Travel Product of the Week: Autographer

AutographerI can’t count the number of times I wish I’d had a wearable camera to capture the images I was seeing instead of either missing them or putting myself and others in danger. Like the time I tripped down a United Airlines plane stairs on the island of Kona because I was so excited to be there and was foolishly trying to take photos while carrying my bag—and not holding the handrail.

Well, if I’d had the new Autrographer—in Kona and all the other places—then things would have gone down differently. The Autographer uses five different built-in sensors to automatically capture images hands-free so users can live in the moment rather than behind a lens. No more timers that might miss the perfect shot, or having to fiddle with any buttons at all. Autographer is so intelligent that it knows how best to capture your daily activities without you having to do anything. Just turn it on, clip it to your shirt and go about your day. When you’re done, connect the camera to your laptop or smartphone to upload your images and share with friends and family.

The Autographer is made by the Oxford Metrics Group which has over 28 years’ experience in technological innovation. The Autographer’s componentry includes:

  • 8 GB internal memory
  • 5 onboard smart sensors + GPS (ambient light/accelerometer/magnetometer/PIR/temperature)
  • Bluetooth
  • 136º field of view
  • Glass hybrid wide angle precision optics
  • Fixed focus
  • 5 MPx low light sensor
  • Dedicated smartphone app view, tag and share the images
  • Weight: 58g
  • Width 37.4mm (with side buttons)
  • Length 90mm; 95.5mm (with lanyard ring)
  • Thickness 22.93mm (with clip and lens)

The camera was launched in the UK but is available now in the U.S. for $399 on Amazon.
