Kirlian Photography Device

Kirlian Photography Device

The Model 3 has all photography functions on the front panel.


These include the on/off power switch, discharge switch, Hi-Low frequency switch and variable frequency control. The discharge plate is located on the left hand side of the device. The terms discharge plate and film plate mean one and the same.

The on/off switch provides main power to the circuit. discharge switch is a momentary contact switch that applies the electrical power to the discharge plate. The frequency control varies the frequency of the electrical power going to the discharge plate.

Additional Features:

  • 1/4" Jack for connecting a foot switch. Allows photographer to activate discharge using the foot switch. Using the foot switch allows the photographer to free his or her hand.
  • This device is designed to work with all 4" X 5" color, b/w 4" X 5" sheet film and paper as well as polaroid film.
  • Make to used with transparent discharge plate to create kirlian photographs using standard lens cameras: digital, film and video.

Paranormal Claims for Kirlian Photography Devices for Sale on the Internet


There are numerous Kirlian devices being sold on the internet today. To sell their devices the corona discharge in the resulting kirlian photograph is claimed to be paranormal or hold information that can be decrypted by the company's Kirlian researchers. All my research to date shows the corona discharge can be explained by employing known physical laws, like changes in subjects skin resistance (due to factors like; stress-lying, illness, fatigue, alcohol consumption, etc) without the necessity of invoking paranormal (bio-plasma) factors. Some other variable factors influencing the resulting Kirlian picture including the object's pressure against film, air humidity, air pressure, voltage, frequency, and exposure time. If anyone has any evidence to the contrary, I would be more than happy to examine that data.


We have never made any "paranormal" claims to sell our Kirlian photography devices


Our devices are sold to make brilliant Kirlian photographs. If one wants to do paranormal research with our devices that fine. Just know we make no claim that any interpretation of the corona discharge is due to anything other than standard variable physical parameters as already outlined previously. If you discover something different, please let us know. We are open to examine any new evidence or data that comes along. Kirlian photography devices and components that are available are provide below. Sample pictures taken with our devices are shown in the Gallery.


Aura Cameras


I am asked frequently about the Aura cameras for sale. From what I understand from their sales information, these aura cameras measure the galvanic skin resistances from the subjects hand. A computer uses that skin resistance information to produce and colorize an aura around the subject on a monitor. A copy of the monitor image is printed and sold to the customer. Is this Kirlian photography? No it is not. Aura cameras and the photographs they produce are not being sold or marketed as Kirlian cameras and Kirlian photographs. Many people are making the erroneous connection to Kirlian photography since the corona discharge photographed around the subject in the Kirlian photograph is many times referred to as an aura. Kirlian photography is a photograph of a high voltage corona discharge around the subject.


What's my opinion of these cameras and their resulting pictures? From the sales data we know that whomever programmed the computer to colorize the "aura" from the GSR information also choose what color to assign. As far as I know, Galvanic Skin Resistance (GSR) is an indicator of stress, but only after a baseline has been established for that particular subject. I have not seen any scientific data to assign any other meaning, other than stress, to the GSR in human subjects. So to interpret the colorize aura to mean anything significant, other than a possible stress level, is in my opinion and at this point in time is invalid.
