Used 7.1 megapixel (Grape) Vivitar 7022 FULL SPECTRUM ghost hunting camera conversion with zoom. This is a used camera that has been converted (by AngelsGhosts.com) to see in the dark when an IR illuminator is used (not included). [The above photos were shot in dark conditions using only an A/C powered blacklight bulb as the illuminator. To the camera, the room appeared illuminated.] 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!
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 a new camera of 5.1 megapixels, it will have better clarity than our older (1.3 and 2.1 megapixel) IR converted cameras.
You might be wondering what advantage this altered camera brings to 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!
This camera does not come with an SD memory card (available on eBay or from electronics stores), owner's manual, or any accessories except a strap. Note: You will need an SD memory card. A USB cable is not necessary to upload photographs if your computer has an SD card reader built-in. This digital, full spectrum ghost hunting camera runs on 3 AAA 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. CONDITION: This camera has numerous scratches on the LCD screen, the button is sticky and the camera processes a bit slower. It is grape in color. We have tested this camera fully after our conversion. It turns on and functions as described. Purchaser should keep in mind that it is considered a USED camera. This used model is an inexpensive unit to have as a second full spectrum camera in the tool kit or one to begin experimenting with. *Camera also comes with our sheet of recommendations on how to use it.
7.1 Megapixel Vivitar 7022 Camera Conversion contains a 7.1 megapixel chip, and the fixed lens has a 4x digital zoom. Has a 1.8" LCD view screen to compose your photos.
