A review by CinemaSerf

Written by cinemaserf on june 13, 2022.

Henry Kendall is chemist "John Gray" who discovers a mysterious camera in the back of his car. When he develops the film, he finds a photo showing a gruesome murder scene alongside those of a woman whom he determines to trace. What ensues now is a romantic, gently comedic, thriller with a couple of decent performances including an engaging few coroners court scenes with the accused John Mills and Felix Aylmer (the coroner). It also features (fleetingly) Ida Lupino as Mills' well meaning wife. Kendall made his name on the stage, and his performance here is a bit over-egged; indeed it takes a bit... read the rest.

The Ghost Camera

  • About The Book
  • About The Author

The Ghost Camera  is a gripping sci-fi thriller in which a British hi-tech start-up accidentally discover an alternative use for one of their inventions – by creating a tiny, momentary black hole in a lab, they can capture images that defy all attempts to explain them.

Morris is a laboratory janitor in Oxford and is perfectly happy with his lot. Nearing retirement, he has no desire to try anything new: he prefers to bumble along, keeping a low profile. That works well until he does an extra shift at the start-up he works for, Chipperau Fusioneering. Instead of receiving money, he gets paid in apparently worthless shares.

Soon after, the company begins to attract attention, its reputation moving outside the academic bubble, into the science nerd bubble and then into wider public fame. With this rise in profile, there is a corresponding rise in the share price. The world, and in particular speculative investors, are increasingly interested in what Chipperau Fusioneering and their sister company FrameWarp are up to.

The initial attempt to build a micro fusion reactor that would produce cheap, environmentally friendly energy is a failure. But they soon discover the tech they have built possesses a function they never planned for – it can be adapted into an image capture device that sees through time, not space, revealing what appear to be other versions of our world. Dubbed the ‘Ghost Camera’, soon the lines between the device’s supporters and detractors are drawn and battle commences. And right in the middle of it all stands Morris, the unlikeliest of heroes…

Told through Morris’s own observations, but also through clippings from newspapers, tech magazines and websites from all over the world –  The Ghost Camera offers a Black Mirror -style parable about where technology might lead us.

In all my experiences cleaning labs and offices for academics, nothing got the attention of journalists as much as Chipperau Fusioneering. I’m now very glad I kept a file on a solid hard drive my niece Carla gave me. She taught me how to find the stories, download them and store them on the drive which I have kept in a secure location because I didn’t know who might want to keep the story of the ghost camera quiet.

Lencho of the Apes

Review by Lencho of the Apes ★★★

Most of it is like a horror/old dark house/suspense thriller written by Wodehouse, with an astonishingly! derpy Bertie Wooster type in the 'detective' slot, but some scenes toward the end play everything a bit straighter, and the eexpressionist/proto-noir elements that come forward are kinda compelling. Except there's still all that goofy comedy happening.

🇵🇱 Steve G 🇵🇸

Review by 🇵🇱 Steve G 🇵🇸 ★★★½

A thoroughly enjoyable early English talkie where bumbling and amusingly verbose Henry Kendall sets off to find the owner of a mysterious camera that lands on his car.

Accompanying him on his adventure is Ida Lupino, in one of her earliest roles. Apparently Lupino was only 15 when The Ghost Camera was released, which makes her courtship with Kendall, over double her age, somewhat troublesome by today's standards to say the very least.

You also get a young John Mills, as her troubled brother, and David Lean also did the editing. The latter would certainly explain some of the fascinating cuts here, especially during the film's remarkable opening scene. The whole story is played for a fair few laughs, as you'd expect with Kendall in the lead, but it's swift and entertaining with some impressive stylistic flair behind it.

louferrigno

Review by louferrigno ★★ 1

It's a hard fact to dispute that when it comes to the vast amount of national film industries that occupy and tell stories from around the world, the United States crushes the hell out of the competition and is by far the most prolific when it comes to films that have a greater impact on potential viewers by way of greater means of distribution and the amount of money poured into America's films. Even as early as the 1920's the United Kingdom had to face this fact, as out of all the theaters across said European country, 5% of showtimes were dedicated to British films and this created enough of a slump to shut down many British film studios. The…

loureviews

Review by loureviews ★★★

An interesting quota quickie which follows a similar plot point to the classic Blow-up , where a photograph may or may not contain evidence of a murder.

