    Default How many of you taken photo with light orbs? what camera and lens can see this?

    Hi all

    I have seen some pictures taken especially in those holy and quite place, showing some light orbs, like below.
    Just curious anyone of you taking this kind of picture before.
    If so, what lens and camera you used that can see this "orbs".
    So far, those that I know are point and shoot camera.

    Water drops and/or dust on the lens. No magic.

    If you believe it, you need to ask the orbs to appear prior to taking the shot.

    The camera is unimportant.

    yes, only with direct flash and dark background, you can try it at night, sprinkle some water into the air and shoot it.

    The "orb" phenomenon seems to be popularised by supernatural advocates like SP*.

    It's not about water droplets on the windows. It's about droplets suspended in mid-air, illuminated by direct flash. It's a very simple explanation using Science. But if you choose to believe that it is due to spirits, then so be it.

    not this,

    to get the effect you want, the water droplet or dust particle is in the air, near camera lens, not on the lens, the water droplet is overexposed by the flash and totally out of focus.

    I am sure there is a perfectly scientific explanation for the orbs. But many would choose to believe the supernatural.

    It's just like asking why are there earthquakes. It can be the wrath of god. Or the sliding of tectonic plates.

    I believe that is water particles on mid air kena flashed.

    So far places that i caught orbs are at Old Commando barracks and Old Changi Hospital. but that can be dust particles too...

    More interesting orbs is where i zoom in i see faces on those little dots. but well that could be my imaginations too..

    Paranormal stuffs just cant be explained by science.

    Actually it can, in fact 99.999*% of the time an experiment to prove an hypothesis as true with regards to the paranormal often if not always concludes in a false result.

    you need to perform a ritual on your camera before it gains the third eye

    If you want to, you can spot a face almost everywhere. In clouds, that patch of mould in the longkang, or even on the kaya that you spread on your toast.

    For water droplets to be illuminated and reflected back at the camera, they have to be at a certain angle relative to each other. It's the same idea that causes lens flares and rainbows.

    (I think that despite all these explanations, some people will still want to think that these are images of spirits. Hmm.)
