Phasm Camera with Built-In Night Vision

phasm logo and features

onboard infrared + full spectrum + magnetic mount

The Phasm Cam is a 4K full spectrum and night vision recording camera for ghost hunters. In fact, this cam was designed and made right here at GhostStop with investigators in mind.

We have taken our years of experience ghost hunting to build the best low-light camcorder with features we’ve always wanted. The camera captures video in ultra high definition (4K) and in full spectrum, making it perfect for use in low-light or no-light situations.

In addition to its exceptional recording quality, the Phasm Cam is also built to integrate with other vital ghost hunting equipment. For instance, this versatile camcorder snaps directly to the Phasm Light.

The 4K Full Spectrum Camera for Paranormal Investigations
  • Purpose-Made for Ghost Hunting!
  • 4K Ultra HD Resolution — that’s 4x the quality of 1080p!
  • Exposure boost captures brighter shots in low light.
  • Records in total darkness with built-in IR light for night vision.
  • Compatible with other handy ghost hunting tools.
  • NEW! Phasm Converter Lens for daylight shots (optional add-on)
  • Live View: spectate in real-time on your phone or tablet via Wi-Fi.
  • Unlimited Power! Plugs into power or USB battery.
  • Wide selection of mounting capabilities (many included!).
  • Wide-angle lens to maximize the amount of potential evidence you capture.
  • Rechargeable and replaceable battery –- swap them out as needed!

Magnet mounting beyond the tripod

phasm product demo illustration

Yes, you can mount this cam to a standard tripod or bracket. But that’s where ‘standard’ ends.

We’ve also included a number of standard mount accessories for securely attaching to a typical tripod, bike, helmet…whatever!

Combine with Phasm Light for ultimate results.

This camera was specifically built to work alongside our Phasm Full Spectrum Light — they don’t just share a name! The two share the ability to attach to each other, magnetically.

Phasm Cam utilizes strong magnets on the bottom for mounting directly to the top of the Phasm Light. There’s no need for additional brackets, adapters or hassle. Just zap them together, turn them on, and go investigate.

Additionally, because they are magnets, you can also mount the camera to any magnetic metal surface like a refrigerator, window frame, air vent, car door, or one of those magnetic phone mounts. This proves handy in cases where you don’t have a flexible tripod available or the option of using tape to mount things on location.

A night vision & full spectrum powerhouse!

A full spectrum video camera is a powerful tool that can be used to capture images in both the visible and invisible light spectrum. This means that you will be able to see things that are normally not visible to the naked eye, including objects in the infrared and ultraviolet ranges.

Full spectrum cameras are often used by investigators who are looking for paranormal activity. This is because it is believed that spirits may be able to manifest themselves in these parts of the light spectrum.

You can use this ghost hunting equipment as a night vision camera or go full spectrum with your choice of lighting. As flexible as this camera is, you will find it an effective and essential photographic evidence gathering tool.

Unbeatable specs. Awesome results.

We designed these cameras specifically for extended use in low light. Everything from the lens system, power efficiency, and firmware are built from the ground up for optimal use for paranormal investigations.

From battery life and mounting flexibility right down to a high quality sensor made for low light and battery life, we are confident you’ll find this the best for your investigations as well.

Day or night, Phasm has you covered.

Phasm Cam is not just for night vision anymore. Now you can turn your Phasm Cam into a daylight use camera. Now you can use it for daytime shots without the 'pink' color effect.

Just pop on the Phasm Lens Converter to go from full spectrum night vision to full color shots. Sometimes you need the flexibility to switch back and forth in a snap. Well, now you can with Phasm Lens.

Lens sold separately or as an add-on above.

Capture Better Footage with the Phasm Cam from GhostStop

alert icon TIP: For Best Results in Low Light

For night vision and low light situations we highly suggest increasing the exposure to +2. This will maximize the amount of light the camera allows into the lens which is helpful in low light situations when you need as much light as possible. It is possible we have already set as default on your camera. But it never hurts to check. To do this:

Press MODE (7) until you get to the SETTINGS screen with multiple icons on it.
Press NEXT (6) 2 times to select the VIDEO SETTING icon.
Press OK/SHUTTER (8).
Press NEXT (6) once to select EXPOSURE VALUE.Press OK/SHUTTER (8). Press NEXT (6) 2 times to select +2.0.

