HTC Re Camera

Is the future of quick and casual photography exclusively tied to our smartphones? Maybe not, according to the designers at HTC.

The Re camera enters the very competitive field of on-the-go cameras/camcorders by offering a unique periscope-shaped design, simple one-handed operation, and the lack of a power button. Yep, the built-in capacitive touch sensors turn on the Re when you pick it up, and turn it off when you put it down. Specs-wise it has an f2.8 lens with an ultrawide 146-degree angle of view with a 1/2.3-inch 16-megapixel CMOS sensor. That’s good enough for 16 megapixel photos or video recording at 1080p or 720p at 30 frames per second. Other features include slow-motion mode (720p video at 96fps) and it’s waterproof to 1 meter (3.3 feet) for up to 30 minutes. It also wirelessly connects to iOS and Android devices so you can use their screens as a viewfinder. Look for it later this month at $199. [Purchase]