Henry Kendall is his usual blundering and bumbling type, although it suits his character here more than most, and a teenage Ida Lupino shines in one of her first roles: just fifteen, she has a lot of poise and charm.

Bernard Vorhaus directs, and this is a solid entry in a career which took him across two continents and into Hollywood. He could clearly work quickly and effectively, and although this is 'rather British', it may well benefit from the American touch.

The Ghost Camera may move slowly, and a lack of musical motif…

Craig Wilson

Review by Craig Wilson ★★★

Love this film. It's crafted in such an innocent, direct and pleasing manner but with just enough tongue in cheek balanced with some very smart imagery. Just good clean fun. And of course, Ida Lupino is wonderful at any age whether acting or directing, here she’s only 15.

Niall Urquhart

Review by Niall Urquhart ★★★½

I primarily watched this for Ida Lupino who was very different from her noir heyday but she was only fifteen so was pretty impressive as her character must have been a few years older. But I ended up quite enjoying the film. There's a lot of really interesting camerawork. The narrative is very rushed but it's pretty good too. I suspect the film works or not on whether you can tolerate Henry Kendall's performance which is awfully English. His extreme bumbling verbosity was a bit of a shock at first but I warmed to him and therefore to the film.

Michael_Elliott

Review by Michael_Elliott ★★½

John Gray (Henry Kendall) finds a camera in the back of his car and when he develops the film he discovers that it might contain the image of a murder.

THE GHOST CAMERA is a British mix of detective work, comedy and a few elements of horror. The film would probably be even more forgotten than it is if it wasn't for the fact that it features a 15-year-old Ida Lupino and it was also edited by a young David Lean.

As far as the film itself goes, it's a decent "B" picture if you enjoy these things. The film is certainly very much British as it is a bit wooden and especially compared to this type of film that was being made in America at the time. It does, however, feature a fun set-up and the two leads at least keep it mildly interesting.

Jumpingfrog

Review by Jumpingfrog ★★★

Nice little British murder mystery, with typically for the time plenty of comedy and with Ida Lupino in her first substantial role (and an almost as young John Mills as her brother.) Mild mannered Henry Kendell comes into the possession of a camera and finds one of the photos shows a murder. He goes in pursuit rather than to the police or there wouldn't have been a story.

wyh

Review by wyh ★★½

i keep forgetting i've watched it and need to log it which says a lot probably. mainly just kind of okay. the male lead's going to be a deeply mediocre husband if he continues that emotionally constipated

Zoë

Review by Zoë ★★★

‘I don’t know why I continue to go on holiday’ is a precursor to ‘we’ve gone on holiday by mistake’

Favourite moments include serious use of the word ‘erroneously’, and my favourite old-timey phrase that I’m desperate to bring back into conversation: ‘I say!’ (used in exclamation)

(Also, David Lean as Editor!)

Richard Cross

Review by Richard Cross ★★★

A routine quota quickie murder mystery starring Henry Kendall that is notable now only for early appearances from 15-year-old Ida Lupino (playing Kendall's love interest!) and John Mills. Kendall finds a camera, and after developing the film inside, realises that it contains the possible clues to a murder. He then uses the other photos on the film to track down the killer.

Don’t go in ur attic with friends

I was walking outside when my friends asked me to come play I said sure and we went in my house and they said that they wanted to do something scary today so then I said sure we walked upstairs and they said let’s go in your attic I told him that I don’t like to go in my attic because last time I went up there something weird was happened to my phone it was going off like crazy they said that they like paranormal stuff so then we just walked right up into my attic then when we walked up there they said that since we’re having a sleepover that we should sleep in the attic and when we slept in the attic my friends name Amelia pulled out her phone and went on this ghost detector app which is this exact app and she was pointing it around the attic and there was five ghosts in my own attic and we talked to all five of them we asked if they were evil and they all said no we talked for a while and then one said Tony breakfast which was kind of spectacle because I was really hungry at the time So when it was morning we all went downstairs and we all went to go have pancakes for breakfast but right as my friend Shay started to go into her pancake there was a horsefly in her pancake end it flew out of the pan cake and since it got crushed it left some of his guts on Shay‘s pancake and then that’s what I noticed that the ghosts are real and that whatever they say trust them and do not do whatever they say😰😰😰😰😰😰😰😰😰😰

is this real..?

