    I don't think he will reply la offer his some "money" first take this scientifically, in order for u to see him in the photo u nid a filter that can see only the "special electromagnetic signal" that we can't see an example would be infrared right? If we find that frequency we then we just unlocked the key to the demon world

    This thought has occurred to me.

    I have bought used cameras.
    Then again, I always think that if the previous owner has died, - if he was an ardent photography hobbyist, would be happy that his camera is now in the possession of some one who takes great care of it, respects the gadget and likes the hobby as much as he did.

    I may be frightened initially if his ghost appears. But later on maybe can talk coc and share hobby tips. And he may be a former member of Club-Snap too. Watch out those who sent him nasty messages on Club-Snap.

    The same legacy issue happens with houses, expensive watches and so on.

    Haha

    New story line for movies.. Shutter was a great hit.. I believe this will make an even better story.

    Shouldn't be a problem...Just take on the mentality as an antique collector. If I am able to find a confirmed thousand year old bowl that I like at a affordable price, I could have bought it well knowing that quite a number of people have eaten from the bowl had been long dead already. Of course if it is confirmed antique, most likely it would not be at a price I can afford.

    heard from a true story.. a photographer from the media.. taking shots of those murder scene, death scenes as part of his job.. eventually things happened .. and he went blind..

    sold his camera cheaply, the next owner took shots and find it strange when developing photos, seeing "unearthly people at the scene when there werent when he took it. only to realise that the pics that he developed were what happened in the past, or going to happen..

    after a while he got scared, but he cant stop shooting. the moment he stop, he;s haunted by things... and fate met him with the owner, and he told the story... and he went blind was because , unable to take it anymore , he pulled out his own eyes .....
