    Its the sign that a ghost is there... you see em on most haunted

    No, its a bit of dust on the lens or sensor, or a speck of water, or a secondary refraction from the lens interior.

    Out of focus dust near to the lens illuminated by the flash,

    I never knew what they were until last year when someone on holiday pointed them out on nearly all of our photos.

    In answer to your question, no.

    No - it's a sign that there's a droplet of water on the camera's lens.

    Just out of interest is your camera a Fuji, if so what model. My question is not relating to the orb by the way.

    I am still amazed at how Most Haunted is on its umpteenth series and they have never proven anything.

    The pattern on the curtains to the right of the candles looks like a tiger grinning. What this means i don't know, but i think we should be careful.

    Easy way to find out these things is to download the photo, right-click and properties, and under the Details tab, you'll see the EXIF data. How much EXIF data a photo contains depends on the camera, but they almost always include a camera model number, and his is, as you rightly guess, a Fuji camera. The z5fd to be precise.

    picture is massive but

    To late called the Ghostbusters, but they were to busy.

    Believe in Spirits not Orbs. What are they dead dust?

    I do believe in orbs as a sign that someone is there with you, I have some great photos from my cousins wedding and in all the photo's he is in there is an orb just over his shoulder, not just in one location but in the church, in the churchyard at the reception this orb is always there and only with him, even on ones where he happened to be in the background,

    I have tried rationalizing this, ie is it reflection from something he is wearing? No he changed clothes,

    Something on/in the camera? = No as it was on photo's taken by others too, there is no common denominator to explain it other than himself being in the photo's.


    Just over a year later at his daughters Christening the orb re-appeared but brighter and again in several peoples photo's where my cousin was in the shot.

    Here's what gets me thinking, at the time of the wedding we didnt know his mum had just been diagnosed with lung cancer (the day before and she hadnt told anyone so as not to put a dampener on the wedding) , the christening was held two weeks after his mothers death.

    Sorry to hear that but it's just a co-incidence. It seems like once you noticed a similar effect in a few pictures you tried to give it some meaning, but its just dust.

    Put some of the pics up harlzter? lol

    No such thing as orbs or ghost for that matter , So called orbs are just dust...ive taken tons of pictures and have tons of pictures with those blobs but they arnt orbs.

    Programs like most hunted are fake , they even state its for entertainment only but it amazes me how many gullible people are about

    How many programs about ghost have been on and have one ever caught a ghost on camera no otherwise it would be on the news , wake up and smell the coffee

    yours is nothing to the one i took in the cavern under pembroke castle last year! here's the pic

    took another more impressive picture at my house, my daughter is in it though so think it's best if i don't upload it on here

    I believe in orbs. But all they are out of focus dust, pollen, water etc etc particles. To suggest they are anything else requires a huge leap of logic and their is no evidence to suggest otherwise.

    there was no dust in the cavern as it was very damp in there and there was nothing reflective. how do you explain my picture?

    Water droplets.

    Just because you can't explain the picture does't mean that is unexplainable and if even no one can't explain it does't mean that is a supernatural event. I would suggest it is a reflection off the flash from rain drops / moisture droplets which is ouy of focus.

    Thanks for the tip. I thought it was a fuji as it has the same crap look that mine has in low light. The sort of painted on canvas effect.

    If someone gives me some money ill find them some orbs:p

    Hey guess what if you want to make money or your guesthouse aint doing so well... i know lets say its hunted :whistling:

    You are trying to establish what has caused the effect in the picture, there are so many simpler and explainable theories before you get to 'it was the spirit of a dead person that either very quickly became visible in order to emit or reflect light at the instance the camera's flash was activated then disappeared OR emits light at wavelengths that both sensors in the human eye and the camera's sensor can detect BUT only was visible to the camera's sensor for some reason'

    Water droplets.



    that float sideways?

    That is most likely movement of the camera during exposure.

    You are right its a ghost quick phone bbc news with this amazing Story ,i did once see a shape shifter , also saw a vampire last night but damm i didnt have my camera.

    Or water droplets small enough that they are influenced more by air movements than gravity.
