Night Vision cameras are a must for any ghost hunting crew. When it comes to the paranormal tools are extremely important. And with a night vision camera you can see things that your standard camera will miss.
Night vision is the ability to see in low light conditions. Whether by biological or technological means, night vision is made possible by a combination of two approaches: sufficient spectral range, and sufficient intensity range. Humans have poor night vision compared to many animals, in part because the human eye lacks a tapetum lucidum.
The tapetum lucidum is a layer of tissue in the eye of many vertebrates. Lying immediately behind the retina it reflects visible light back through the retina, increasing the light available to the photoreceptors though blurring the initial image of the light on focus. And since humans lack this ability then we need cameras to help us see at night.
Before the introduction of image intensifiers, night glasses were the only method of night vision, and thus were widely utilized, especially at sea. Second World War era night glasses usually had a lens diameter of 56 mm or more with magnification of seven or eight. Major drawbacks of night glasses are their large size and weight.
Some cameras we can look at are:
Bushnell – Trophy HD Wireless 8.0-Megapixel Night-Vision Trail Camera
Bell and Howell – DNV16HDZ 1080p Camera/Camcorder with Night Vision + 16GB Card + Case + Tripod + LED Light + Acc Kit
Whatever choice you make in your night vision selection of camera, make sure you have the entire kit.
The above are good starter cameras. Spirit photography is a type of photography whose primary attempt is to capture images of ghosts and other spiritual entities, especially in ghost hunting and has a strong history dating back to the late 19th century.
YOU NEED THE RIGHT TOOL FOR THE JOB. YOU NEED THE RIGHT TOOL FOR THE JOB. You do not need a night vision camera to be able to see a ghost but, it sure helps. Night vision cameras really help to show the details in ORBS and light anomalies.
Active infrared night-vision combines infrared illumination of spectral range 700–1,000 nm (just below the visible spectrum of the human eye) with CCD cameras sensitive to this light. The resulting scene, which is apparently dark to a human observer, appears as a monochrome image on a normal display device. Because active infrared night-vision systems can incorporate illuminators that produce high levels of infrared light, the resulting images are typically higher resolution than other night-vision technologies.
Anyway, I started this conversation, if you have anything to add please comment.
