The apparatus for `personal imaging' consists of a combination of the author's `existential computer' invention (hardware portion also referred to as the ``wearable computer'') with an electronic camera as the primary input device. Personal imaging, a conceptual framework around this simple apparatus, is first presented as a new research area, and then applications to the visual arts, and to personal documentary, are presented.