so, me and my friend downloaded this to entertain us during coronavirus. After all, we do online school. We’ve always been into ghosts and stuff like that! We read the reviews and decided to get this app. The second day we downloaded the app, I decided to use it. I was laying in my bed and rotating my phone around me. Suddenly, the app detected something next to my desk. I decided to ask it the question: are you good or evil? It responded with “Let’s just say i like to make people... squirm”. I asked it a few more questions like “what is your name” “when were you born” and “why have you come here”. I asked it my final question, “do you want to hurt me”. It responded with “Bend you til’ you break... get you all twisted up in knots. Sounds like a plan to me.” Which I started to get a little scared after hearing... I was talking to my friend who also downloaded the app about it. When I had a thought, this evil spirit could have been the crooked man, which I accidentally summoned earlier this year. If you don’t know much about the crooked man, sorry but I won’t be explaining. I also have another story that happened with my friend. I was on a call with her at the time when she was using the app. We ended up finding a ghost that follow the same exact details like age, relationship status, where she lives, name, and gender as the previous owner of her house!! This creeped both of us out... if you’re into this type of stuff, I definitely would recommend!!

Uhh so something happened

(4 stars because of all the ads sorry) I downloaded this app to troll my friends, and I thought I deleted it afterwards, until my Siri said “opened around this time” in that little section, so that was a little odd. I decided to check it out because I forgot what it was like, and I was on my couch. It has a limited detection space, and I saw what it calls itself a poltergeist getting nearer, so I asked a few questions. It said it died around 1930, about 10 years after my home was built. (It is 100 years old) and it said it was evil and a male. After asking more questions, I got the premium ad so I had to quit out of it and go back in, leaving the unsaved data. Right? No. When I went back in, the camera was broken and in the same position, I saw them again, and the questions were not working, until they eventually left. Then the questions worked, and I suddenly got cold. I was confused, since I could not see anything while rotating my phone. Then I looked at the radar. It was at my position. It had dark hair, but that’s pretty much all I could see. I asked some questions beforehand, with them answering they got in a car crash not far from here, with two friends, and it all adds up. I got freaked out and quit the app. Edit: after writing this I checked the app again, and she’s still here.

Ghost Hunting Cameras

Arguably the most important piece of equipment in a ghost hunter’s kit, a reliable camera is of the utmost importance when tracking the supernatural.

The ideal ghost hunting camera can enable you to both detect and record visual anomalies, or potential paranormal activity, while obtaining high-quality video.

How to Record Ghosts and Possible Spirits on Camera

Once you’ve gotten the necessary gear, it’s important to utilize it properly.

Ghost hunting cameras feature night vision properties, allowing you to pick up infrared images and avoid using too much light.

It’s also a good call to set up motion detectors and stationary cameras in areas with high paranormal activity.

Establish a Perimeter with Static Cameras

If you want the best camcorder for investigations, look no further than the Phasm Cam Full Spectrum Night Vision Video Camera .

The versatility this camera brings is incredible and even has a magnetic mounting feature that offers options in where you can place it.

Don’t worry about filming in the dark, as it has built-in IR light for night vision capability.

This camera is a great option for low-light filming situations, but it also empowers you to go full spectrum with your choice of lighting.

Be Prepared for Any Scenario with Ghost Camera Accessories

No ghost adventurer should begin an investigation with cameras alone. GhostStop has the best accessory gear to guarantee success on your next expedition.

Our Phasm Full Spectrum Night Vision Camera Light provides more than just basic light. Phasm offers so many lighting options all in one convenient sized device with adjustability on the controls on the back. Its mounting system allows you to attach to a tripod or bracket but also magnetize to metal.

Speaking of mounting systems, our Flexible Tripod features non-slip gripping legs that allow for full 360 degree control. The tripod has protective foam shelling, giving this product some serious longevity.

Energize Your Gear with a Power Pack

Don’t forget to bring some extra juice on your ghost hunting trips. We have our USB Power Pack that includes a 20,000 mAh high capacity storage and can even let you charge and use two devices at once.

Capture Visual Phenomena with Ghost Cameras from GhostStop

With the aid of a night vision and full spectrum ghost camera, you can detect visual anomalies or potential paranormal activity with high-quality images. While night vision allows you to view unseen infrared light (IR), full spectrum is a new technology specifically designed for ghost hunting.

