Our team uses many different pieces of equipment. We are in the process of saving up for a thermal cam. Those things are wonderful, but very expensive. Here are some of the things we use now though:

35mm Cameras
Digital Camera
Tape Recorder
Digital Recorder
EMF Detectors
Video camcorder with night vision
Motion Sensors
Flashlights
Digital Thermometer
Compass
Lots and lots of batteries
Log books and journals for each member
Metal Detector

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.

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.



Ghost being Taboo? What is this world comming too? Discrimination i tell ya! The world is a hard place, Vampires get the stake, wearwolves get the silver bullet (as do many bored housewives! ee hee) Us witches get the noose! A messed up place! I just want world peace! :ghost:

Lordy, what don't we have...? Well a lot actually but we carry a lot too. However, since I started doing this, I am tending to streamline what I actually have on my person. Between my husband and myself, what we have IN THE CAR (not necessarily with us) are:

flashlights, lots of them
extra batteries
at least one digital camera
an extra slave flash
nightvision monocular
sony digital camcorder with nightvision
tripod
EMF reader (I hate these, I let hubby use it)
Laser thermometer (no good outdoors)
at least 2 digital voice recorders
walkie talkies
rubber bands/red cellophane (for flashlights)
assorted small tools

I have found I really only need a few things for myself--my digital voice recorders (they confirm each other) and a camera do me just fine. Hubby uses the camcorder and EMF reader and we both carry walkie talkies if we're apart. The nightvision monocular is just a toy that I find useful but it's so small it's difficult to use without blinding myself. LOL!


I forgot to mentch in my last post that we also carry 35mm cameras but I find them too heavy and bulky to lug around. Sometimes I carry disposables, which I am using tomorrow at a practice investigation at local cemetery.

Also, a folding chair is nice to have along! LOL!

I honestly don`t have any....

but I wish I did, I mainly use a camera, and now that I bought a mic that sets up to my comp, I use that as well..

to be quite honest I don`t think one needs all that much to go ghost huinting, that is if they go only for themselves, if you go to show everyone else what you got then of course buy what you can and try to get a good deal on it....:D

You know, I agree with you. I think most of us (not all) are really just doing it out of curiosity and the chance for some really strange adventures. Most of us don't have the capability of setting up truly "scientific" experiments with proper controls, conditions, witnesses, etc. Even if we did, those darn ghosts just don't want to produce results that can be repeated!

Since we do investigations for clients, we try to have the tech stuff but for just myself, I do fine with a camera and a voice recorder. Besides, who can honestly haul all that stuff around and do an adequate job of investigation? You know the original "ghost hunters" like Harry Price just carried a pad and pencil, some string, a knife, some flour, candles, matches and if they were really getting high-tech, a box camera...oh, and maybe a gun! LOL! They did all right with just that.

I use these items regularly...

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


Oh, and a 1977 Dodge van (the Mystery Machine :) ) to carry the crew and gear that everyone brings to the location. :wow:

Ah. Well... I attended Juilliard... I'm a graduate of the Harvard business school. I travel quite extensively. I lived through the Black Plague and had a pretty good time during that. I've seen the EXORCIST ABOUT A HUNDRED AND SIXTY-SEVEN TIMES, AND IT KEEPS GETTING FUNNIER EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEE IT... NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT YOU'RE TALKING TO A DEAD GUY...
