For the thrill seekers, here is another another interesting article for you...

Ghost hunting can be a lot of fun and you may even catch something paranormal if you have the right equipment. One valuable piece of equipment is an infrared camera. Here's how to attempt to see a ghost with an infrared camera.

Buy or borrow a good quality infrared camera. Consider renting if you'll only be using it once. Choose one that records, so you can replay anything you may miss or want to see again.

Get to know how an infrared camera works. It allows you to see things you can and cannot see on your own. An infrared camera can detect ghosts by the electromagnetic field they are believed to emanate and can also distinguish between warm objects such as a human, and a ghost which lacks a heat signature. Practice viewing various objects and people to get a feel for how things appear.

Visit a location where at least one ghost has been "sighted." This increases your chances of capturing a ghost with your camera. Take along black and white infrared film when using a non-video camera and remember plenty of batteries as ghosts are known to drain them quickly.

Scan the area you're investigating slowly with the infrared camera. Look with your naked eye at any objects you're unsure of. Pay attention to your feelings as well as what you can see so you know when you must be more alert to what is on the camera. Take pictures one at a time, if not using a infrared camera with a video recorder, so as not to blur the images.

Keep an eye out for any human-shaped objects or anything freestanding. Depending on the camera you're using, these can appear in a variety of colors, but often white and always different from its surroundings when paranormal. Potential paranormal images include full-body apparitions, seat imprints or hand imprints.

Eliminate any other potential things your camera has captured. Dust, bugs, shadows or small animals are all commonly seen through an infrared camera and appear as orbs so rule those out. When you have a human-shaped image you cannot explain away and it's not a reflection of you or someone with you, congratulations, you may have captured a picture of a ghost.

Tips & Warnings

  • A infrared camera that records video is best as it eliminates sudden movements, which can be misinterpreted and it allows you to replay anything you see out of the corner of your eye.
  • Reflections, cigarette smoke, breath, shadows, insects and dust are all commonly mistaken for a ghost so be vigilant in your analysis of your infrared images.
  • Do not use a flash when taking pictures as this can cause many reflections.
