It is just me.

Hi there I am from Newcastle Australia, I just bought the Pentax K-x kit and have one 18-200 lens with it. I like to go on ghost hunt tours and shooting orbs and the like and I am also a lover of nature.

Welcome to the forum. I've been on many ghost hunts myself, but have never gotten a thing. Not even 1 lousy orb. Don't know if there are any such things, but the tours are fun. Have you gotten anything?

yes I got some Orbs!

Yes I have some certainly but not yet with the new Pentax K-x camera but with the old Pentax Optio we still have, we went to the Melbourne goal and we took a shot underneath the hangman’s bar and there we got two orbs. I zoomed in to the two orbs so you can see them better. I do not know of some one else of the forum got any success with taking photo's of Orbs can you let us know what settings you used please!

@ivke61,
You're shooting directly into lights. You've got FLARE! Not the same as flair, unfortunately, just an optical effect that many of us try to avoid except for artistic skulduggery.

No light there to shoot in!

They are certainly not lens flares, there was no light to shoot in! Lens flares happen when you shoot in to the light and the flare it self becomes larger towards the camera. If you think I was shooting into the light can you point out the light source on the photo please! And I can certainly give you more prove of a lot more orbs then those two alone.

I see two light sources near the top of the picture, another near the bottom. All are point sources, the kind that cause such flaring.

Yes I can see those, but flares are coming from the direction of a light source and I can clearlly see here that, that is not happening here?

Welcome to the forum. It appears that you have a flare for orbs! I don't know how much help is available here for the supernatural, but I bet there will be a lively discussion if you start a thread.
I also just got a K-x, and like the early results.
