A forgettable product. It isn't bad, exactly, but also doesn't do anything particularly well.

How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

OMG Life wants to make capturing every moment easier with the Autographer, but its subpar image quality doesn't live up to its high price point. The Autographer succeeds at one thing, and that's in being unobtrusive, with T3 saying it's "light enough to clip to your T-shirt pocket or neckline without pulling either down disastrously or without you noticing the weight." But it really falters in the other area where it needs to perform well to be worth wearing everywhere -- the quality of the images it takes. PC Mag says the images are "subpar" and PC Pro finds that "motion blur was a common problem" resulting in "unclear images," and that's if it even grabs an image at all -- The Next Web says "the times where I thought, I really hope it got a snap of that, it hadn’t." If the point of the Autographer is to create a record of your life, it simply isn't living up to that promise.