Storage Media / Micro SD Card

This camera is compatible with up to 128GB capacity microSD cards. We highly suggest using a 'standard' card that is Class 10 speed to ensure quality recording.
NOTE: Please try and stay away from cards with 'marketing' terms like 'PRO', 'EXTREME', 'GOLD'... any similar terms. They might be suitable in some situations. But not video. These kinds of cards can have compression software used to speed up the card processing. However, this can be detrimental when recording video because video recording, generally, assumes a consistent speed. As such, these cards with they're off-beat programming can cause issues with recording. If you come across issues where the recordings cut off at a certain point or just don't record at all, please try another STANDARD card. In this case, the cheaper the better.
If you still have issues with your 128GB card, try a smaller size, like 32GB.
Additionally, anything slower than Class 10 could cause disruptions in recording.

IR Light

Phasm Cam has a built-in night vision light. This infrared (IR) light is generally invisible to the naked, human eye. But the camera can use it to see in the dark over 20 feet with proper camera settings (see above).
To turn ON the infrared light: slide the IR Light Switch (4) to the up position. Slide it back down to turn it OFF.
The IR light can be used independantly of the camera use and it is powered sperately. This way you can use the IR light even when the Phasm camera is not in use - maybe to provide light for another camera you have. When the camera is not in use make sure to slide the IR Light Switch (4) back into the OFF position to keep from drawing battery life unnecessarily.
NOTE: The built-in night vision lights are infrared. As such, you will not see them projecting any light with the naked eye - only through the camera. Depending on the camera settings, this unit will generally allow visibility over 20 feet in total darkness. As with all cameras, more light equates to better picture quality. Since this camera was specifically built to couple with our Phasm Light, we highly suggest this as an accessories for a much brighter, quality image result.

    Phasm Camera

    Posted by FRED on Jan 25th 2024

    This item is really good, once I figured out how to connect it. The wifi connectivity helps a ton in settings and setup, however it took me some time to get the unit connected to Wifi, The issue could be fixed with better wifi connect instruction.

    Phasm Amazing product.

    I don’t use this for ghost hunting but needed a night vision camera. Amazing product.

    Very easy to use, overall very impressive night vision camera for the price. Good video quality. I also recommend getting the phasm light with this camera as well for maximum night vision and video quality. Only down side is the battery life, which is why i give it 4 stars instead of 5. But you can buy extra batteries or plug into USB pack.

    Great Camera & Video

    Posted by John Durham on Jan 20th 2023

    This is a great little cam I was really suprised to be honest the picture it takes and with the Phasm Light this is a powerful little dude. I was looking for a night vision camcorder to be honest but you just cant get a good 1 for 300 not possible they all suck I've talked to alot of people. Those china camcorders are kids toys really .... Anyhow this does the job well and you can connect to it through your phone to setup and control ect. Trust me the pic's this thing takes are awesome. I don't have a TV show to pay for camcorder so $300 is a good deal if you want a night vision cam, plus it has ultra violet you can't beat it. Splash

    Great Camera, low battery

    Posted by Aaron on Dec 2nd 2022

    I saw there was a low battery on these cameras. Though, with external batteries this is not a problem. In fact, with the batteries that I brought to Pennhurst, I ended up catching dozens of events with this camera, some even with the audio. I am looking forward to bringing this camera on further adventures to see what else I can capture. Thanks ghoststop, this is a genuine product that I know with a tripod. external battery, and an indoor investigation is a solid product! (Last notes: the battery lasted at high settings about 30 minutes. If you buy this camera, just have an external battery as it does record while charging!)

    Update to my original review

    Posted by Noah Yamashita on Oct 30th 2022

    This is my second review on the Phasm cam I have two and both are starting to have corrupted or missing files. I tried different SD cards. I tried different settings. But both still had the bad files and it's really frustrating cuz they missed a lot of stuff during my recent investigations.

    Best camera

    Posted by Martyn Brewer on Oct 20th 2022

    This the best full spectrum camera in a small form factor which pairs perfect with the light. Quality is good and recordings are sharp. I have 2 so far and will definitely get more

    This camera is outstanding!

    Posted by Rick H on Sep 19th 2022

    Used it for the first time Saturday night at the Gill House in Galion Ohio mostly for taking photos and got very compelling evidence with it. 4 photos with a misty figure and got a few orbs also! Battery life could be a little better but solved that by using a battery bank so I didn't have to keep charging it. Highly recommended for any investigation - definitely pair it up with the Phasm Light and you have one powerful investigation tool!

    Great tiny camera but short battery life

    Posted by Noah Yamashita on Sep 17th 2022

    I got to use it for the first time last night for my investigation. I loved how well it could see in the dark with the built-in IR light on. I love how lightweight it is. Easy to press to start recording. However, the battery life is pretty short. Will order more batteries and the power pack as well. Overall, it’s a great cam.