It empowers you to see far beyond our normal sight range and into areas of the light spectrum in which, theories suggest, ghosts reside. These cameras pair nicely with a laser grid or a spike sensor, combining motion sensor technology with full spectrum cameras.

Catching apparitions is easy with our line of ghost cameras for sale. Please contact us regarding any questions you may have. We pride ourselves on both designing and testing our equipment.

The Haunted Y.M.C.A. - Rock Island, Illinois

The Haunted Rock Island Y.M.C.A. has become a paranormal hot spot on Paranormal Researches Bucket List. It has a mischievous past, including being a brothel, speakeasy with ties to the mob.

The Stephenson Building- Wymore, Nebraska

Featured on shows like Portals To Hell this haunted location definitely has a very checkered past. Not only is it a strange and bizarre haunt but now a museum as well. Its two owners have worked tirelessly to build a unique collection of creepy curiosities and unusual oddities now on display for guests to experience. Obviously, a sketchy history combined with its bizarre contents makes this a heavily energized location.

The most famous ghost photographs ever taken.

Ghosts, the paranormal and the supernatural have always been debated. Do they exist? Are the photos the proof?

Ghosts, the paranormal and the supernatural have always been debated. Do they exist?

Many people have reported sightings before, but without any real proof, they're usually disregarded as mere stories. Being able to take photos of spirits obviously helps the cause, but are all of them real or have some been doctored?

Here is a round-up of the most famous "ghost" photos of all-time. Some have been faked no doubt, but they look so good on first inspection they could definitely convert some non-believers.

  • Weird and wonderful views captured via Google Earth
  • 14 weird and wonderful tech concepts and inventions that were well before their time

Catherine Howard - 1800s

This image purports to show Catherine Howard, the fifth wife of King Henry VIII who was executed for adultery in 1542. She is said to haunt the Horn Room at Hampton Court Palace.

Naturally, these sorts of images are usually spoofed through double-exposure.

An unexpected guest - 1950s

Two boys sit happily on their mother's laps but a pretty terrifying and unexpected guest has also dropped in. Hanging disturbingly from the rafters.

The Ghost Pilot - 1987

In 1987, Mrs Sayer was visiting air airfield in England with her friend. She thought it would fun to take a photo of her sitting in the cockpit.

When the image was developed, there was a man sitting in the pilot's seat who hadn't been there when the photo was taken. A long lost pilot? No one is sure.

Boot Hill Ghost - 1996

Only Ike Canton's friend was seen when this photo was taken, The mysterious man wearing a hat behind him wasn't. Canton later looked more closely at the photo and decided the figure was in fact holding a knife, with the point ending just above his collar.

Goddard’s Squadron - Freddy Jackson - 1919

This image was taken by Sir Victor Goddard, of his squadron in 1919.

The ghostly image behind the fourth sailor from the left, at the top, is believed to be of Freddy Jackson. Jackson died a few days before the photo was taken by walking into a moving propeller.

Amityville Ghost - 1976

This photo, taken by Ed and Lorraine Warren, claims to show the ghost of 9-year-old John DeFeo.

DeFeo, along with his other brother, two sisters and parents, was killed by his older brother Ronald at their house in Amityville. Ed and Lorraine Warren were paranormal experts who entered the house and captured this image using a camera that consistently took infrared photos during the night.

The DeFeo murders were the inspiration for The Amityville Horror books and films .

Coventry Spectre - 1985

At first glance, you'd think there's nothing wrong with this photo. But look again, and you'll see a tall, dark figure wearing what could be a monk's frock, with a hood, in the top left.

This is a photo of the Coventry Freeman society showing everyone at the event, including the mysterious figure, bowing their heads. Nobody at the event was seen wearing that style of clothing.

Grandpa’s Ghost - August 1997

Somehow this lady's husband managed to appear in this photo despite passing away seven years before.

Denise Russell took this photo of her grandma, who lived alone at the time, on 17 August 1997.

Even though the photo had been developed, copied and given to other family members, nobody noticed the male figure standing over her until Christmas Day 2000. The Russell family say it's a spitting image of their grandpa who died in 1984.

Pawling Fire Department - 1988

The white figure in this photo is believed to be some sort of angel, overlooking Rose Benvenuto, who was involved in the car crash.

She said it could only have taken a miracle for her to survive the crash, and lo and behold, there's an angel-like figure in attending firefighter Sharon Boo's photo.

