras and no still photos are allowed during this time. Professionalism is paramount during an investigation.

I only do it for friends at the moment because in my area ghosts are taboo, but anyone who can get rid of them that is not a Christian or Catholic leader is even more taboo. So I don't need much professionalism yet.

We do get rid of them too but never bring religion into the mix. That only makes things worse by my experience.

I remember the days when I first started out. It was actually kind of nice really. It was more relaxing without the pressure we have now. We have grown a ton in the last couple of years and are now being invited to travel to investigate and have been invited to go to Ypsilanti Michigan next October to investigate the house that was the source for the Woodland Haunting 2 movie. We have to remain professional at this point or it will cause us all kinds of problems.

That is cool though and I wish you the very best in your endeavors!

I would carry a tape recorder on investigations but cassette recorders are not as easy to come by as they once were. I am currently looking into using a CD-R sound recorder. I have used a digital voice recorder but no longer have one. The nice thing about a digital voice recorder is no tape hiss. I would still prefer the cassette recorder because I believe the EVP embeds itself to the tape itself on occasion and doesn't always rely on the microphone.

Well let me see if I can remember what all we have:

4 sony digital HI8 video cameras
4 channel DVR system and tons of cables
4 tripods
4 wide angle lenses for our video cameras
2 IR thermometers
1 datalogger (temperature device which we can place in an area and it records temp/humidity all night and we can download it to our computer for a graph)
2 ambiant thermometers
4 stand alone IR lights
Trifield EMF meter
Gaussmeter EMF
EMF cell sensor (which I don't like and won't use!)
I personally have a sony P210 digital voice recorder but others on our team have olympus recorders also
A flat screen TV to watch the video cameras on
Kodak digital camera 6.1 megapixel
Masking tape to tape down cables
I use my laptop to record EVP's sometimes with an external microphone

We put this all in 2 Anvil cases for easy transport.

I also have a tackle box which holds AA, AAA, C, D, 9Volt batteries and my camera batteries and other little misc things for our investigations.

But the most important thing I have is my clipboard and my logbook where I can document everything.
