How does the SLS Camera work?
The SLS works by sending out hundreds of infrared beams. The beams are used to build up a 3D model of the area and everything inside it. Using the advanced human shape and skeletal tracking it can recognise people and ghosts. Which are displayed as a stick figure on screen.
How many ghosts can you see at once?
There is no limit to how many figures you can detect and capture at any one time. It uses infrared light projection system which uses two CMOS sensors to build the image. These sensors create a 3D map of the surroundings and objects, and can determine the proximity of everything around it. Giving you a seamless video image.
Which is the right SLS camera for me?
There are two models of the paranormal cam, the v1 stickman, which is the camera from the xBox 360 Kinect, and the v2 camera, which comes from the xBox One Kinect. The v2 stickman is newer and has a higher resolution image, but for ghost hunting purposes isn’t as good. Because of this, we do recommend the v1 Kinect 360 stickman camera. Once you have decided which type you need, you can then choose from the mains powered version or the portable battery powered version.
Do I need a Windows tablet?
A Windows tablet is required. We offer all models with and without a Windows tablet, depending on whether you have one or not. You will need the paranormal software as well, it comes preinstalled on our tablets, or sell it separately on a USB stick.
More tip and tricks
If your sceptical about the paranormal ghost figures the SLS Camera picks up, you can ask the spirit to move to the left or right, or ask it to wave and see the image move. We have done this many times and your will be surprised about how often the spirits actually carry out what you ask. The v1 and v2 cameras are not manufactured any longer, so we only sell used ones. All of the other accessories, power leads, USB sticks and tablets are new. You may be interested in reading the Experimental evidence for paranormal phenomena by Cambridge University.
Screen Recording Software
We don’t include screen recording software on our tablets, but as they are Windows tablets you can install something to record the screen yourself. There are many free programs available online. With our battery powered portable cameras we recommend new Duracell batteries. They last longer and will give you less issues when using it. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to get in touch and ask us, we are more than happy to help.
Used by Ghost Adventures!
The famous Structured Light Sensor is a classic tool used by Ghost Adventures. The SLS first appeared on the episode “Saint James Hotel”, since this time the ghost hunting crew have used it on many occasions. One of the most entertaining episodes was the “Palomino Club”, where the stick figures literally danced for them on command on video. It was very fun and entertaining! One of the most personal occasions was the episode “Goodwin Home Invasion”. The stick figures danced around in Aaron’s kitchen for a while before completely vanishing. Further on in the episode another figure is seen walking around on all fours like an animal. These incredible episodes have helped popularise the Kinect sensor in the ghost hunting and paranormal communities.
How to make a Kinect SLS Cam
"It’s quite simple really, is just the SLS Kinect sensor from the xBox 360". You will need the sensor, power lead and soft-ware. The power lead comes with a USB connecter which you will need to connect to a Windows device such as a tablet, laptop of computer. The Microsoft software is free it’s called Kinect Studio. You will need Kinect Studio v1.8 for the xBox 360 cam and Kinect Studio v2.0 for the xBox One cam.
Powering your DIY Kinect
If you are powering it will a mains power adapter its only really any good for indoor use, and its not very portable. If you want to make a portable version you will need to cut the plug off the power cable and power it with a 12v battery pack. Once you get you that stage you just need to make some form of box or housing to build it all into to make it portable.
The famous SLS tracker is a ghost hunting tool that will help give you video evidence during your ghost hunting paranormal investigations. The built in ghost hunting tracker can see more than one ghost at a time if they are present. Our new SpiritShack tracker is built in the United Kingdom, but we also worldwide shipping. We keep many in stock and they have nothing but good 5 stars customer reviews. If you have one to sell, feel free to get in touch we sometimes buy used equipment. We offer several payment methods in the United Kingdom and worldwide. VAT receipts can be given if needed.

Designed specifically for hunting ghosts and spirits!
The Structured Light Sensor camera is a commonly used tool for ghost busters. It gives you the ability to track skeletal movement. There are many ghost hunting stores stocking these, we have them prebuilt. No more waiting or being given estimated delivery dates. We ship our SLS next working day! Contact the seller for more information!
Ours is the original ghost tracker cam, which has been copied by many other sellers. Please be cautious about buying inferior copies. They may undercut our prices slightly, but ensure to read their feedback and compare it against ours. Many people have been stung by these rogue traders.
Is everything caught on it supernatural?
We can’t guarantee you that everything that the SLS spirit tracker picks up is paranormal. It will obviously track humans, and anything human shaped. And it will track spirits and ghosts. There are however odd times where it will track physical human shaped objects.
You should usually be able to tell if this is happening, as the skeletal shape will not move, you can judge this with a little common sense. It’s up to the user to determine if what is picked up is intelligent paranormal evidence or not. Remember that the device will read the environment around it, and sometimes there could be a natural and logical explanation behind it.
How does the ghost tracker work?
The Kinect SLS Cameras projects out thousands of IR beams using its built-in monochrome CMOS sensor. All the beams hit things, bounce off and return back to the camera. It times how long each beam takes to come back and it used this information to build a 3D map of the room and all the objects inside it.
This allows the camera work to build a real time 3D model, which shows depth and detail. And as it uses infrared light it can function perfectly well in pitch black. The software can recognise people from the shape, limbs and joints. It can recognise movement and it puts all this together and displays it live onscreen. While the software doesn’t have any built-in recording features, you can install screen recording software to record it.
Why it is still the number one ghost hunting device
The world famous structured light sensor camera allows you to catch video evidence of ghosts. You can actually see them, take photos and record videos of them in real time. As of yet there is no other device which will allow you to do this. Spirits can’t been seen with the human eye, or any type of video recorder. When you think of paranormal, you think of the SLS.
Ghost Adventures was the team that got this device out there and showed it to the world. Because they are so popular and are watched by millions, it caught on very fast. Not only did they show it in action. They actually caught some amazing evidence with it on a couple of occasions.
How does it's 3D mapping technology work?
Not only is it portable, it works in the day time and in absolute darkness. The portable model is light weight and can be used with one hand. The camera itself was made by Microsoft. Designed for human tracking for the xBox game console. It was called the Kinect sensor, discontinued now of course.
The SLS works by sending many little infrared beams out. These beams hit objects and walls and bounce back. Depending on the distances of what the beams hit. It takes differing amounts of time for them to get back to the device. Using advanced software and timing it can build a 3D model of the room. Which you can view on screen. These beams also bounce of ghosts, allowing it to see them when you can’t.
The software also uses shape and joint recognition. Allowing it to detect humanoid shapes. Once detected it will track them and you are alerted on screen. This is what makes this magic. The SLS wasn’t designed for ghost hunters, but it works perfectly well for the purpose. We offer a one year warranty on our custom build models, terms and conditions apply.
