Hello

I am here to ask for help.. I have read alot about digital cameras and 35mm... I recently thought i caught an orb on my phone but was told it was prob a dust orb or something but not paranormal.. So it made me read up about what cameras are best for better and truer results.

i obviously know a 35mm uses a film tho so that aint the difference im looking for lol
Now it says go for a 35mm camera with a 400 film but surely this would catch same results as a digital camera or mobile if they all use a flash.. can someone esplain why my chances of catching fake orbs is less on a 35mm ? im looking for a cheapish 35mm camera if anyone knows where you can get a decent one let me know where please... if not can you move my post to where someone can explain what the difference is.. lol thank you guys

Wrong, 35 mm come in digital SLR as well as film.
The theory is that orbs are a by product of the digital cameras CMOS sensor, this is the sensor that captures light and is the equivalent to film. It would seem true that some smaller digitals do capture orbs more frequently than film and the reason may be the position of the cameras flash in relation to the lens. The smaller hand held digi cams have a flash that is near the lens, this is not so with an SLR, where the flash is above the lens and can be external as well. It makes perfect sense that this side light from a small hand held digi or a cell phone cam will light the dust from a side angle which can result in the tell tale orb pictures we see plastered all over the net. A film camera is not immune to orbs though at least a film camera with a top flash isn't but there are not that many of them used today. Any light source can create orbs experiment with it a bit. You want to be looking for other forms of validation rather than just photo IMO.
