The video camera plays an important role in paranormal
investigating. Not only does it allow you to document the time and date of your
investigation, but the video camera will provide the strongest form of evidence
in the event of paranormal activity. With the ability to record live action
motion and real-time documentation, its as veritable proof as one can offer
without actually having been present at the time of a paranormal event.

The In order to avoid “Blair Witch” style
investigation videos where your camera is pointed at your feet or is bouncing
wildly in your hand as you stumble through the dark, you must remain constantly
aware and focused on the fact that you are documenting a scientific
investigation. A good rule of thumb is to make an effort to keep your video
camera at eye level to ensure that you are recording the primary field of view
of you and your investigating team. For instance, if you are maintaining the
camera at eye level and you happen to react quickly to a noise or the call of
your teammate, the camera will turn with your head and allows outsiders a chance
to view what you were seeing from a first person point of view. Also, drop the
habit of shooting through your viewfinder, the viewfinder will not only drain
your camera battery at a rapid rate but it will significantly handicap your own
natural night vision, rendering your eyes useless in the dark.

The Most standard consumer camcorders are
equipped with a night-shot function which is designed for shooting in little to
no light. You can increase the effectiveness of a video camera’s night-shot
capability by attaching an additional external IR light to further illuminate
your field of view. True night vision technology exists for more advanced
professional and pro-sumer camcorders but carries a far higher price tag.
Fortunately, for all our practical investigation purposes, a camera’s night-shot
function with the assistance of an IR light remains sufficient and vital
elements of your equipment arsenal.
