    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!
    Is what u typed here somehow contain some truth* ? coz i tot it would be cool if someone can modify their camera till can shoot those ghost.

    indeed...same here, seen and heard. Strangely, hearing them leaves a deeper impact on me, than seeing them.
