How does the spooky red light work?

The creepy lamp for Ghost Hunting is a high-powered light and will produce enough light to help most cameras without night vision capability. The deep red illuminator allows you to get a great picture and record the surroundings, whilst maintaining low light. This is a great option for those who do not have a camera with night vision or full-spectrum capabilities.

The use of a deep red light rather than a bright white light will be much easier on the eyes of you and other paranormal investigators. Since paranormal investigations tend to go on for several hours, this will be a massive bonus throughout your investigation. The red LED will add a very spooky element to the investigation.

It contains 3 small yet extremely high-powered LED lights which are sure to illuminate any small, medium or large-sized area. Despite its high-power, it is compact and small, meaning it is lightweight and easy to transport around as part of your kit.

The great thing about this red light is that you can power with 4x AA batteries, and you can carry replacement batteries if needed! It has the easy hot shoe mount attachment to ensure you can easily fit it onto your camera or filming rig.

How to use it

The red light for ghost-hunting is the perfect piece of equipment for experimental narrow wavelength investigation techniques. It is also a beneficial light for general purpose as it illuminates any environment vividly, whilst maintaining a dark, moody environment due to the red LED’s, without over-lighting the area.

Insert your 4x AA Batteries, and turn the light on. Once your illuminator for is powered on, you can either attach it to whichever camera you are using to record the paranormal activity, or set it up on a tripod or the floor.

If you are conducting a paranormal investigation over a large area, it is encouraged that you purchase multiple lights. This is because if the area is incredibly large, the lamp may not cover the entirety of the environment. If you are conducting your ghost hunting or paranormal investigation in a large room, it is recommended that you purchase 4 different red light units to guarantee the whole room is covered. If you choose this option, place the 4 crimson lights facing inwards in all corners of the room. They can either be placed on tripods, or simply put them on the floor with their back to the wall.

    This light is very impressive. It really gives my paranormal videos an eerie vibe and makes any surrounding look a little creepy and demonic. Just a small touch like a lighting colour change makes a dramatic difference.

    When this arrived, I thought it was great. Unfortunately, it appears not to like working with batteries. It actually melted them. I am not sure if mine is faulty. All has been dealt with a replacement being sent out. Customer service has been great as always. Thank you.
