|Sony DCR-HC52 MiniDV Handycam Camcorder with 40x Optical Zoom (Discontinued by Manufacturer)|
|Retail Price: $249.99|
|Amazon Price: $484.50|
The next factor to include is the camera is capable to have extended IR (infrared) lighting available and what media it records it video too. You can record to tape, DVD, harddrive or flash media. Since price was a factor, tape was the cheapest, and I found the Sony DCR-HC52 MiniDV Handycam Camcorder. Oddly I reviewed this a few months ago (not ghost hunting related).
This is a great little camera. Here is where they have to say about the NightShot feature:
NightShot Plus Infrared System In low-light environments, the NightShot Plus Infrared System lets you shoot color video with a less greenish tint than previous infrared systems.
If you need additional IR illuminator, check out this page out for brackets and night vision lights for the camcorder.
You can pick this camera up for around $200 on Amazon. It’s an older model, but could serve well on a chilly ghost hunt. If you have any other recommendations for a ghost hunting camera, please drop me a email or comment on this post!
