The "kits" they offer, even at $149, don't contain what would really be needed to do a serious investigation. You would do better to forego any kit and simply purchase quality equipment from reliable sources as you can afford it.
I personally advise anyone starting out to specialize. That is, don't try to take on EVP, video, photography all at once. Choose one area and get the best camera, or recorder, depending on your chosen area of study, you can afford. If you want to do EVPs,spend a couple hundred and get a good stereo recorder. If you want to do photography, get a good quality camera. But don't try to cover everything unless you can afford to spend several hundred $$$ right up front. Otherwise you will be like many, getting a lot of poor quality, inconclusive evidence, and you'll find yourself wanting to upgrade soon. That will just add to the overall cost of equipment.

I'm not really looking into the high tech must have stuff. I'm not even old enough to investigate yet, so it's not really one of my concerns. I just want to get familiar with the equipment so by the time I can use, and afford, good equipment, I'll be ready. So its a no no for the site? Because I would shop at Ghost-Mart, but it's a little bit out of my price range...
You don't need a ton of equipment to start. Your eyes and a basic camera (digital or film) will suffice in the beginning. Just remember not to fall for the "they use it on TV, so that must be what I need" nonsense. There's no need to "go dark" like they do for dramatic effect on TV, in fact, most sightings are during the day. Also, much less chance of problems with evidence if your camera is used during the day (orbs caused by dust by using flash, etc.) Basic point and shoot-type cameras work much better during daylight hours. The flash is too weak to be much use at night, especially outdoors. Keep in mind that some of the best photographic evidence was taken with these types of cameras, by people just taking everyday snapshots. Forget K-2 meters, and most EMF meters in general. They prove nothing, and are usually just reacting to various man-made sources of EM energy.
