HTC Re Action Camera for Non-Professionals


RE camera by HTC looks like asthma inhaler or periscope. It is hard to imagine at first time, but this device can shoot great photos and super videos. Who would want another camera when we have smartphones and super professional GoPRO action shooting camera? HTC decided that we would, although the company does not intend to compete with GoPro camera. Firstly,  it is very easy to use. The device turns on automatically by just touching it. Comparing to smartphones, that is super easy – you don’t have to unlock your screen and touch the icon through list of many apps. Just start taking photos or videos once you hold it. The disadvantage is that, you can’t view what photos you are taking right after taking those photos. However, you can view them while connecting to your smartphone, which automatically identifies the device if the app is installed. It has wide angle lens(f/2.8) and it can record video under 1 meter deep water.  It supports bluetooth, wifi and micro-USB with 16MP
1/2.3″ CMOS sensor camera.  The price of this gadget is very fair $200 for professional like camera of this type.
