“The world’s first intelligent wearable camera” is a bold claim indeed. “Automatic, but quite bad photography” is probably more apt. In essence, Autographer is a wearable life-logging camera, but the addition of a sensor array and algorithm takes it to a higher level. Is this something we should make room for in our lives, or just another expensive gadget for the hipsters?

Developed by OMG Life, the Autographer is currently only available in Europe for £399 (over US$600), though of course we’ll be forwarding this one to the winner wherever they are in the world. Memoto is the closest competitor at just under $300 – a lot cheaper, but still on pre-order.

Update: priced reduced to £299. Will be available in the US for $399.

Specifications

  • 136° lens
  • Temperature sensor
  • Infra-red motion sensor
  • GPS
  • Magnetometer
  • Accelerometer
  • Colour sensor
  • 8 GB non-expandable internal memory (enough for around 27,000 photos)
  • 10-hour battery life on medium capture frequency

Initial Impressions

Ads by Google

With the Apple-esque white outer box removed, the product packaging is a smart translucent black, a white outline of the product just hinting at what’s inside.

packaging

Inside, everything is neatly packed in black foam. However, despite the luxury appearance of the packaging, the Autographer itself can only be described as tacky.

unboxing-2

Lightweight and feeling wholly insubstantial, the device is entirely plastic, and not even the nice rubberised matte-black kind that resists fingerprints; no, this is the shiny, cheap black plastic you’d expect on a sub-$50 smartphone.

autographer-main

In the box, you’ll find:

  • Autographer
  • Neck strap
  • Case
  • Yellow USB cable
  • Instruction booklet
  • Sticker and privacy card

in-the-box

A yellow cover indicates the shutter is closed, but it feels like this feature was tacked on at the last minute to alleviate privacy concerns. The lens cover twists round to open it.

Supplied with an adjustable strap for hanging around your neck, the plastic clasp is just too weak – a light tug on the camera opens it right up. It seems they tried to address this with the faux leather label that goes over the clasp, one end of which has some velcro which should, in theory, attach to the thread of the strap. But it doesn’t, not at all.

neck-strap

I opted to use the clip for a shirt pocket instead; you really will need to buy a new strap if you don’t wear shirts all the time.

clipped-on-shirt

A small blue OLED screen is used for adjusting the device settings; it’s only barely visible in bright sunlight, but otherwise easy to navigate despite only two buttons for adjustments.

screen

Setup and Pairing

Hold down the Action button (the lower of two) to turn on the device. There are only two buttons; once turned on, pressing the Action button will start a sequence of images, pressing the Menu button will end the sequence – this is for moments when you especially want a scene captured and don’t want to rely on the built-in algorithm. The Menu button cycles through the menu options. Immediately, I turned on Bluetooth and also what I thought was the quality up to high – it’s set on medium by default. Turns out that setting was actually capture frequency, so that’s best left on medium unless you want the images taken every minute or so.

Desktop software is provided, though there is no disk – it’s stored inside a special folder on the device itself, which you can access by plugging in the USB cable, otherwise you may download it from their website. Mac and PC software is supplied, so I’ll be taking a look at the Mac software later after actually taking some pictures.

Paring your iPhone or iPad is not required, but recommended for privacy concerns on the go; if someone requests that you delete their photo, you can do so immediately rather than having to promise you will do later. The app is simple enough, but I had to pair in the device settings of the phone, rather than doing so through the app itself – this could be a quirk of the iPhone 4 or iOS restrictions. No Android app is provided, but third parties may produce one in the future. Also, it’s worth noting that Bluetooth turns itself off to preserve battery life, so you’ll need to reactivate it every time you wish to access the device from your iPhone.

