HTC begins to branch out from the mobile world with its first lifestyle camera
The HTC RE (henceforth referred to as the HTC Re camera) is a small, handheld camera that works as a standalone device, as well with Android and iOS. It's a 16-megapixel shooter using a Sony DSC sensor that is pretty fun to use — just hit the button up top to start shooting. It does still pictures as well as video and includes a slow-motion mode, and time-lapse mode.
It's easy to see how the Re camera would compete against something like GoPro, even though it's definitely targeted at the non-extreme crowd. That said, it'll have a number of accessories that will let you move the Re camera out of your hand and into more interesting positions.
Probably one of the initial hurdles for the Re camera will be the $199 price point. The camera is available in a number of retail locations.

22 July 2015 42By Phil NickinsonOne thing I've gotten into a little more lately is in the same vein as the GoPro — I've been carrying the HTC RE camera around a lot more. And that begs the question that I've mostly ignored since the RE was released in the fall of 2014: Is HTC actually competing with GoPro in this space?