The Back Seat Ghost - March 1959

This photo was taken by Mabel Chinnery in 1959. It shows her husband in his car, but who is allegedly her dead mother-in-law on the back seat.

While paranormalists believe it to be real, others have debunked it as being a case of double exposure.

Mrs Andrews baby - 1947

This photo of a child appearing over a grave was taken by Mrs Andrews in 1947. She noticed the ghost when she had the film developed, but said it wasn't her daughter in the picture.

Despite there being some graves for children nearby, the child in the picture has never been identified.

The SS Watertown - 1924

This image taken from the SS Watertown shows the faces of two crewmen, James Courtney and Michael Meehan in the water. The two men died while onboard the ship and were given a burial at sea.

Other crew members on the ship saw the faces in the water but didn't initially take photos, they went back to a similar spot and saw them again. Five of the six photos showed nothing, but this was the sixth and clearly shows the faces of two men.

Newby Church - 1963

Some analysts think this photo taken at Newby Church in North Yorkshire, England is a fake because the character looks to be posing too much.

However, Reverend K.F. Lord insists there was nothing visible to the naked eye when he took the photo, and photo experts say it hasn't been double exposed.

Toys 'R' Us - 1978

The Toys 'R' Us store in Sunnyvale, California is allegedly haunted by the ghost of Johnny Johnson, and this image shows a silhouette leaning up against the shelves.

The same figure wasn't there when the photo was taken. The story goes that Johnny had a thing for a girl named Elizabeth, the daughter of a plantation owner - the plantation used to be on the Toys 'R' Us site - Johnny bled to death after cutting himself chopping wood, and now roams the aisles of the store searching for her.

St Botolph's Church - 1982

In the top right of this photo you can see a figure who apparently bears a similarity to someone that had recently been buried nearby.

If you look carefully in the upper right-hand corner of this photo, you can just make out a translucent figure. It was taken at St. Boltoph's Church in 1982, and at the time, there were only three people in the building.

A builder later contacted Chris Brackley, who took the photo, to tell him he recognised the face as being the same as someone he'd previously seen in a coffin in the church.

Worstead Church - 1975

Another church, another ghostly visitor. This ghost has been reported as being seen before in this location too.

Peter Berthelot took this picture of his wife, Diane, sitting on a pew at the Worstead Church in Norfolk, England in 1975. When they had the film developed, they noticed a ghost sitting on the pew behind Diane.

A man allegedly stayed in the church all night sometime in 1830 to try and disprove the theory of ghosts, but he claimed the following morning he had in fact seen the white lady seen in this picture.

Lord Combermere - 1891

This image taken of the library at Combermere Abbey in Cheshire, England by Sybell Corbett clearly shows a figure sitting in the chair on the left.

It's believed to be the ghost of Lord Combermere, a British cavalry commander in the 1800s.

The Brown Lady - 1936

This photo of 'The Brown Lady', is considered by many to be actual photographic evidence of ghosts. It was taken at Raynham Hall in Norfolk, England in 1936.

There had allegedly been many sightings of the figure before this photo and it's said to be the ghost of Lady Townshend. She was locked in a room in the hall by her husband when he found out about her infidelity and left there to die.

Corroboree Rock - 1959

Some of these ghostly photos could just be explained away as double exposures, but there's no denying they're interesting.

Nobody knows who the ghostly figure in this photo is, but it was taken in Alice Springs, Northern Territory, Australia in 1959.

Some people think it's just a case of double exposure, while others think it could be a spirit watching us, or something else, because it looks like they're holding binoculars.

Tulip Staircase Ghost - 1966

This photo taken inside the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England, clearly shows a ghostly figure holding the handrail of the Tulip Staircase.

Photo experts have all agreed that it hasn't been tampered with, so is considered a genuine example of ghosts' existence.

Robert A Ferguson - November 1968

Because this photo was taken on a Polaroid, it's been deemed by many to be legitimate. It shows Robert A. Ferguson giving a speech, and the ghost of his deceased brother Walter peering over him.

Madonna of Bachelor's Grove - 1991

The Ghost Research Society of America took this photo at Bachelor's Cemetery in Illinois, after they noticed strange readings on their equipment.

They didn't see anything at the time, but when this image was exposed, it showed a woman in white clothing sitting on one of the graves.

