Ghost Hunting Equipment 101



Ghost Hunting Equipment - Every New and Old Ghost Hunter knows what to keep in their gig bag right? Ghost Hunting 101 is a short "How to" to Paranormal Investigations.

Ghost hunting is the process of investigating locations that are reported to be haunted by ghosts.Typically, a ghost hunting team will attempt to collect evidence claimed to be supportive of paranormal activity.

Ghost hunters often utilize a variety of electronic equipment, such as the following types: the EMF meter; digital thermometer; handheld and static digital video cameras, such as thermographic (or infrared) and night vision; digital audio recorder; and computer.


Some organized teams of ghost hunters refer to themselves as paranormal investigators. While many groups claim to utilize scientific methods in their search for the paranormal, science can not confirm the existence of ghosts.

Many ghost-hunting groups say they find evidence of something they can't explain through scientific or natural means, yet critics question ghost-hunting's methodology, particularly its use of instrumentation, as there is no scientifically-proven link between the existence of ghosts and cold spots or electromagnetic fields.

According to skeptical investigator Joe Nickell, the typical ghost hunter is practicing pseudoscience. Nickell says that ghost hunters often arm themselves with EMF meters, thermometers that can identify cold spots, and wireless microphones that eliminate background noise, pointing out the equipment being used to try to detect ghosts is not designed for the job. "The least likely explanation for any given reading is it is a ghost," maintains Nickell.

Orbs of light that show up on photos, he says, are often particles of dust or moisture. "Voices" picked up by tape recorders can be radio signals or noise from the recorder, and EMF detectors can be set off by faulty wiring or microwave towers.


Be aware there is a lot of skepticism in this type of field. Keeping an open mind is always a smart attitude in many things in life and preparing yourself and/or group that there are many people that will have a negative attitude towards this subject and these individuals will speak negatively to you and your group. Nevertheless, you can help make a difference in this field and hopefully even help individuals with paranormal activity they may be experiencing.
