As you might imagine, we use a lot of ghost hunting gear and follow what’s going on with gear trends and makers quite closely. We follow what is popping up new, test out all of it and offer our advice with our listing of the best gear for 2017 for the starter ghost hunter right up to the pro paranormal investigator.

TOP 10 Gear Guide for Ghost Hunters

 

evp-evpband2-view2$     EVP Wrist Recorder 2 – the NEW EVP wrist recorder is an audio recorder you can wear. Audio recording is a necessity for any investigation. This band is great for the starter all the way up to the pro because it’s easy to use and records great quality audio. Even though it’s compact the quality is competitive with some of the high-end, more expensive recorders. We use this for everything.

 

$     Rook EMF Meter – the NEW EMF meter with sound and some great features. Plus, it looks darn cool and comes with a tool case.

 

Trigger-BooBuddy2-EMF-Bear$$   BooBuddy Interactive Bear – it may sound odd to use a teddy bear on ghost hunts, but this bear is FULL of features hidden behind the cute face. This bear does what a lot of the other tools do – but all in one package. Oh, and it talks. Take a look at BooBuddy for an all-in-one tool that ghost hunters absolutely adore. There are just way too many features to list here. Watch the VIDEO!

 

$      GS1 Laser Grid – this is what a laser grid is meant to be. The GS1 laser grid system has been around over a decade and but still holds true as one of the best ways to capture and document video evidence with clarity and spacial information. This unit is the reason the commonly-seen dots pen has been referred to as a laser grid, even though it’s not a grid at all. It all started with the GS1.

 

camcorder-fspovcam-view2$$    GhostStop POV Cam – this camcorder is full spectrum which is able to see in complete darkness used by paranormal investigators on cases. It’s a lot like a GoPro in quality and size but with full spectrum night vision capability. It’s recently been upgraded with 4K resolution and a new low-light lens. This is definitely not your typical off-the-shelf camcorder clone. This video camera is specifically made with specs we need as investigators designed by real, experienced investigators.

 

$$$  EDI+ Multi Meter – the NEW EDI+ has many tools all in one package plus a great graphing feature. The greatest benefit of this new model is the added ability to record the data from your investigations. It takes data readings from all of its sensors and creates a log which you can graph on your computer in review.

 

$$$   Trifield Natural Meter – though the Trifield has been around for some years, it is still considered the most precise and effective tool for the pro ghost hunter.

360ghostcam-view4

 

$$$   360 Ghost Cam – this NEW 360-degee camera captures it all in full spectrum night vision. This is the most advanced camcorder for ghost hunting and is easy to use with an app that’s WiFi enabled. It has tons of cool features including live viewing from your phone/tablet, Virtual Reality (VR) capability, GPS and so much more. It’s feature packed, high tech coolness all in the size of a baseball. It’s seriously awesome!

 

$$$  Video Camera with Light Package – this camcorder is full spectrum which is able to see in complete darkness used by paranormal investigators on cases. This package includes a dual-mode light and mounting needed for great shots.

 

Product-EMF-Mel-Meter-8704R$  Mel Meter – this digital EMF meter also includes temperature readings. Mel meters are a great step up from the beginner meters such as the K2 and ELF.

 

 

 

 What to watch for…

There is always new equipment on the horizon. Though there are a handful of traditional makers of ghost hunting equipment, only a few continue to be coming up with new ideas. One, in particular, is GhostStop. They are always announcing something new and advanced. We have spoken to Shawn who informs us that a great, new evolution is right around the corner – potentially later this year. To keep up with them follow them on their Facebook page.

We all love a good ghost hunt and convention events are the coolest way to spend a whole weekend hanging with like-minded folks. Most conventions will have some kind of ghost hunt involved throught the event. Some of these have become a ‘family reunion’ of sorts for fellow investigators. Even if you’ve never investigated before these events are a great place to start, meet new friends, learn about the field, join a team or just have a blast.
