With every reputable paranormal team comes a variety of equipment. Paranormal equipment is used to officially document evidence of a paranormal occurrence. Without evidence, using the aid of this equipment, we cannot help back up claims that others have had of paranormal occurrences in a specified location. Along with backing up claims of the paranormal, this equipment can also be used to debunk paranormal claims as being naturally occurring phenomena, other than something paranormal, in a location. As a scientific-based paranormal investigation team, this equipment is no different to us than laboratory equipment is to a chemist. Below is a list of the equipment MBPT utilizes on investigations, along with an explanation as to how each of them help us gather evidence.
Camcorders are essential to have on a paranormal investigation, in order to officially document any and all visual evidence and/ or experiences you may have throughout the investigation. Camcorders must also be compatible with infrared (IR) lights, because many entities travel in the infrared spectrum, which is the reason they cannot be seen with the human eye. Some investigators also use full spectrum lights which can see into not only the infrared spectrum, but into the ultraviolet spectrum as well. Not only are these lights useful for picking up on entities that may be hiding in these spectrums of light, but they are also useful for allowing the camcorder to see more clearly.
