This week's Consumer Electronics Show has brought the unveiling of the Narrative Clip 2, which is the follow up to the popular portable wearable camera now featuring an improved camera, enhanced light sensitivity, and wide-angle optics.

The Narrative Clip 2 features a new 8-megapixel camera system with a range of 86°, along with a built-in Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth radios that allow for a user to access recent moments on the Narrative app for iOS. The camera also contains a new automatic photo capture feature that works with the Narrative Service to automatically sort photos into collections of moments for easy organization and access.

The Narrative Clip 2 comes with 8 GB of storage, but can also automatically upload photos and videos when connected to Wi-Fi to free space quickly. Narrative says that the device's battery life lasts for up to 30 hours on a single charge and comes with a removable mount for multiple clip options. The Narrative Clip 2 will ship later this year and will sell for $199.

Not to get political here, but I have heard that many police departments are looking to add something like this to police officers to both make them more accountable and to provide better evidence when making arrests. I think that in those types of situations, something like this makes sense; otherwise, it seems a bit narcissistic to film your life.

Yeah what?

You have got to be kidding!!

It's bad enough when someone pulls out their smartphone to take a pic or video or whatever. Big Brother is now everybody on the street, in the store, on the bus, hey even in the can.

I own the first Narrative Clip. Takes a photo every 30 seconds.

Biggest problem is there's no image stabilization. You're moving when you take the picture, you get blurry garbage. So 90% of the photos end up being blurry garbage

Also the server upload is slow as hell
