It offers comprehensive recording capabilities in any situation, and a large LCD and single-function buttons on the front and 250-milliwatt speaker output make it easy to use. This is a tested and approved recorder that has captured 35 evps in 7hrs 15mins of cemetary hunts done in the darkness of night. It has also captured 2 evps in todd's house in a simple 1min 24sec recording. The method our group has had the most success with is the recorder in hand. We've tried the faraday cage and germanium diode method with no success yet, but it is still in experimental phase. We have tryed the white noise method and again have gotten nothing yet. We will not abandon these methods by no means, but have found a tested and approved technique in simply carrying the recorder and asking questions. We also use analog recorders and its said in the feild that you get louder but shorter evps with this recorder than the digital which is said to get longer but quieter evps. My favorite thing about the electronic voice phonomonem is it is a proven sceince of contact with the afterlife and I pride my research mainly on recording this anomally. Evp research is a cheap and exciting feild. You can buy this recorder displayed above at walmart for forty five bucks . Then all you do is push record in your home or go to cemeteries, or where ever you choose. Say nothing or ask questions, its your tool to experiment with. Try it at a loved ones grave, they may just surprise you skeptics!

This is the Canon A560 camera with night shot. We use it in search of orb's, apparation's, and mist's. All you need is a digital camera or 35mm camera. The 35mm can be as affordable as a disposable camera or of higher quality, they work the same on every level for what were doing. If you have a digital camera person and a 35mm camera person seeing as how the digital can shoot a 100 plus pics, you should locate the orb, mist, or apparation with it, then have the 35mm person shoot were you think you got something seeing as how you usally have up to 24 pics on a roll of 35mm film. This way there is a negative to go back to. Plus double verification that what you captured on film was there. Try to have one of both, we still lack this in our group but are working towards obtaining more equiptment to aide our research.
Every ghost hunter needs a flashlight with infared vision. This allows you to see in the dark without losing your night vision. A normal flashlight will ruin your eye adjustment to the dark the minute you turn it on, making you blind until your eyes can focus back to the night. This is a cheap buy at eight bucks and a need in the feild.
There is no instrument that is used as frequently in paranormal reserarch as an electromagnetic field meter. The CellSensor is a low cost , high quality analog meter that will aid researchers in the location of "hot spots" in any location. the external probe makes it simple to eliminate the false positives cause by naturally occurring or man made variations in the electromagnetic field.

A thermal gun is essential for any researcher in that it can give you proof of tempatures out of the ordinary. If a member thinks they feel cold, its nothing but a claim that can't be verified. With this tool you can point shoot and get a reading to confirm there surrounding tempature and put sceince to prove your members thoughts to be true. If you are in a room that is 78 degrees and you get a temp of 58 degrees and you can prove the no draft theory, then you have confirmed something paranormal. This is a sixty five dollar peice of equiptment but definetly worth it to build a better base of evidence. Find a spot that is ten degrees lower than the room with the draft theory not a possiblity, your on to something.
A radio shack amplifier that aides in better listening of our evps. This is a good piece of equiptment for blocking outside noise while your interpeting your evps and was very affordable at a mere 25 bucks.
A white noise cd and a cheap portable cd player come in handy for our research into the white noise method of recording evps. So far we've had no success getting evps with this method, but we will continue hopefully with some progress in the near future.
Batteries are the most important thing you need on any investigation, because without them your equiptment is useless. Ghost are known for draining batteries for they use this energy to manifest in the form of orbs, mist, evps, or just to let you know there with you. Sometimes your camera dies and you can turn it right back on and the battery display bar says that the fresh batteries you just put in are almost dead so make sure you bring plenty of them.
A log book is vital to keeping track of your hunts. Dates, time logged, and team that perticipated are essential for keeping fresh in your mind your hunt on any given specific date. You should also log your pictures and evp's by book so you never get confused because the deeper you get into your research the more difficult its gonna be to remember what happend on your first hunt. Our last hunt you will notice i started keeping track of moon cycles and tempatures outside to see if there is a trend in activity for the better or worse. Also if your computer ever crashe's, you will still have a source of record in a worse case scenerio. So keep good records.