First Use

My first outing was taking the dog for a walk around my local parks – outdoors with good lighting. Subject matter aside, most of the shots came out alright, especially considering I was walking the entire time.

sample-outdoor-1

I did feel quite self-conscious initially, though this subsided after a few hours. The device is lightweight, but bulky enough to be noticeable. To most passers-by, I imagine it looks like a clam-shell phone, but as I passed the children’s playgrounds I realised how the situation could easily be misinterpreted.

sample-outdoor-3

I’ve never felt so simultaneously like a secret agent and a paedophile. It’s not illegal in the UK to take pictures in a public place, but I can see how most people would be apprehensive if they knew it was “secretly” snapping pictures every minute or so. The camera even comes with a card with tips on minimising issues when wearing the camera around other people; there are clearly legitimate privacy concerns here.

privacy-card

Battery Life

For a camera designed to be worn all day, you’d expect a good battery life – and Autographer thankfully delivers. Claiming 10 hours on medium setting, it can blow through a few thousand easily before requiring a recharge. The battery will run out well before the internal memory does, and since there’s no way to view the images on the device itself, there’s little reason to leave them on the device after syncing with the software.

Picture Quality

The photos really aren’t that great considering the price is akin to a budget DSLR camera – they tend to be overexposed outside, and many are taken during motion which naturally results in a slight blur. They’re about as good as you might get typically from a mobile phone, only with a fish eye lens to add interest.

sample-outdoor-2

Performance in low light situations is absolutely atrocious – at the Eurogamer Expo in London, photos were grainy at best, with 90% of the shots taken just being too dark or blurry to be in the slightest bit discernible. The ones below are from the 10% that weren’t instantly trashed.

Software

The included software is easy to pick up and more than functional – there’s a standard gallery view, a calendar view, and some meta information in the sidebar. The only unique aspect above and beyond something like iPhoto Save Space On Your Mac By Storing iPhoto & iTunes Libraries Remotely Save Space On Your Mac By Storing iPhoto & iTunes Libraries Remotely With my head held low with shame, I publicly admitted last week that I'm a digital hoarder.

It’s easy to highlight a series of your favourite shots to export a .gif or video, including the ability to add your own background track.

Should you buy the Autographer?

The Autographer strikes me as something that a celebrity of Justin Bieber proportions might find incredibly useful, especially if you could set it up to auto-tweet How to Build a Raspberry Pi Twitter Bot How to Build a Raspberry Pi Twitter Bot Twitter is the world biggest repository of short messages from people with nothing to say - and now you too can contribute to that epic project with an automated Twitter bot, powered by your Raspberry... Read More every single photo it takes. For the rest of us, I struggle to find a reason to take a photograph every minute of my life, particularly at a time when many find the notion of privacy to be ever more elusive.

Then again, just because the camera does capture a few hundred photos a day doesn’t mean you can’t trash most of them and keep only the best. The fish eye lens and the candid nature of automatic photography can lend itself to some pretty unique photos that you otherwise might have missed. Is it worth the £400 asking price though? Not a chance.

Our verdict of the Autographer:
Don’t buy it unless you’re as rich and famous as Justin Bieber.

    October 29, 2013 at 1:54 pm

    I think that it might be a good option for specific moments in which you both want to live the moment and not get distracted registering it but still want to have it recorded for the future. As this are rare, the use would be as well

    October 22, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    As a parent of two small children I find myself wishing I had an automatic camera to catch all the silly looks and tender moments. I could see this being useful for weddings, parties, outings with family and friends, or vacations to cool locales where it's best to be hands free. Like you mention in your article, unless there is some event you are trying to catch and memorialize specifically, you end up looking like a weirdo photographing everyone and everything.

    The Idea is Great and Worth Pursuing. The main idea is that it is wearable and very much indeed portable and can be used to make UHD or HD pics . This is much better then the camera idea of google glasses . and very much can go with fashion , If your buying the colour you require . This camera can be also good if they do some software updates to it

    I hadn't heard of life-logging prior to this article, but I can't imagine that becoming a "craze" in the near future. However, I did find some of the shots interesting. I don't think I would want to do a daily life capture through photos, but it might be interesting for creating virtual tours or field trips. It might also be interesting to create "day in the life of..." logs on farmers, construction workers or any other hands-on job to use in education. It would be interesting to pursue the possible uses in education.

    I don't think much about using the camera to document every area of my life; however, I do think that the camera itself is worth pursuing. It can be especially useful to document events that happen so quickly that you don't have time to "grab your camera" to photograph them.

    A life-logging camera is good, but it's definitely not something that should be used everyday. It's great for those moments when you're too caught up in the action and can't be bothered to really focus on taking pictures.