The Wem Town Hall Ghost - November 1995

Although Tony O'Rahilly's photo appears to show the ghost of a young girl in the doorway to a burnt-down Wem Town Hall, it was later deemed to be a fake. The girl in question apparently appears on a postcard that appeared in the local paper.

Sefton Church - 1999

This picture at Sefton Church in Liverpool, England, clearly shows a man wearing a black uniform, believed to be the old church minister.

There were allegedly only two photographers in the church on the day it was taken, and neither of them recall seeing a physical being standing there when the photo was taken.

William Mumbler - 1860s

William Mumbler is credited with creating the first photo to show a ghost in the 1860s. But it in fact wasn't a ghost at all, it was simply an accidental case of double exposing a negative while taking a photograph of himself.

The entrepreneur in him turned this into a business, where members of the public would have their portrait exposed with an image of a dead relative.

Girls in Manila - 2000’s

A digital photo shows a ghostly figure touching one of the two girls seen in this photo, yet no one was there.

The two girls in this photo, taken in Manila, Philippines, didn't report seeing anyone or feeling any presence when this photo was taken. It was also taken on a digital camera, so it can't have been the result of double exposure.

Waverly Hills Sanatorium - 2006

This image was snapped in an abandoned tuberculosis hospital in Louisville, Kentucky in 2006. As you can imagine, in its heyday, the hospital saw an incredible amount of sickness and death - leading many to believe in the possibility that it could be haunted.

In recent years, it has become one of America's most popular destinations for ghost hunters.

This eerie image apparently depicts Mary Lee, a nurse who hung herself in the hospital. The story goes that this poor woman was impregnated by a doctor who worked in the hospital but later wanted nothing to do with her.

Tewin Bury Farm Ghost - 2008

Neil Sandwich took this photo of a farmhouse where his friends were getting married.

When he put the photo into Photoshop and adjusted the exposure, he noticed a mysterious white figure on the right-hand side, appearing to be peering out of a doorway. Cleaners at the farmhouse had apparently seen the ghost of a young boy wearing white clothes before, too.

San Antonio crossing ghosts

Years ago, sometime in the 1930s, it's said that a school bus full of children broke down near a railway crossing in San Antonio, Texas. Tragically, a speeding train hit the bus, killing several children and the bus driver.

This photo taken by Andy and Debi Chesney appears to show some ghostly apparitions that people have suggested look like ghosts of the children. Like any of these images, there is some debate about whether they're real and even if the history itself is true, but they're still spooky.

A ghostly pooch

This photo shows a tale of two four-legged friends. The dog on the left had a much larger pal (pictured on the right). When the little one died, he was later photographed seemingly appearing with his friend from beyond the spirit world.

A demonic spirit on a hospital bed

This weird vision shows a CCTV camera in a hospital. A demonic spirit appears to be trampling over the bed.

Apparently, the person in the bed passed away shortly afterwards. This image could easily appear in our list of the most famous monster photographs instead .

The Pink Lady

This image from Greencastle, Indiana was taken by Guy Winters and chums who were investigating paranormal reports about an abandoned house in the area.

This photo seemingly shows a ghostly woman bathed in pink and includes a final shot where the image has been digitally enhanced showing an incredibly human face on the apparition.

The Grey Lady - 2015

This image from 2015 was captured on an iPhone and seemingly shows a ghostly apparition. This figure could be that of the ghost of Dame Sybil Penn, a lowly servant of the Tudors who has haunted Hampton Court palace since 1829 .

The photo was snapped in the King’s Apartments of the Palace. While the so-called Grey Lady of Hampton Court is usually said to walk the corridors of the State Apartments and Clock Court. Interestingly this ghost is also said to be linked to weird and wonderful noises of a spinning wheel. That sound keep coming from behind a wall, which at one point was removed only for people to discover the spinning wheel behind it. Spooky stuff.

3 Best Video Cameras for Ghost Hunting

Cleveland Paranormal Company Camera

Have you been inspired by some supernatural force to go out and partake in some ghost hunting? Do you have the urge to capture paranormal activity on tape, to prove the existence to others who are more skeptical?

Whatever drives you to capture ghosts and spirits on tape; you will be happy to know you don’t need those ridiculous setups that ghost hunting team’s use on television.

You can embark on your own ghost hunting mission with a good, affordable video camera , and hopefully, capture something out of this world.

What makes a good ghost hunting camera

A video camera used for ghost hunting is going to need to be specialized in a few things. After all, you aren’t recording your friends at a party; you are looking for beings that don’t really exist in physical form, in the dark. Sounds easy right?

