FFIV: Spirit Flashlight
The Spirit Flashlight, also known as the Spirit Stone Flashlight (霊石灯, れい せき とう) is an invention of Dr. Kunihiko Asou and appears in Fatal Frame IV. It is powered by spirit stones, and is the only non-camera weapon in the Fatal Frame Series. It was given to Choushiro Kirishima by Sayaka Minazuki, to aid him in his search for her daughter, Ruka. It is unknown how she obtained it. The flashlight exorcises spirits of the dead using the moonlight. Unlike the camera it does not need time to recharge before another shot can be taken; however, there must be charge in the Lunar Spirit Power Meter, which recharges over time — upgrading the flashlight shortens the time it takes to recharge.

The Flashlight's capture circle is unlike that of the Camera Obscura; it is a circular beam of light that resembles the moon. As the Flashlight gains charge, the circle expands and becomes more translucent.
- The flashlight is only usable when there is charge in the power meter (月霊力メーター, lunar spirit power meter). If the meter empties, the flashlight must be returned to "Field Mode" (lowered) to recharge before it can be used again.
- At the beginning of each new game, all functions must be manually re-equipped from the Flashlight menu.
- Choushiro Kirishima is the only character who uses this weapon in the game.
