Ghost Hunt, Myrtle Plantation, LA 2013
We have added a few new pieces of equipment to our investigation kit. Aside from the new Sony hard drive camera that you have seen Bryon using in some of our investigations we now also have a GoPro Hero.
We have also added a brand new Sony NXCAM production camera to our equipment. It can shoot regular 1920x1080p and switch to night vision while shooting making it an excellent choice for shooting paranormal investigations. Another wonderful thing about it is that it is totally digital and does not use tapes. It can also shoot for 7:09 hours straight on one battery. It has internal 96 gig of RAM and up to SD-64 gig chip.
The NXCAM is a little bit larger (1.5x) than the hard drive camera we have been using for night vision and camera 2 work. It has two professional canon style audio connections on the handle mount allowing full control of two audio channels with Dolby audio. It also has low LUX in color mode and if you can see it you can shoot it.
The Hero camera has a wide field of vision, awesome colors and can be worn or set up to shoot video or take stills every so many seconds. It doesn't do well in the dark. It does shoot full 1080p HD video however and will be a handy thing to add to our equipment. One main thing I like about the Hero is that it can be mounted on top of another camera so you can shoot both wide field and regular video with the two cameras.
Area 51 and Rachel, NV
We are on the road back from Rachel, NV, home of the Little Aleinn. We had an alien burger a cold drink, shot some video while there and now we are headed back. On the way in we stopped on Groom Lake Road. The roadway that leads to the infamous Area 51.
We are headed back now and while my driver does his thing I'm editing this into the news page for our visitors. No we have not seen any UFOs on this trip.
We attended The Universal Passing Over
event in Vegas and had a good time. There's news about that on the events
We have been having a fun time in Las Vegas, NV. We have been eating at fun places like Margaritaville, the MGM rain forest and seeing the shows. We are staying at The Cliffs in Peace Canyon near Red Rock.
Thanks to our digital 8 camera's LCD going out we bought another home mini-DV camera. I discovered the new camera can read the tapes shot in the Canon camera from 2002 and 2003. Because of this video that was once lost to us has been recovered.
We have returned to the job of finishing Spooky Places.
We have mountains of video and pictures to sort through. We have days upon days of editing ahead of us. We also have at least one last paranormal investigation to do to close the show out.
Since so many others are shooting paranormal investigation shows and not explaining certain things to the viewers we have decided to do something different. We have decided to do what they aren't doing and explain things that certain producers of paranormal shows don't want you to know. We also intend to tell our story, the mistakes we've made and the things we've learned in the past few years.
