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.

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

The camera is unimportant.

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. :bsmilie:

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.

Hello, I have a photo with orbs.. It was taken sometime back in June 2008 in Taiwan while my tour group was releasing a heaven lantern.. These are shot with my Sony a200 with 70-200/2.8 with flash. Here are the images.







I can't explain why it is like this but i'm just here to share =/

Here are the links to images on Flickr.

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

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.)
