How to Use A Thermal Camera In A Ghost Investigation

Thermal cameras are a popular piece of equipment used in ghost investigations currently. The purpose of the thermal camera in a paranormal investigation is to catch anomalies that we normally wouldn't see with our own eyes. Thermal cameras, also called infrared cameras, measure temperature readings in a given environment with dark purple or blue for cold and orange, red and white for hot readings.

Before going on an investigation, make sure you are familiar with your equipment that you have chosen. Not knowing how to properly use your thermal camera while investigating can waste a lot of time and make you look uncredible.

First, turn on the thermal camera and change the sensitivity level as high as you can and max out the view distance so you don't miss any paranormal phenomenon. Next, do a thermal walkthrough at your location where the most haunted activity has been documented. You wouldn't want to do a thermal sweep on an area that hasn't had any activity, but if you have time at the end then it wouldn't be a problem at that point.

If you think you see something on the thermal camera that doesn't look normal, take a look at it with a flashlight or see what that object is that might be giving you a weird reading. If there is nothing there try getting closer to see if the spot on the camera will become more clearer.

If you think you see an apparition, don't be alarmed. Most claims of apparitions are false positives anyway, so investigate first to see if you might have been mistaken. A lot of surfaces can pick you up and you can see yourself as a reflection on the camera's screen. If there is not a person in front of you or no reflective surfaces, that's when you investigate the apparition more closely.

If you see an anomaly but it moves, slowly pan your camera in the direction it moved in a smooth sweep, so if the anomaly is indeed moving and you can catch it on film, you won't miss its tracks or lose sight of where it went.

Thermal cameras are a really important piece of equipment that an investigator can use to catch paranormal phenomenon that he or she wouldn't normally see with their naked eyes. Scientific equipment is not being used to detect ghosts and to find out the real source of the phenomenon. Maybe one day these entities can be scientifically explained.
