HTC RE Camera Review18
The Re camera is compatible with all tripods as it has a standard camera mount, but HTC has also announced plans to release several accessories for the RE camera: an adjustable clamp, a charging stand, a universal mounting stand, universal wall plug (charger), portable battery, and dual-port adapter.
The HTC Re Camera is a strange little shooter that has a fun and appealing style. However, it also has a steep price tag of $200, nearly double the price of rival action cams like the Polaroid Cube ($100), and the GoPro Hero ($130).
HTC is trying to position the Re as something a bit different than an action cam, though. It’s calling the Re a lifestyle camera, something you can use similarly well during your run or workout, and when you’re out with friends. And, with a convenient form factor, you have more possibilities to shoot from different angles and positions.
However, the Re falls short when it comes to pure photo and video quality with soft detail and slightly dull colors. Images captured with it are not necessarily bad, but they are not great either, and we’d expect a bit more from a $200 cam.