    I agree with Keith W that these cameras could easily be intrusive but in saying that so could lots of cameras these days. My 12 year old told me today she is going to learn photography and be famous and I'll be seeing her photos everywhere. If I won I would give it to her.

    I think it might be a good idea to actually take a leap from the current way of using a camera and using a life-logging camera. Change is Nature.

    It might be actually put up for a good use if you're a secret agent :P

    I am not sure if it is a good idea for life-logging just everyone! Egads. But I can see value here for people who are, for a lack of a better word, documenting certain things for certain people. Anything from a special documentary format for anyone to watch and learn, to a different kind of way to create and share memories from the family's last vacation!

    In general, a "life-logging" camera would only be for the anal retentive. For the greater portion of us real human beings it would only constitute another gismo we'd be carrying around.
    I could see some instances where it'd be useful. Sporting events (participant as well as spectator), life events (birthdays, parties, visits from relatives, yaddadda-yaddadda). But for every day use... get outta' here!

    It was my general understanding that the word "few" entailed a small number like, more than a couple... you know 3-5. At 10 minutes + that roughly comes out to 600 seconds and counting. SIX-HUNDRED is a tad more'n a "few"! But hang with me here, I know you guys have am excuse all ready. Something relevant and technical that I can neither verify nor attest to the verisimilitude of but it'll sure sound like it's reasonable and understandable given the conditions and circumstances... Fourteen minutes and counting...

    Why is it every time I receive a notice about a "Give-Away" and try to enter, the "This might take a few seconds" runs into the minutes without ever finishing? The last one I tried 9 times over the course of the give-away and only on the last day did it actually "ENTER" me into the contest. The rest of the times I'd fill out the info, wait a few MINUTES only to see nothing happen, then get up, go to the kitchen, pull out a bowl of grapes, pick them off the vine, wash them off then dry them a bit. Come back to my PC and the three progress blips are still blipping away like nothing in the world, like say being entered in the give-away, can make them stop.

    I'm not sure whether I'm this type of person, but if you're the type who likes to announce your comings and goings and your feelings about everything you experience on social media, then a life-logging camera could certainly make that a lot easier and more visual.
    It's definitely worth pursuing if you want to make your life an open book. I can't say I'm quite ready to do that myself, but I think I know more than a few folks who'd just revel in it.
    A life-blogging cam could be a pretty useful tool for a journalist, a critic, or anyone who simply wants to document a certain event or experience.

    What I find interesting about this whole record others digitally debate, is that currently the brain, in conjunction with the eyes, "records" things we see much like a camera (Hopefully) in front of our eyes. When one day we can "download" one's memories, what is the difference between this and what cameras do today, in relation to privacy? Also, what happens if we can do this download in any of those alive currently's lifetime - Will people have issue with what someone once observed about their family, possibly being shared with others locally, or getting on whatever global connection system (Currently the internet) we have then?

    • MakeUseOf TechGuy
      October 21, 2013 at 10:48 am

      That's an interesting point, but I think it's an incorrect interpretation of how the brain works. I think we'll find that actually a digital camera image is far more accurate than anything our brain stores. When looking at a scene, our brain extracts and stores concepts about it from other known ideas - rather than a photographic replica. So we might remember there's a tree there, but we don't remember every detail of the tree, rather we just remember roughly where it is in 3d space and draw from our existing knowledge of what trees should look like. You may recall a full scene because your brain will fill in the details dynamically, but whats actually stored is a fraction of that. In the same way witness testimonies will often make up details, but swear blind that was what they saw. This experiment involving replaying dreams I think best describes the process: http://www.businessinsider.com/scientists-replay-our-dreams-2013-4 - I doubt we'll ever do better than that. We'll be able to identify the rough concepts, but the brain itself is a critical part of reconstructing the missing information. Perhaps when we have neural computing devices, they will be able to do the same job (but, with the same faults as the human brain, I guess)

    • Morrison
      October 21, 2013 at 4:17 pm

      Thanks. Not sure my comment spoke to specifics of the level of detail that is stored, but you do bring up interesting points on this subject also. I wonder about the way you have described the brain as storing memories. I think most of science agrees that this is the basic concept, and agree that this is probably part of it, but the way it is described above, seems to not account for those memories where (one thinks) one can remember the smallest of detail (Unfamiliar shapes on a sign, words in a non germanic language (Presuming one only knows how to communicate in one language), unfamiliar species of plant, etc). I personally can't see how the brain only stores this information by extrapolation/concepts.

