This UV Torch for ghost hunting has been designed with ease of use at the forefront of your mind, and it even comes with a handy little clip to hang on your belt. It works extremely well for ghost hunting and on paranormal investigations when you are filming with a Full Spectrum camera.
It is known amongst the paranormal investigation community that some ghosts and paranormal entities only show tip in ultraviolet light. It is therefore necessary to include the use of UV and IR Light in your paranormal investigation.
This torch is shock resistant meaning you can drop it or leave it out during your paranormal investigation and it will be extremely hard to break (you never know what might happen!) The handle is easy to grip and keep hold of, which is a great feature in case you are carrying it around in your pocket throughout an investigation, or moving at a rapid pace.

How Does the Ultraviolet Light Work?
It is regarded amongst the ghost hunting community that sometimes ghosts only appear in ultraviolet light. It has therefore believed that spirits and ghosts may become more visible in different kinds of lighting, including infrared and ultraviolet light.
UV light has been used throughout the field of forensic research as narrow bands of light colours which are both visible and invisible to our eyes can highlight certain organic material and cancel out other colours. This would make the organic material much more visible due to creating a sharper contrast image, making the whites whiter and the dark materials and colours fade into the background.
This philosophy is being experimented with throughout the paranormal investigation community, as researchers attempt to analyze just why it is that paranormal entities and spirits tend to show up in lighting which we cannot see with the naked eye, such as infrared and ultraviolet.
By using a UV Light which is compromised of both visible and invisible coloured lights with a full spectrum camera, you might be able to see much more paranormal activity than if you are just using regular lighting to illuminate an area.

How To Use It:
This Handheld UV Light Torch for ghost hunting sits at around 365nm on the wavelength light spectrum. Expect the light that is emitted to be a deepish purple/blue UV light, which you should be able to just about see with the naked eye. This is basically a blacklight but for ghost hunting!
It is worth noting that the LED chip from this UV Flashlight for ghost hunting will not look incredibly bright when you look at it with your eyes. The 365nm UV light range is just about visible but is mostly beyond what we can see with the naked human eye. It will appear much brighter on a full-spectrum camera. So make sure to not look directly into the torch, as even though it does not look incredibly bright, it can still damage your eyesight!
Depending on the scope and size of the area of your paranormal investigation, you may want to use this as a backup UV Light alongside a larger one (we stock a large range of UV lights, some free-standing some handheld like this one). This means that if anything happens to the larger UV light that you are able to have a backup on hand.
The benefit of having a handheld UV Light for ghost hunting and paranormal investigations is that if you are covering a large area, you are able to move around freely. This is also a great piece of equipment to use alongside a handheld Full Spectrum Camera for ghost hunting, as you will be able to hold both while recording live or live-streaming your investigation.
