Sony HR-SR1 AVC HD 30GB Handycam Camcorder For the first time, record high-definition video directly to a hard disk drive with the HDR-SR1 Handycam camcorder. It allows us to capture images in total darkness and has been a tool of choice when surveillance systems are not necessary, or too cumbersome for the size of the investigation. The only major problem with the unit is that Sony as a proprietary design, forcing us to use there software. Which requires conversion into the standard file types, such as WMF, WAV, AVI etc. That is not only time consuming but also looses some of its quality. Another drawback, is that we cannot connect his unit via firewire to the PC directly for broadcasting live over the Internet. Other than that, it's an excellent camera, with superb stereo sound quality. Boasting a generous 3.5" Wide (16:9) Hybrid Touch Panel Clear Photo? LCD screen and multiple connectivity options, the HDR-SR1 Handycam camcorder gives you complete control from capture to cut. For the first time ever, you can record high-definition video directly to a Hard Disk Drive (HDD). Plus, with the dual HD/SD format, you can record in standard definition as well. You can also freeze time in flawless detail with a 4.0 Megapixel still-capture feature to the HDD or Memory Stick Duo? Media.

Which is important when needing to zoom into an area of an investigation for a closer look. 850nm Infrared Illuminator We have eight of these little babies and each one is used on almost every investigation. Infrared emitters or illuminators can add lighting to an existing surveillance camera if the camera is infrared sensitive or compatible. Not all cameras are. If your cameras already have infrared LEDs and you wish to add more lighting, then these will work for you. Most IR cameras are only compatible with 850nm. If your camera does not have any LEDs, these may still work for you if your camera is infrared compatible or sensitive. Infrared illuminators only require power. You may place them next to your existing infrared camera or place them somewhere more ideal for you specific application such as closer to your target viewing area. These illuminators are completely weatherproof and can be used indoors or outdoors. The 940nm infrared illuminators are virtually invisible to the naked eye. We offer a 24 led, 56 led, and a 104 led illuminator. The built in CDS sensor turns on illuminator at night and off during the daytime. These illuminators have a 30 degree dispersion angle and are 12 volts DC operation. Mounting bracket and AC power adapter included. One year warranty. 140 LED 850nm Infrared Illuminator This infrared emitters (illuminator) can add enough lighting to any existing surveillance camera system. Two of these 140 LED emitter is enough power to light up an entire football field when placed goalpost to goalpost. And is totally undetectable except to infrared sensitive or compatible equipment. Not all cameras are powerful enough to light up large areas, and if you need coverage, this is the illuminator you want in your toy box. Most IR cameras are only compatible with 850nm. If your camera does not have any LEDs around the lens, these may still work for you as long as your camera is infrared sensitive. The IR140-850 illuminator has 140 LED placed at a 40 degree dispersion angle. It is 12 volts DC operation and we include a 2 amp 12 volt power supply. A Mounting bracket is also included. Plus a one year warranty. In the Shadows uses these illuminators on almost all of our investigations and they’re perfect for fully batter operated environment with an array of 12v batteries. Use them to extend the IR light into a backyard, parking-lot, driveway, or basement. Most IR is limited to small cameras for approximately 10-20 feet coverage and can also be used with an AC Adapter. Walkie-Talkies Since we don’t allow cell phones to be turned on during an investigation, We have several types of walkie-talkies available within the paranormal team. But the one thing we all agree on is that the one of the most important tools we have in our arsenal is walkie-talkie, in an emergency. But not just any walkie-talkie, the Motorola Walkie-Talkie. They're not only reliable, with great battery life, but also have a wide number of channels to use, in addition to a great range. Whether it's the backyard, parking-lot, driveway, or basement, you'll usually get a signal. Most models also have rechargeable batteries and car adapters for a quick re-charge. Don't leave home without one on your next investigation! Our four pair, are usually sufficient for our investigations and the range has not been disappointing. The all-weather, water resistant casing has also proven to be a valuable feature in bad weather investigations. Motions Sensors We are use a variety of Motion Sensors, but by far we prefer the 'broken beam' type of sensor. We use them when we wish to secure a doorway, walkway, hallway, and even our hidden camera equipment. These sensor allow you to leave the room or area un-monitored, sending out a loud shrill when activated. Notifying you of activity in the room. And are totally battery operated and usually include a power adapter for 100v/220 v. Invisible Infrared Border Patrol Security Beam w/Alarm/Chime Now when someone "crosses the line". This high tech device creates an invisible infrared beam up to 60 ft. long. When the beams crossed, a loud alarm or pleasant chime will be emitted. Use as an invisible playpen to alert you of your child or pet leaving a safe area. The alarm can also be used at night to scare off would-be intruders. In the chime mode, retail stores can use it to announce customers, or alert them when someone enters an area that is "off limits". Choose to have the chime sound only one time (when a customer enters a store), or continuously until you turn it off (when a child leaves a safe area). Distance can be set to high or low (max distance 60 ft.). In the chime mode, volume can be set to low, medium, or high. Two AC adapters are included. Three AA back up batteries are not included. This pair of units create an invisible infrared beam between the two units with the transmitter and receiver create an infrared beam up to 20 meters apart. Alarms when someone moves through the beam. It has a three volume level settings and alarm tones with two distance settings, it’s easy to align with the LED indicator lights on both units, and a warning sounds with a low battery warning signal. Great for catching a hoaxer as well!   Sorting Through a Myriad of Devices The content of this website is the copyright of World Nexus Publications © 2008-2011 The Favorite Devices Used by In the Shadows Paranormal Project Ghost Hunting 101
