Best Camera for Taking Photos of Ghosts?
I've received a lot of questions about how to photograph ghosts and several people have asked me for camera recommendations. Ray writes, "What is the best camera to use to capture a ghost?"
Waide has a similar question. He asks, "What are the best types of cameras to catch good evidence and how are they used most effectively?"
I recommend using a digital camera with 5 or more megapixels. I have a personal preference for Sony—however, Canon and Kodak also make good, reliable cameras. If you're not comfortable with digital cameras, you can always use a regular 35 mm camera. If you decide to use a 35 mm camera, be sure to purchase film that is 400 speed or higher. If possible, buy a camera that has Nightshot (for infrared photos). Many of the Sony Cybershot cameras have nightshot (also called "night vision" or "infrared illuminator"), which will allow you to capture clear photos in dark or dim lighting.
Do you own a camera that you would recommend for ghost hunting? If so, feel free to leave a comment below. I will be writing more about using cameras in the field.
