The Latent Image Sensor is a piece of equipment Peter Venkman is seen carrying during the montage in Ghostbusters II. It is unknown what it does.


  • On June 19, 2016, the prop went up for auction at a starting bid of $6000. It was described as "one of the high tech paranormal activity detectors used by the team in the beloved supernatural comedy. Consisting of a lantern-shaped machine prop with integral metal handle and round base. Constructed of metal, acrylic, copper, and electronics. Measuring 16.5 x 10.25 x 6.5 in. the sophisticated mechanism is activated either by a small button on the left of the handle or a button at the rear of the base. When turned on, the interior mechanism comes to life. The base lights up and oscillates, the central sensor cone flashes with red, green and yellow lights as gears manipulate it up and down, and a metal comb in an acrylic dome incrementally revolves around the interior. A 3.75 x 1.5 in. motor is affixed to the top base." [1]