    Great little camera

    Posted by Williams on Sep 4th 2022

    This is a nice little full spectrum camera, with a handy built in infra-red light, and plenty of attachments to mount it. The magnet mounts are the handiest. The camera takes full spectra pictures too. You can see a continuous prism rainbow when looking into a CD or DVD. The wide angle is great for catching the whole room when placed in a corner. The angle is adjustable in settings too, in case you need it narrower. The full spectrum cameras have a pinkish huge when used in sunlight/full spectrumlight, unless a IR/UV filter is used. The wifi is real handy too for remote viewing and using a larger screen than is on the back of the camera. It is a compact camera with a little battery, so plan to use a USB power supply for normal use.

    Ir switch

    Posted by Chris Connolly on Jul 19th 2022

    Only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is the IR switch. Hard to turn on and off with large fingers. IR doesn’t turn off when you turn off camera. So just remember to turn off light when you are done.

    Used this on an investigation and it did great. Only 2 things I wish were better. 1 I do not believe it zooms in at all. I have not found a way so I’m assuming it does not. 2 the battery life is not very long but does record plugged into wall or with a external power pack which as the way I used it. Other than that I really like this and would definitely buy a few more to have to cover more areas at once. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good camera. I would also suggest buying the extra Phasm light that goes with it because it makes a world of difference in low light areas.

    Phasm Cam

    Posted by Patrick on Jun 9th 2022

    A great little camera! I'm not a paranormal researcher but I've wanted to get into full spectrum photography and video for the unique images it produces. For the price, this camera is great. I love the integrated IR light, the ability for 4K resolution, the magnetic base, the responsive wifi connectivity, and the housing and mounting extras. It delivers on what it promises. I'm very pleased.

    Posted by Tammy Raydon on Mar 28th 2022

    This camera is lightweight for travel, compact, but extremely powerful! Its pic quality even at 1080 is amazing and coupled with the Phasm light you will be able to use IR without running down the battery as quickly. The only downside is that the battery life is not very long, so get extra and also use a power pack to extend the record time. Also takes still pictures. Cannot wait to use this camera at Waverly in May 2022.

    Great upgrade

    Posted by John Boyd on Mar 21st 2022

    I now have both the ghostpro and phasm cam. The new camera is a nice upgrade, especially with the non waterproof case so I can pick up sounds while recording. Works very well in complete darkness when paired with a good IR light.

    Phasm Cam

    Posted by The Paranormal Nurse on Mar 15th 2022

    The Phasm Cam is a great little camera, With the Phasm Light it's a great set-up combo. Conducting paranormal investigations and documenting it, it's always essential to have a great working camera with night vision & full spectrum capabilities. But seriously look no further as this camera works perfectly well. I have a documentary paranormal series and I absolutely love shooting with this camera! The only reason why I didn't give 5 stars is it won't live-stream through the WiFi connection, but nonetheless a great buy for any paranormal enthusiast!

    Long Running!

    Posted by Jennifer Elwyn on Mar 14th 2022

    I was excited to get this camera as an upgrade to the full-spectrum POV's and was not disappointed. I recently ran this at a 2 day investigation and was able to record for 11 hours straight on a 128GB card (at 1080p60fps with the battery pack). I used to only get 5 hours max on the 32GB card. This is a game changer!

    This camera is great and compact, paired with the light which clicks together with magnets in awesome. I have caught some great evidence with it already. Having the ability to plug a usb power bank in while using it for long investigations is great. A must buy.

    Great Camera

    Posted by Donna Gerron on Feb 25th 2022

    I used it for the first time and got some good photos, I wish I had my Phasm light at the time so they would have come out a little better. I now have my light and can't wait to use them together. Overall, I recommend this camera!

    Posted by Cosmo on Feb 24th 2022

    Crazy how good this camera with the light is. I've spent so much money on other lights and cameras and non of them have worked more that a 6 to 12 inches from my face. Anyone looking for night time shooting this setup is a must. My gopro is nothing compared to this camera and with the light it doesn't pick up night shooting like the camera here does. I recommend everyone get both the camera and the light and you won't ever need another setup.

    Had an issue in the beginning..

    Posted by Taylor Detrick on Jan 17th 2022

    I was so excited to get this camera so my friends and I had better equipment. When It came in the mail, the power button seemed to be broken. Costumer service was wonderful and fast whe. I sent it back. I got another camera today and it works perfectly! I am so excited to use this as it is much better than any of the other camera we have for our investigations.

    Phasm camera

    Posted by Matt on Jan 14th 2022

    Ive been waiting on a camera like this for a long time. It has 4k recording in the dark and it couldn't be any clearer. My only suggestion is to buy a Phasm light so the one built into the camera doesn't run the battery down, and carry a power bank so you can record for hours while investigating. Regardless, another banger from the only place I buy my paranormal equipment.
