It is easy to go out and buy every peice of tech avalaible for paranormal investigations however, a few basic pieces of equipment is all you need to begin.
A Voice Recorder:- This device is great for capturing EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) or any sounds that may be made whilst on an investigation. these devices vary in size, storage and price but you can pick one of for a very reasonable price (starting from £10 upwards)
EMF Metres:- The main use for a EMF metre is to check areas for high levels of EMF (Electro Magnetic Field) as a high EMF exposure can cause a variety of symptoms in which could could be seen as paranormal experiences. this also gives a base line reading of the room, so if your in a place where there is no electricity and you are getting spikes on your metre then it is a possibility that a spirt is trying to communicate and maybe using your electronics for manifestation. EMF metres can be bought fairly cheap depending on what you wish.
YOU: You are the best paranormal tool you can have, as you can hear, sense, feel, see, smell the environment.... as long as you dont jump at every little sound or movement and keep a rational head upon your shoulders then you will be asertain if that knock was the door or a ghost
Torch: Garanteed that you will be investigating in the dark or places with little to no light, so torches are the most essential piece of equpiment you'll need, enablling you to see any trip hazards (dog poo too if its outside) coming your way.