Night vision – Ghost hunting more often than not takes place at night, in the dark. Obviously then you will need a video camera that has night vision capabilities.

Being able to pick out very faint objects in pitch black dark is really important, otherwise, you might as well give up the ghost hunting stint altogether.

Night vision capabilities are usually measured in “minimum lux”, which means the minimum amount of light needed for the image enhancers and lens to produce an image that is actually viewable.

The best night vision cameras need a minimum lux of 0.0001. However, you shouldn’t need one this high-tech to be able to catch a ghostly image or two, so one that is more affordable should be fine.

There is no point splashing out and bankrupting yourself on a high-end camera when you don’t actually need it.

Rather stick to something you can afford, with a decent minimum lux, and use whatever money you have left over to buy some other ghost hunting gear.

Long battery life – Ghost hunting takes place during the night 99% of the time. While you might spend a bit of the night carrying your camera around actively seeking out ghosts and trying to communicate with them, you will find that the majority of the camera time will be placed on a tripod recording in a room.

This is when most ghost activity is caught on film when there is no human presence, just a camera recording through the night.

Your video camera will obviously have to have a good, long battery life. Imagine missing the world’s best ghost video because your battery died a minute before the ghost appeared?

Check that the video camera you are buying has a long battery life, preferably one that is rechargeable as well.

Durable – Admit it, no matter how hard-core you are, or how experienced you are at ghost hunting, seeing a ghost will still scare the heebie-jeebies out of you.

You might scream like a little girl or freak out completely and drop your camera or knock it over, which is why your video camera needs to be durable and stable.

A camera that breaks the first time it is dropped during a ghost hunt is pointless. A good camera case also goes a long way in ensuring that your video camera remains safe during any spooky accidents.

Static camera – If you are mounting your camera to a wall or setting it on a tripod, you want to make sure that it is secure and safe in place.

A video camera that doesn’t mount securely will just plop to the floor and shatter. This really isn’t an obstacle you want to overcome in the middle of a ghost hunt.

Good lens – A camera with a glass lens will work better than a camera with a plastic lens. Make sure the video camera you buy has a good glass lens.

Stabilizer – Things can get quite shaky when you are experiencing a close-encounter. It is worth making sure that the camera you buy has a stabilizer.

This will stop your shakiness from affecting the recording.

Most cameras nowadays come with a stabilizer but just remember to check when you make a purchase.

A good ghost video won’t be worth much if it is completely ruined by the shakes.

The 3 Best Video Cameras For Ghost Hunting

Now that you know what to look for in a video camera when it comes to ghost hunting, here are some of the best cameras to use. Some are a little more expensive than others, but everyone has a different budget.

At the end of the day, these cameras should get the job done, no matter the price. They all have most of the capabilities needed to capture that elusive spirit that you have been after for a while, and they should do so while being stable, durable and reliable.

Cleveland Paranormal 4K Ultra HD Infrared Night Vision and Full Spectrum Camcorder

Check it out on Amazon. This is the real deal for affordable, easy to use ghost hunting cameras. In fact, it was created purely to be used as a ghost hunting video camera. For new ghost hunters, it is probably the best buy you will make. It also tops my list for best full spectrum cameras for ghost hunting . 

It is the only 4K camcorder that switches from infrared to full spectrum with the push of a button.

The camera has a wide angle lens and an extra battery that ensures your camera never dies in the middle of a ghost hunt.

WiFi capabilities mean you can remotely watch and control the camera from your Android or iPhone.

It has a 4K Ultra Sony Emor CMOS Sensor, one of the only cameras of its kid to have one.

This camera has everything a budding ghost hunter needs and most of what an experienced ghost hunter needs as well.

It is a steal at its current price and should last you a long time through your ghost hunting career or hobby.

It features capabilities that no other video cameras have, all suited to hunt down those ghosts.

Panasonic HC-V380K Full HD Camcorder

Check it out on Amazon. This camera features Ultra-Sharp 4K Ultra HD recording, and it even includes in-camera editing for 1080p displays. The EVF (Electronic Viewfinder) makes the camera feel and work like a semi-professional video recorder.

The HDR button helps easily transition between displays when needed.

The 20x zoom, 5 Axis Hybrid Optical Image Stabilization, and Image sensor all help to create and record clear, crisp videos that won’t miss a thing.

