    First off, let me preface this by saying that this isn't a joke at all. I'm am freaking the fuck out right now.

    Alright, so here's the story - I went out with two friend to shoot part of my final photo project. I love broken / run down buildings, so naturally thats what I decided to shoot. I have to shoot film for class so I let the girls that were with me use my 30d. I set the 30d on ISO 1600 and AV mode at like f/2.2 and handed over the camera. They were going around taking pictures while I was setting up my tripod for my film rebel. I get my tripod set up and got my camera on the tripod. I went to Autofocus the camera and It wouldn't do anything. I tried turning it off and turning it back on - nothing. I looked at the back screen and it said the batteries were dead. Great. So I pulled the batteries out to see what kind they were. CR2's. Ok good. I've got my poverty wizards out in the car - they run on CR2's. I'll run out and get the battery from them. So I run out and grab the poverty wizard receiver and bring it back in with me. As I'm fiddling around with getting the battery cover off, one of the girls snaps two quick photos of me with the 30d. No biggie. I thought nothing of it.

    So I pull the battery out of the poverty wizard and mix it with one of the batteries that was in the camera. I turn the camera on. It takes a second to power up, but then the same thing happens. Low battery light blinks. I usually leave my poverty wizards turned on so having another low battery wouldn't be surprising. Oh well. It was worth a shot. Gotta go to Wal-Mart tonight and come back tomorrow. No big deal.

    I get the 30d back from the girls and shoot a few shots with the tripod. Everything works wonderfully. I throw the cameras in the bag and think nothing of them. I pull them out today to import the photos from the 30d and take a look at my film camera again. As I'm importing the photos from the 30d, I take out the batteries from my poverty wizard receivers and put them in the film camera. 1/2 battery power left. Alright - so I can go shoot today. Awesome. Then I put the original batteries back in the film camera. Turn the camera on. Boom - full battery power. :wtf: ? So I leave the camera on for a minute or two to make sure that the reading isn't just the batteries shocking the camera with whatever power is left i them. It doesn't. Weird. I text my friend and tell her what happened. She texted back "that's weird." This had happened to me before in an old boiler room that had caught fire on the grounds of the insane asylum a few miles from my school except my camera wouldn't auto focus. I think it's probably because of the low light and the f/3.5 of the 18-55 kit lens I was using at the time. But that's besides the point.

    As I'm looking through the pictures, I find these:

    You tell me what it looks like. These were shot with my 30d by the girls. I'm literally shitting a brick right now. In the first one, I see an outline of a person wearing a white shirt with a jacket on and a hat. I don't know what I should do. This is not a joke, I promise you. I really wish I could have gotten some film pictures of this. I didn't get to take a single one of the building at all. It just seems kinda peculiar to me that my film camera wouldn't work at all. That's what makes this so scary to me. :eek3:

    Kinda looks like lens flare. Check the ones before and after and see it the same effect is there. Usually the camera only picks things up in one out of a series.

    first picture

    the outline of his right shoulder and back are the outline in the top right corner of the picture, or the top left segment of your ghost.

    no ghost in either of those pictures




    :noes: ghosts have inverted the cross!!

    If that's a ghost then someone should really analyze Tomash's camera because there are ghosts in 90% of his pics. :rofl:

    Thats what really mad it odd for me. Otherwise I would have just looked at these pictures and ruled it out as flare.
