Phasm Full Spectrum Light
Night vision + full spectrum + total control
This is not your average camera light. As paranormal investigators, we wanted to create a light that solves more of our needs at once. Phasm is the first and only light to offer so many lighting options in one compact device. Whether you need infrared for night vision, ultraviolet, various colors or all of those at the same time for one stunning blanket of light, this device does it all. Controls on the back provide the ability to easily adjust which lights to use and adjust brightness. Its unique mounting system allows you attach the light to a standard tripod or bracket but also magnetize to anything metal for awesome flexibility. You can even snap multiple Phasm lights together to create a beastly stack of illumination and name it, 'MegaLight'.
Night vision plus...
- Full spectrum light
- Infrared night vision, ultraviolet and visible color
- Full control over light selection, brightness and color
- Wide angle spread for ultimate light coverage
- Unique magnetic and tripod mounting system
- Rechargeable battery and plug for unlimited power
Stunning light and options in a compact package.
You'll be amazed by the brightness this light can project from a device that fits in the palm of your hand. Phasm is packed with 65 high power light emitting diodes (LED) that throw a powerful punch of infrared (IR), ultraviolet (UV) and visible color (RGB) light.
The Phasm light utilizes ultra wide angle LEDs in order to cover the entire camera area with no problem. This means no more 'spot' effect and even brightness from edge to edge of your picture.
How does Phasm compare against other lights?
Many light combinations. One awesome package.
You are in control.
Phasm gives you full control with one light that does it all. Sometimes you just want to use infrared for night vision. Maybe you want to blanket the room with color. Other times you may want to take full advantage of full spectrum. Now you can do it all with one light.

Magnetic mounting beyond the tripod.
Firstly, yes you can mount this light to a standard tripod or bracket. We have included a standard metal threaded mount on the bottom for securely attaching to a typical tripod or threaded bracket. But that's where 'standard' ends.
Phasm utilizes an array of powerful magnets on each side, top and bottom for ultimate mounting flexibility. This magnetic system allows you to secure multiple lights together if you want supreme multi-light power. Built-in powerful magnets snap Phasm lights together for a secure grip with no hassle. You can mount the light to any magnetic 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 tripod available or the flexibility of using tape to mount things on location. Just find a metal surface, zap Phasm into place and go.
Camera lights are one of the biggest battery eaters, especially for ghost hunters. As investigators, we use lights for hours on end and infrared light is a huge drain on power. Phasm is out to change that. This light utilizes technology to intelligently access the most light power possible with light management, battery life indication and simple recharging. Since Phasm utilizes a standard USB port for charging, you can plug it into any USB for a quick charge. It will even work while plugged into an outlet or USB battery pack for unlimited use.
Mounting & Accessories
Phasm has a built-in metal tripod mount. This makes it easy to mount directly onto a tripod or bracket with standard threads. We recommend the accessory bracket listed below for flexibility in mounting this with a camera. We also have a shoe adapter to allow mounting to a camera or bracket with a hot shoe or cold shoe mount. See below for these and other helpful accessories.
This product is made right here at GhostStop.
*NOTE: The infrared (IR) light on this product are virtually invisible to the naked eye. To take advantage of night vision capabilities, you must have a full spectrum or night vision camera. See the 'Directions' tab above for details.

POWER & CHARGINGPhasm is powered by a rechargeable battery. To charge the device use the provided USB-C charging cable to connect to a USB power source. This could be a computer with a USB power, USB power strip or USB battery pack for quick mobile power. When charging the battery icon on the back display will flash one bar. The device is full charging when the battery icon is full bars and solid. To plug the device into a AC power outlet, you will need to use a USB to AC power adapter (not provided).
Battery life on Phasm depends greatly on the settings - brightness most of all. To save battery life, adjust the brightness level to what you need for the scene. There will be few cases where you need full 100% to get a good shot. In most residential cases, 20% will likely do just fine and get the most life possible. See the chart below for sample times we have tested to gauge how much life you can get on various settings.

LIGHTINGPhasm utilizes an array of 64 high powered lights including 56 infrared (IR) LEDs, 4 visible color (RGBW) LEDs and 4 ultraviolet (UV).
The infrared (IR) LED lights on this unit emit virtually no visible light. The human eye cannot see infrared light but a proper camera can. You must have a full spectrum or night vision camera that can see infrared light to take advantage of night vision capabilities. For non-IR capable cameras you can use the visible color lighting functions of Phasm Light.

Great product! The battery lasts longer than anything I’ve used. Bright! Lights up the room.
This thing has it all! Thanks so much! Also, amazing support from Bob at GhostStop!
I was very excited to receive this light and was not disappointed! The quality of the build is excellent and the size is perfect. What I found out when using IR and Full spectrum combined with one of the lights ( example: Red) allows the user to be able to see where they are going and not be in total darkness relying on the cameras view finder. I love this light and will definitely buy a few more soon.
I was excited to try this light out. IR performance is amazing and is the best I have seen thus far. Other lighting features such as adjustable color and intensity are top notch. I highly recommend the Phasm light.
We received our lights a couple of days ago. Tonight I tested one light in our house with my SONY AX100. So far this light is a powerhouse. I can't wait to try it in the field with our static cams in much larger rooms and see how well they work there also how well the battery holds up. I love it so far
Just received our three lights that we will be testing out this evening and will probably be buying more down the road if they work as expected. Would like to see stronger magnets but these are a wonderful light and well over due
Got this the other day and been wanting to try it out. Well I took it out of the box one night and sat in my backyard and I am happy with this little thing. The light selections itself make navigating a dark house a breeze. My significant other does photography and now she wants one because of the light color combo settings. I used the RED and Orange function to look for one of our cats that likes to hide in the bedroom at night. Once stuff opens up due to Covid, I am for sure taking this out to an investigation.
Great light! The IR really works well! Can't comment on the UV as I don't have a full spectrum camera yet, but that addition of the colored lights will really be helpful! Tests I've run so far in full IR mode with the red lights active will be extremely helpful! Can gather video evidence with a little bit of extra light when needed that doesn't interfere with what's caught on video.
Already plan on ordering a few more of these lights. We use full spectrum cameras along side standard IR ones and this light is everything we need.
