    Check your camera if there is a "G" mode in it.

    Failing that soak the camera in chicken blood before the night of shoot.

    Very funny. Dip the CF card in silver paint if we want to shoot down the warewolf on full moon nights.

    there's a manual online which teaches you how to modify the CCD sensor of your camera to be more sensitive to 'ghostly' apparitions. also, it takes a very long exposure (2 minutes and above) to be able to capture the 'ghosts', so don't forget your tripod!

    lastly, there's also a filter available to screw on your lens..this filter will prevent the 'ghost' from spiritually entering your camera and posessing it (eg. http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthread.php?t=128090)

    gd luck!

    The spirit will float still in the air for 2 minutes for a long exposure. Please refrain from engaging conversation with it. Also resist the offer to buy a supercheap 1Ds from it as when you take it home it will turn into a partially burnt paper camera.

    You mean ghost can only be taken with a specified camera brand is it?

    remember to burn a cd of the pictures (literally) for the 'ghost' if it's a TFP session. if not, he/she/it might haunt you for them

    Best to use Hell brand paper CDs ($20 for a stack of 12s). Make sure you duplicate and triplicate for its friends too. Otherwise you have so many requests for the CDs from the friends at night that you won't be able to go to sleep.

    'ghostly' appearances are generally remnants of electromagnetic pulses of people and events which happen long, long ago. these impulses are somehow trapped in a void, thus unable to easily transform into other forms of energies such as heat, sound and so on. over time, these impulses will slowly 'leak' out of the void. this is where we come in ... we modify the CCD chip and 'tap' into these impulses..transforming the impulses into visible light. as the 'leakage' is slow..hence the need for long exposures (2 minutes and longer). however, my advice is not to give it too long an exposure too, as this will result in the "Ring Syndrome" , whereby the 'ghost' will crawl out of your DSLR LCD screen. the fixing of the special filter in front of the lens is specifically to prevent this syndrome. go for the multicoated version!

    now..to the more technical part .. focussing is not like what we do in conventional photography. as the 'impulses' are beyond the normal visible light spectrum, we need to 'agulation' the focus distance. if you ever wonder what the symbol '8' on your lens mean... (in this case, it does not mean infinity).. well, that's where you should set your focus distance to. ever wonder why they use '8'? because according to Chinese tradition..it is suppose to be a lucky number.

    now go out there n shoot, shoot, SHOOT!
