The Gadits over say the last 15 years have come a long way. Heck i walked into a room and people were using some knock off version of a FRANKS BOX and it said my Daughters name and then called me sacrilegious.Coincidence??? Hope so lol. In my world the BEST equipment is myself and my GUT feeling. For some people like to use the modern equipment. There are a lot of "GHOSTHUNTING" tool websites that sell everything from meters to spirit Vaccumes that will suck up the ghosts and put it in a jar. I have never seen a universal code like a lab certified or UL on equipment. Mabe someday but for now, buyer beware. The research is easy and national and local groups usually post on their websites what equipment they are using. A lot can be gleaned from that. Good luck

I was wondering about what equipments paranormal investigators use when working? Are these tools valid or scientifically justified/approved/tested?
Good question, well, first the most basic of equipment is the "digital voice recorder", that's were us P/I's capture EVP's. Any meter that measures milligauss (Mel-Meter, K2, Ghost Meter (ick), etc), is a time tested an pretty well substantiated piece of equip. After all, how can somebody explain a Mel Meter reading of 3.8 in a totaly desolate and isolated area far from any electrical grid. Regular cameras, are a good tool, but not really needed to actually capture sothing paranormal, is akin to finding the holy grail. Camera's such as full spectrums and FLIR (see avatar), are tremendous tools, that is if you can incur the steep price.
The most core tools that any investigator must have on their person is the Voice Recoder and any milligauss measurement device ( excluding the ghost meter..eww). After all, you only have two hands.

That being said I still feel the best tool you can have is an open but skeptic mind. Be open to the experience but understand even the most extreme paranormal event may be explained away in natural terms.

I'm not sure what you mean by "outcome" ... if you mean overall impression of a place then yeah sure but whatever "evidence" you collect shouldn't be affected How you interpret the evidence might be different BUT if your evidence is strong it is what it is regardless of initial impressions
Personally I couldn't imagine going someplace to do an investigation and NOT think it might be haunted ... I mean that's kinda the point

Let me use firefighting as an example. If I think every structure fire is arson regardless of what the evidence is telling me than I am not fully opening up to what the evidence is actually showing me. Does that make sense?
