Paranormal Research Equipment - What You Need And Why
You don't need to spend hundreds of dollars on paranormal research equipment to be able to conduct a proper investigation. Most things you need you will have just lying around the house. To make a success of your paranormal research and hopefully find something new you will need to be well prepared and organised before starting your investigation. The main five items you will need are: a torch, an analogue or digital recorder, a camera, a watch and a computer with the appropriate software.
1. The right torch
Finding a torch is easy, everyone has one. Just make sure that the torch you have is powerful enough to light up entire backgrounds and doesn't just have a narrow beam.
2. Analogue and digital recorders
Most people will have these just around the house. If you have an old tape recorder that will do, just make sure that you have enough blank tapes to use. I prefer using digital recorders as they can usually hold more sound and are far easier to transfer to a computer.
3. A decent camera
Again, everyone has a camera. It's best to use a digital camera if you can rather than film. If you have a 35mm they will have a sharper picture, also a digital camera can hold more photos. And let's not forget they are far faster and cheaper to transfer to a computer for analysis.
4. A watch or clock
This is probably the most important part of paranormal research equipment. When anything happens in an investigation you should always without a doubt make a not of the time and occurrence. This can then be cross referenced with other results.
5. Report software
Coming across as a professional is very important n this industry if you want to be taken seriously. Their are programs online that allow you to present a clear analysis of paranormal data to show people. It also helps when it comes to cross referencing and having general storage for what you have found.
As you can see from this list, most things you will need you will already have or will be able to get hold of pretty easily. The next step is finding other like minded people to go out with and making sure they have the right paranormal research equipment.
