Looking to purchase a tape recorder, got a haunted old cathouse to visit. Seen stuff there, now I hope to get audio!

I had a couple pieces in my very first order for equipment. I wish I knew more at the time. My first order consisted of a digital recorder, 2 EMF detectors, and a flashlight. I've come a long way since. :hug:

My E.L.F. Zone EMF detector. Why? Well, I had to start with something and because one of my friends and I were going ghost hunting for the heck of it, we thought an EMF detector was a decent place to start. I think it cost about $24.95 at lessemf.com, if I'm thinking right. I wasn't going to spend upwards of $50 on a better EMF meter (which I probably couldn't have read in the dark) or over $80 for a digital EMF meter (which I also probably couldn't have read in the dark). The E.L.F. zone has three LEDs that light up when it detects something so I knew I could see it in the dark... daytime on the other hand isn't so good. Not to mention, I don't think I had a lot of money to spend on something that might only be a one-time thing (hey, lets go to one of the oldest cemeteries in the county so we can be there when it turns midnight on Halloween).

When you started doing investigations, what is the first piece of equipment that you purchased and why was that your first choice? Also, what was the general cost of it?

The first investigation that I went on was in an old mental asylum. There was a lot of hazardous material around, including asbestos, so along with the flashlights and batteries we purchased that day, we also bought some masks. The group that we went with had all of the typical equipment, so it was cool to be able to start out small with stuff that was necessary for our safety.

Besides my camera, I bought a cheap emf detector. It only cost me $25 w shipping. The first thing I did was check out my house w it. Lol I found out that my hallway must have tons of wires in the wall, but that was it in my house.

For me it was an old microcassette recorder, even after buying an external mic it is so garbled and all. I now have a much better digital recorder as well as other equipment.
