A ghost-hunter's tech toolkit

Before you start the next great poltergeist hunt, check out our skeptical look at what ghost-hunting gadgets supposedly reveal.

Full-Spectrum Digital Camera and Camcorder



If you want to try to take a shot of your spooky friend, you need a digital camera or camcorder modified to capture full-spectrum photos. This is how ghost hunters claim to take photos of apparitions in infrared and UV light spectra. Apparitions appear as opaque orbs, mist, or smoke—all of which can be explained by normal camera tricks. The reflection of rain can create orbs in a photo, as can dust on the camera lens or reflections off of unnoticed shiny surfaces.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