This really helps when trying to record ghosts that barely appear. The stabilization will also stop the camera shaking when your hands aren’t so stable.

Watch the recordings remotely using the WiFi capabilities, and edit videos on the camera itself (dolly zoom, slow/quick motion, 4K post cropping, stabilization, and zoom).

For ghost hunters, this is a good choice. It is pretty pricey but is just as good as a semi-professional video camera and will hopefully capture the appearance of a ghost if they choose to show themselves.

Hausbell Infrared Night Vision Camcorder

Check it out on Amazon. The Hausbell Camcorder is one of the most versatile for ghost hunters. It comes with a Wi-Fi function that enables users to remotely view what the camera is recording. That way, you don’t actually have to be in the creepy abandoned building to be watching what your camera is recording. You can use your tablet or smartphone to remotely control the camera. The camera has a 30FPS 16X digital zoom and a 270-degree rotation, so it shouldn’t miss a thing.

It is easy to carry around and is fairly lightweight. You won’t be weighed down by some old tech, everything you need in a video camera is found in this neat little device.

Ghost hunting in modern times

Luckily, we have been born into an era of technological advances. We don’t have to lug around tons of gear to try and prove the existence of ghosts, only for it to be blurry or not usable at all.

Now, we have dainty little camcorders that fit into the palm of your hand. Their size, however, is no indication of their power.

These video cameras can record using High Definition, Infrared and Night Vision. Everything needed to capture an elusive spirit.

Some ghosts may even have caught up with the times and are now aware of the video cameras used to hopefully record them.

They might recognize these devices and be shy of them.

The small size of the newer recorders meant they are inconspicuous and even easy to hide. They can be mounted to a wall or fixed onto a tripod.

Probably the best part of it all is that most of the video recorders come with WiFi capabilities.

Using your smartphone or tablet, you are able to remotely control your video camera, or watch what it is recording in real time.

This way you can leave your camera in that creepy abandoned building overnight and watch what is going on, all from the comfort of your warm and safe hotel bed.

Video cameras for ghost hunting have come a long way, and time will only tell what other amazing features might be created to help in the quest for capturing ghosts on camera in the future.

Hopefully, we can make believers of everyone!

A spooky picture of a ‘ghost’ at Coombe Abbey has been captured on camera. An 11-year-old boy snapped the image of the spooky face peering out of one of the old building’s windows during a visit to the attraction with his family.

Oliver Tatham and his sister Rebekah visited the grounds of Coombe Abbey for the Illuminate light trail before Christmas with their grandad Eric.

Mr Tatham said he had been jokingly telling his grandchildren to ‘look out for ghosts’ as they walked along the trail. Oliver took the challenge seriously and carefully checked each window of the building.

Suddenly, something unusual caught his eye. In one of the first floor windows Oliver saw a woman standing very still. He said she looked as though she was wearing Victorian-style clothes with a white cap and apron over a black dress.

Oliver, 11, said: “When I saw this strange figure looking out of the window, staring at the garden, I took a photo on my mum’s phone, which I was using to take pictures of the lights. I zoomed in as far as I could. She was much clearer to my eye than in the photo.”

Oliver then called his mum and sister over to look but said that as he did so, ‘the figure did not move at all but suddenly disappeared completely’.

The youngster and his grandad researched Coombe Abbey ghosts online when they got home, and came across the sad story of Matilda, a former maid at the abbey when it was the home of the Craven family.

It’s not the first time that it’s been claimed Matilda has been captured on camera. Paranormal investigators visited in 2018 and claimed to have seen a number of apparitions , including capturing this image they said was Matilda.

Coombe Abbey has a long history and was famously linked to the Gunpowder Plot as Robert Catesby and other anti-establishment conspirators planned to kidnap Princess Elizabeth, who was staying at Coombe under the supervision of the king’s close friend.

In the 12th Century it was the largest and most influential monastery in Warwickshire , but after the dissolution of the monasteries ownership was passed about. John Harrington bought the property in 1581 and it was later acquired by the Craven family in 1622. It stayed with them for 300 years, during which time the Abbey was extensively developed, with a number of buildings added.

The last Lord Craven died in 1921 and the Countess decided to sell up. Coventry City Council took ownership of the Abbey in 1964. The parks were opened to the public in 1966 with the hotel opening in 1995.
