If you were putting together a team from the start and needed to buy equipment, what do you think is the mandatory equipment and quantity? Hardware only.
For me I think it's mainly video and audio equipment:
At least four DARs
At least a four channel DVR system with IR cameras
At least one hand held camcorder
At least one digital camera
One EMF detector
Now I consider this list for a group that is wanting to help clients. If just ghost hunting as a hobby then less is best.
What do you think?
I don't know, bottom line is horses for courses – the case in hand will determine what equipment, if any, could be useful in my mind.
I use to cart a car load of equipment around with me but I soon realised that most of my time was spent setting up, maintaining and dismantling the equipment, leaving little time for in the field investigation itself.
Then, post investigation, all those hours of film, photographs and audio to go through (I confess that I still have hours of tapes to review from investigations I undertook years ago).
A couple of years ago I had an epithany – extreme investigations!
Now I arm myself with just a pen and a notebook (paper), along with an audio recording device and little else. Yes. I usually have a digital SLR and camcorder to hand as well, but these are for mainly location shots and to record certain things.
I've now started to get the enjoyment in investigation back.
Nothing wrong with that. I agree the setting up and dismantling of equipment is the worse part of the job. It's nice to have a team that can help do all this. In the two years since I started this thread we haven't changed much at all. Although we only have three DARs right now.
If anything I am having fun playing with the cell phone apps that are out there. Some do come in handy in the field.
Errr I must confess that I ditched 'the team' a couple of years ago too. I did say it was 'extreme' investigation'…….
I've just got a smart phone myself in the last couple of weeks and although I've looked at some of the apps I'm not at the stage where I can see myself ever using them beyond messing around with them whist I sit in a traffic jam.
The ghost box things are tempting though. I was in the dismissive camp when they first came out, but I've watched from the sidelines and they have begun to pique my interest.