      Do think that we will end up using the brain / a powerful computing device, with appropriate "software" to access this info, at least at first. However, would hope we could remove some human elements from the normal memory recall process (Consciousness, Emotion, Intoxication, Concentration).

      However, to speak to the main point - Wasn't trying to suggest that the images rival each others accurateness/detail (If they did, we really need to figure out how memory works, to help with the information density of today's storage), but the general principle that the information (however rudimentary) is stored, and that I would presume that people that have a problem with the camera recording them without consent issue, now, wouldn't be comforted if the perpetrator used a VGA quality camera, instead of a 41MP camera :)

      Off to check out that article now - Cheers!

      P.S The link in the e-mail I got (http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/autographer-camera-review-and-giveaway/#comment-1344547) didn't bring me to my comment (or your reply), nor queue it up in the comments section (My second thought), on Chrome 29.0.1547.76, or IE 8 (Don't have Firefox handy, shockingly, right now)

    Life-logging cameras can be annoying for some.

    Well considering what most of the social media posts I see are about, there are a lot of people that would love to have a life logging camera. For some reason people seem to want to share every aspect of their life with the internet. I am sure there is a large of enough market for something like this, but not at that price, it needs to be affordable for the average person. So yes, it is worth pursuing if they can get that ridiculous price down.

    I would personally use around the house or at the park when I am with my daughter. There are so many times she is doing something totally cute, but I can't get my camera out in time to catch it. With this camera active, those moments would be captured (As long as the lighting was good).

    Attach it to a pet to see how it spends its day.

    I'd love to have it to document driving trips and such to different places. A moving maps sort of thing.

  210. tbarnstormer
    October 18, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    Could be fun. Might be of use if in the private detective business or something requiring photographic recall. Sounds more like a novelty than a useful item. Especially at that price.

  211. Al C
    October 18, 2013 at 4:57 pm

    This would be a good way to record a holiday or some public event - but there are real privacy concerns here. In the UK you would would need to get permission to photograph in private property, and certain environments might exclude photography (in schools for example)
    .

  212. B. Lerner
    October 18, 2013 at 4:52 pm

    I would say it would be something fun to hvae, specially if you have kids & want to 'recort' their movement from toddlers to elementary school to high school & beyond. However, I could also see some people feeling it's a huge invasion of privacy -- look at how some view the Google street project.

  213. James B

    Perfect for police work

  214. Margaret McCarthy

    The idea of life-logging is interesting, but other than for personal use, I think this invades privacy too much.

    On trips or vacations to catch scenes one might miss out on at the spirit of the momento.

  220. Deborah H
    October 18, 2013 at 4:19 pm

    When I think of capturing so many pictures, I think of the moments I wished I'd been able to do that when my children and grandchildren came out with some cute comment or amazing look on their faces. I still have grandkids in and out of the house; it would be great to have one.

    An argument could be made that life logging cameras should be worn by police officers or others who might end up in court because of their jobs. If everything is recorded, then it is hard to deny something happened.
    I don't really agree with that level of technological interference with my life, but there are times I wished I had something like this to get me out of hot water.

  230. Mark Waldoch

    I think it would be AWESOME to record not only every day events but for those special people in our lives who might not know you..like if I was needing to make sure my grandchildren know who I am and where they come from. YOu also never know when **it will hit the fan, so it is great to have this baby handy to record it!

  264. Janel M.
    October 18, 2013 at 12:11 pm

    I think it's an interesting, but not "good" idea. I could see it being useful when, say, hiking alone to track where you were. Or when doing activities like kayaking to capture unique views of your surroundings.

  265. Kim J
    October 18, 2013 at 11:31 am

    Yes, perfect for just having fun with it!

    For that kind of cash, I would get a GoPro, Google glasses, or something else with better picture quality. Maybe just save the money and use my smart phone. I really don't see the practical use unless you are just very self absorbed with your lifestyle that you have a need to constantly take photos of how awesome you think your life is.

