The Model 5 for Shooting Kirlian Photographs using
Digital Cameras, Video (low light), and SLR Film Cameras
The Model 5 includes an adjustable high voltage power supply, Transparent Discharge Plate (TDP) and Ground Plate (GP).
The high voltage power supply top panel controls include the on/off power switch, discharge switch, Hi-Low frequency switch and variable frequency control.
The Transparent Discharge Plate (TDP)allows you to shoot kirlian photographs using standard digital cameras, film and video (low light).
The black Gorund Plate (GP) makes it easier to ground inanimate objects.
We recommend the digital camera have a macro mode (close-up) and the ability for long multi-second shutter speed. (1-15 seconds is good).
- 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 has an optional sheet film adapter (not included) designed to work with all 4" X 5" color, b/w 4" X 5" sheet film and paper as well as polaroid film.
- Input voltage to the Kirlian device is 117-120 VAC at 60 HZ
The Model 5 is also availabe to rent.

We Do Not Make Any Paranormal Claims for the
Kirlian Photography Devices We Sale on the Internet
Some Kirlian devices sold on the internet today make paranormal claims. We do not. All our 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!
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.
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.
