the digital camera has come down in price to become affordable
to the average person they have become an instant hot favourite
to have in the standard ghost kit. They have numerable positive
attributes such as they can take more photos than their analogue
counterpart, and photos that are taken can be instantly viewed
to see if anything unusual has been captured. If all the photos
are clear then the memory card can be quickly erased and reused,
thus eliminating the need of film and processing. However,
there are also big, negative sides to the use of digital cameras
as well (as outlined in the 'Digital Cameras' article on this
site) and as such their usefullness in the world of paranormal
research is in question. However, they are perfect for instantly
recording the original positions of experiments and trigger
objects if leaving a camera running on them proves impossible.
If something looks like it has been moved then the original,
initial pohoto can be instantly reviewed to see if anything
has indeed moved. It is always good to get a decent digital
camera if you're looking to get one for paranormal investigation.
If something actually was caught in a photo then you'd want
to be able to zoom the photo in as close as possible without
losing quality; having a 1m pixel camera would be useless.
Always go for the biggest number of pixels for the best detail
possible and always try to buy cameras from brands that are
exclusive in photography such as Fujifilm and Kodak. The digital
cameras we use are the Fujifilm Finepix S5000, Fujifilm Finepix
S5500 amongst other, smaller compact cameras.