  287. Richard Montalvo
    October 18, 2013 at 4:53 am

    I think the idea of life-logging cameras could be one useful for somebody that might travel a bit, or maybe even travels a little. I think it'd be incredibly convenient for such a scenario: when you go somewhere new and exciting, you could just wear the camera and forget about worrying about not taking any pictures. Forgetting to take pictures is a really big issue of mine: I'll go to conventions and things that have a lot of cool people there and practically millions of image-taking opportunities and I will have a grand total of three images when all's said and done, simply because I get caught up in the action too much to remember to take my dumb camera out and use it :P With a camera that just automatically takes pictures for me like the Autographer, I can just set it, forget it, and my only worry would be if it takes a great deal of images worth saving or not.

    As for privacy issues being sort of a concern, I could see how that'd be so... But couldn't such a scenario be solved simply by not having it automatically uploading images, then blurring out any faces that might not want to be photographed before uploading them? A little Photoshop goes a long way :P

  288. Jasmin Jat
    October 18, 2013 at 4:44 am

    I've always love taking pictures especially with my love ones. I am not sort of a selfie person but sure does into taking pictures of my family or with them and for those around me. This gadget is really going to be a huge plus. Thanks for this, and what a great review then again. Kudos.

    October 18, 2013 at 2:51 am

    Great idea if done right and lighter the better. As for use case scenarios, how about documenting the entire childhood of your child or a way to enjoy a memorable moment in their life without having to witness it through a cameraphone/SLR viewfinder.

    You could use this to log a route if you are a driver also. I would use this quite often with the big family we have. I'd like to capture our Life's Moments!!

  304. Robert S
    October 18, 2013 at 12:42 am

    They are great for some uses, such as people involved in political activism. Or to capture a daily activity with family, keeping it subtle by not having a blatant camera out to capture those special moments.

    would be useful like on vacation or on an exciting trip. however,in daily life it's not very useful. but i think for people with little kids it would be awesome,like for me! i cant have my camera with me 24/7 bt this camera would just capture all those moments... :)

  308. Mahesh K

    I'm not the kind of person who remembers to carry a camera around to catch every little thing - it kind of slips my mind, even when I wish I had a camera for that very moment. Something that's set and forget, with an option to edit the se lection later would be extremely useful.

  330. Melissa M
    October 17, 2013 at 3:02 pm

    Because of liability issues I would have to say nay. Its a cool idea but not worth the hazzard

  331. Ryan
    October 17, 2013 at 2:44 pm

    Its useful for journeys,trips and vacations so you have something to remember your POV of your trip. This would be good for attaching to my Motorcycle and would be fun to see how I maneuver through traffiic and busy roads :)

  336. Olly
    October 17, 2013 at 2:15 pm

    I really wanted one of these to wear at my wedding. I can imagine it being ideal for big life events where you don't want to be stuck behind a lens all day. You get your memories and you actually get to "live" in the moment a bit more. I can't see the point of this for daily use, but the candid shots you could get at big family gatherings would be amazing :-)

  337. Sande
    October 17, 2013 at 2:13 pm

    ...a more pedestrian version of google glasses. I could see valid reasons to use this - documenting situations and just for personal interest.

  338. Stephan H

    I found this review to be very informative. I've been curious about "life logging" ever since I first heard about it. However, I had never considered the privacy issues, which you mention in the review. Considering the litigious nature of our environment these days (I live in the U.S.), I think I'll have to continue to live without "logging." Pity, that. It could have created some interesting images, and I just don't feel like carrying a camera around all day!

    I think it would be kind of awesome to go back and see the photos of your every day life. Might put a new prospective on life.

    I'd like to see if my 3 year old would wear it.

    I'd say it would be good for vacations or special occasions, when sometimes you'd rather just be in the moment rather than spend you're whole time looking through a camera.

    I'm thinking that I could use the supplied neck strap while visiting a nude campground for a-day-in-the-life "expose'". LOL

    It could be nice, but still a pity that the pictures are still a bit of low quality.

    But it sure is a nice gadget. :-)

    A camcorder might be more useful for example to document situations that may end up in legal disputes.
