HTC is known for Android smartphones, but today, they brought us a completely new product called Re camera. This is a digital camera independently associated with an Android or iOS smartphone and is designed to make taking pictures easily and quicker.
HTC Re Camera looks like the Go Pro, a popular name in the field of action cameras, but HTC said Re camera does not cater to adventure sports which are mainly used for normal daily life.
Introduced along with the HTC EYE Desire Smartphone, HTC Re Camera born as an inevitable result of the tendency to diversify existing product. Re camera launched to cater to the needs of high quality mobile photography and video shooting wherever you go.
In terms of features, it is made of glossy plastic, water resistant for use when you are in the pool, the top is curved clusters cameras like the water pipe, there is a button to shoot. There is a small round button to shoot slow-motion video or time-lapse.
The HTC Re camera is equipped with 8GB of internal memory with support for microSD card, wide angle lens with a 16MP CMOS sensor, Re Camera can connect with your smartphone via Wi-Fi, a pity that HTC has not equipped features optical image stabilization for Re although it is a dedicated video capture device.
HTC Re camera priced Rupees 9,990, a pretty competitive price, compact design, a button on the front and a button at the back, and a few LED lights. No viewfinder, no display, and no user interface. 16 MP image sensor is placed behind it with an ultra-wide angle up to 146 degrees, the lens has a fixed focal length and can shoot 1080p video at 30 fps or slow motion at 720p-120 fps.

HTC also offers a variety of accessories for Re Cameras, including a handle attached to a bicycle and an external case for better waterproofing.
There is no power button to turn it on, Re camera designed automatically turns on when you put it up.

The buttons on the front of the device is used to switch to slow motion recording mode. LED for video recording signal flashing red and slow motion flashing green.

However, it is not really a good choice to replace a smartphone, it takes too much time to boot from sleep mode, the time taken is also longer and image quality will not match with a high-end smartphone.
HTC said they are constantly improving our software on Re Camera, so it can improve the operating speed and image quality over time before you start to be sold to consumers. But the most difficult thing here is how can we convince people that they need a camera of Rupees 9,990, replace to their smartphones to take photos.[easyazon_block add_to_cart=”default” align=”left” asin=”B00NW39XM8″ cloaking=”default” layout=”top” localization=”default” locale=”US” nofollow=”default” new_window=”default” tag=”httpwwwtec0c2-20″]
