Point and shoot, 1.3 megapixel camera. This is an older model that has been converted (by AngelsGhosts.com) to see in the dark when an IR illuminator is used (not included). Stock cameras are able to see part of the UV and visible light spectrum. The alteration performed on this camera allows its eye to also see into the Infrared spectrum too!
The normal range a camera sees is roughly 340-750nm. This camera conversion allows it to see a maximum potential from about 330nm UV to 1200nm near infrared, effectively expanding the camera's ability to see beyond what the human eye can see!
Due to the camera's lens alteration, it will not produce digital photographs in normal colors. Being an older camera, it will not have the clarity of newer cameras, especially when taking images in low-light conditions.
You might be wondering what's the advantage of using this camera for ghost hunting? When used in low-light conditions (preferred by most ghosts), the camera should be used in conjunction with an Infrared light source (battery powered IR illuminator or an AC powered illuminator) with the flash turned off. This will allow you to take photographs in dark conditions - to the camera it will look like daylight (similar to Sony video camcorders with "night shot"). Additionally, if you do not use the camera's flash unit, it becomes near impossible to capture false orbs caused by dust, moisture and insects (unless you put a light source too close to the camera lens). If you photograph an orb with this camera, it is a good chance it is paranormal! If you place this camera on a tripod, you can extend the exposure time. (Tripod use eliminates false light anomalies, orange-haze, and blurriness caused by slight camera movement.) Remember, this is a point and shoot camera with no zoom and very few features.
This camera does not come with a SmartMedia memory card (available on eBay). Note: It will not record photos without a memory card. Also, it does not come with an owner's manual or USB cable to upload photos to your computer (also available on eBay). It runs on 4 AA batteries (not included).
IR-UV-Visible Light camera conversions are often costly to have done, so this makes this camera a great addition to your ghost investigation toolkit! It should be used primarily indoors or in low-light conditions.
This camera does not come with a warranty or guarantee. Also, we do not take returns, so make sure you understand how this camera is to be used. Being a used camera, it has numerous scratches/abrasions on it. However, we have tested this camera fully after our conversion (see top photos). It turns on and functions as described, but keep in mind that it is in USED condition. *Camera also comes with our sheet of recommendations on how to use it.
