We use a Zoom Q8 converted to Infrared for our night vision video and audio applications. Its professional level performance and quality make it essential to our data acquisition toolkit. It can be mounted on stationary and handheld rigs which allow us to use this camera in all of our setups. All the pieces of equipment seen here are mountable on our rigs so their use in the field is practical and convenient. Check out the specs for the zoom Q8 here.
We use the Zoom Q2n 4K with the 10W Deadlite Demon and a 5" video monitor on a rig so we can see what we are filming. This simple, light-weight rig is perfect for carrying and setting down for on-the-go static shots. The audio quality of Zoom mixed with the high resolution of the 4K sensor in the camera make this an affordable setup. The lens has been replaced with a modded SJCam 4000 lens with the IR filter removed. This allows the camera to be used with infrared light. This setup is valued at $500. Watch our review of this setup here.

The Panasonic Lumix G85 is a professional Micro Four Thirds Mirrorless camera with a 16MP sensor and shoots 4K UHD video. It's in-body sensor stabilization provides superior handheld video production. we use Rode shotgun mics and field monitors for increased sound quality and manual focus pulling. This camera is used for interviews, B roll and regular light applications. for specs on this camera go here.
We utilize the Sony FDR-AX100 4K Digital Camcorder to film our investigations. The camera has a larger sensor to perform well in low light situations and has the ability to film in the infrared spectrum via the Nightshot feature. The 4K resolution provides crystal clear and sharp imagery to aid in identifying anomalies while providing good production value. Click here for specs.
We use Laser grids with our video equipment in order to capture visual anomalies, shadows, or apparitions that can block the laser beam. This can be used with shadow detectors as well. the laser grid can also determine the shape and transparency of the anomaly. You can find this laser here.
We use the P-Sb7 and P-Sb11 for our primary ITC research. We use external speakers to improve the volume and sound quality and use audio recorders to capture what comes out of the device and speakers. The P-Sb11 also has an ATDD (Ambient temperature deviation device), flashlight, and dual spirit box setup. It has a selector for decoupling the AM/FM antenna. Click here to watch our ITC tutorial.
We use The Zoom h6 pcm digital recorder to capture all the audio for our EVP, DVP, and ITC experiments. Using high quality, stereo recorders are essential to our data acquisition and provide superior sound quality. The Zoom recorder has four XLR audio inputs to allow six-channel recording. This is important concerning our research when used with other audio devices. For specs of this recorder, Click here.
We use the RVPR mk iiI-id (Rountree voice phenomena recorder mark iiI interface death series) for EVP and DVP research. This setup utilizes the Tascam DR-40, One Rode Videomic go Shotgun microphone and a Magcheck 95 ELF/VF EMF sensor to create a four-channel mix of audio and emf data. This device helps determine and validate EVP and DVP. It also provides data for our hypothesis regarding EVP. Refer to our EVP tutorial for more info.
We use the EDI+ for our primary data Acquisition. It records all the environmental data that we look at in our research. It measures ambient temperature, barometric pressure, magnetic fields, humidity and detects vibration. It records what it measures onto a sd card as a .csv file and can be loaded into custom software that graphs out the data for analysis. Click here to view the centex website.
We use the Mel 8704r Rem-emt-sdd Meter for our hand-held data gathering. This meter measures magnetic fields, disturbances in the radiated electric field, temperature and shadows in the environment which may indicate the presence of paranormal phenomena. This is the most sophisticated Mel Meter that D.A.S. Offers. Collecting data on the go is important in our paranormal field research. click here to view D.A.s. website.
The Trifield Natural EM Meter is tuned to detect natural DC static fields in the magnetic and electric spectrum. Filters out man made EMFs. It will also measure radio and microwave fields. This is valuable for paranormal research as many man made EMFs can create false positives and readings. We use this device to see if there is any correlation between paranormal phenomena and anomalous emf spikes. The tri-axis emf sensor is also an advantage this meter has. Most meters have only one axis emf sensor which can potentially miss emfs in the environment. You can learn more here.
The Rem Pod is a research device we use for ITC and proximity detection of electrically conductive sources and EMF sources. The antenna on the Rem pod emits an electromagnetic field that may interfere with other anomalous fields in its proximity. It is a hypothesis that an entity can interact or be detected by this device. Click here to view d.a.s. website.
We use Deadlite© infrared and full spectrum lights for our paranormal research. They are custom made and hand built. They have tremendous range and variable control. They last longer at high output than any other light on the market. Visit Deadlite on Facebook.
We use a custom built remote controlled data acquisition device (RDAD) to deploy into areas we don't want investigators present or can't get to. This also extends our ability to acquire data so an investigator can be in two places at once. It uses a FPV camera and monitor and is long range.
