    Amazing and versatile little camera

    Posted .

    I really like this little very portable camera and carry it everywhere I go. In fact, I now find myself using it more often than any other camera I own or even my smart phone. The HTC Re app on Android is a bit slow to connect initially, but once you've connected the Re camera to your phone, you can use your phone as a viewfinder and remote control. There are some cons to this device, but that shouldn't stop you from considering purchasing it. They are: a so so battery life, especially when recording video, poor low light photos and the lack of optical image stabilization. I wish it could record 1080p at 60fps, but the video the Re captures is great regardless. The pros of the Re camera are numerous and outshine the cons outlined above. The positive aspects are numerous: extreme portability, awesome fisheye lens photos (I only take pictures with the fish eye lens turned on), waterproof, slow motion and time lapse videos.

    Great pocket camera

    I bought this before going on a cruise I wanted something small that I could just snap picture and go through them later. This turned out to be the perfect camera for it! We did several water activities and was able to stick it in my life jacket and snap pictures as we went! It was awesome!

    Great camera for the price and beginner

    Nice quality pictures and video especially water pics. Can't beat the price. Nice size for hand. Only wish it had a separate power button. Surprised that no view finder is not an issue. Great for beginners.

    Great flexible camera

    |
    Posted .

    Similar to a Go camera but more flexible as I carry it in my pocket to use wherever I go. Use with and without the download app (free) that allows me to see what I am shooting. Connecting to my computer allows me to select photos to save, delete and use, especially for online sharing. I find using this camera better than trying to use the camera on my iPhone and the photo quality is great. I have posted many photos online after downloading them to my computer. It suits my needs and I am still exploring possibilities for other uses. The flat base allows me to take selfies from a distance using the smart phone app as I align the photo and put the camera on a stable surface or stand. I am really glad I made this purchase at a reasonable price. The video feature is short but good quality. I attached two sample photos I have taken at a store and one of my Halloween props.

    Great Camera for Water

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this camera to vlog on our honeymoon. It is incredible! You will either have to download the app to your smartphone or connect it to the computer. The app is really simple to use. I was able to take it in the air during parasailing because of the wristlet and the fact that its waterproof. We were so happy the quality, and that we were able to film that event.

    Love it, and you should too

    Posted .

    Got this last year around Black Friday for $100. Love it. Super handy, always at the ready and takes really good pictures and video. The sound pick up is always really clear as well. The real problem is because it's always "on", I press the bottom sometimes while it's in my pocket and it's taking video and gets real hot. The software isn't perfect but a lot better than when it first came out. I've used it for skiing while it was snowing heavily with no worries and dunked in streams without ever a problem. The angle of view is so wide you don't have to worry if you're aiming properly, and if the photo isn't perfect, the photo is large (16mp) you can always edit the photo later. Highly recommended.

    It's great for taking pictures..

    |
    Posted .

    First off, it fits in the hand well. The shape is very ergonomic. This camera will go into men's pockets or women's purses with ease, really a great design. There is no on/off switch. There's a grip sensor that turns the camera on immediately when you grab it, which is nice! As far as picture and video quality.. It takes very sharp, wide angle pictures for a camera its size. My only complaint is there seems to be a lag between pressing the shutter button before it actually takes the picture. So you have to be very still for about a second after clicking the button. The video quality isn't that great, I'd definitely stick with my iPhone for videos.

    Fun cam!

    Posted .

    I'll need to start of wit this is NOT a GoPro challenger. Sure it's very portable, mountable, wearable and has a wide field of view but it's not meant to compete with GoPros and the like. I am a videographer with 2 newer Prosumer cams and many older ones. I have been an early adopter of mini palm cameras since my first FVD-C1 that I paid an outrageous $600 (on sale LOL) back in 2005. I quickly moved up to the Xacti HD1. Same configuration but HD video and better zoom. I would still be using that camera if it wasn't for the sand that got into the lens. In 2010 my videography hobby turned more serious when I purchased the JVC GR-HD1U along with 3 other HDV cams the following years. All this leading up to my twin Canon HF-G10s which are perfect for recoding live music events and some studio work as well. I have always liked throwing in a small cam to get the one angle you can't with a standard size cam (even if true Prosumer G10 is 3 times smaller then my retired GR-HD1U. I borrowed a Hero 2 a few years ago to suction cup mount to the plexiglass sound shield right in front of the drummer but was not happy with the fisheye lens look. Nowadays they do a much better job at correcting the curved look and so does the HTC RE. Although I plan to utilize this in some videos my main yes will be for personal fun. It has good low light recording and really enjoy not having a bulky LCD to deal with. Image walked up to people with my arm raised at chest level and not until I point out test in recording do trey take a closer look and realize it's a lens staring at them. Being able to sync it to your phone as a monitor is a plus but the whole point is not to worry about the image and just shoot the moment. This is something I quickly have adopted with this camera and for the most part my videos have come out decent for what they are. That being they are spontaneous recordings of personal events. Much like my niece taking it down a snowy hill on a inner-tube at the Gaylord Palms Ice event in Christmas Day (near Orlando). I also synced it to my phone while she had it and was able to see what she was filming (until she got out of range which wasn't far about 20 feet). We had a great time with it test night and can't wait till I take it on some action shoots like my sail plane ride. One of the great things about it is that has a standard camera mount on the bottom, so any tripod or standard camera suction cup mount will work with it. They are advertising accessories and mounts but for some reason they are out of stock everywhere (either poor planning or or very popular?). I would highly recommend it to anyone especially when you can try and buy from places like Best Buy That don't charge you a restocking fee. The only causes are that it does not come with a lens cap which is bad way just a listing in your pockets. The only other lacking feature that I would want is a LED flash like the phone cameras that could also be used as a torch for video. I know battery life was an issue on such a tiny device and that would surely quickly drain the time to record which is already at an hour and a half but that is more than enough time between shots and I've always been accustomed to charge my devices constantly. I have also seen an external extended battery that is the same diameter as the RE and screws into the bottom, basically extending the grip of the RE. When I can find that in stock somewhere that will definitely be my second purchase, after the lens cap. I hope this review helps and didn't bore you too much with my background on my cameras. I just felt it was pertinent to The bases on my view and therefore this review.

    Great Little Camera

    |
    Posted .

    This little camera is fantastic. It's an action camera that is ready for you whenever you pick it up. That's right, it's ready to go without an on/off switch to press. It has a sensor inside the periscope shaped body that knows when you are holding it and turns on automatically into a standby mode waiting for your commands. Press the button on the back in just the right spot for your thumb and it springs to life. A quick press will take a photo and a longer press will activate the video. There isn't a viewfinder so you have to wait until you check either through the phone app or downloaded to your computer how the pictures and videos turned out. This isn't so much of an issue because with the wide angle lens, whatever you're trying to capture will most likely end up in the shot. The beauty of this is that you don't spend your time focused on the camera and can pay attention to what's going on around you in the real world. When you DO check out what you've captured, you might be pleasantly surprised. This thing takes some really nice video. Very high detail and on a laptop it looks like I'm back wherever it was I took the shot. Same with photos. Really nice. I took off a star because the battery doesn't last very long before needing a recharge and sometimes, getting it to connect with the phone app which it does through your WIFI settings can be clunky and take a few tries. Maybe a software path in the future can smooth this out. It seems to be priced a little high but I'm sure it will settle into a range it's supposed to be in. I'll assume it's because this is a new type of camera and will have to find its market segment. I hope it stays around because it really does come in handy.

    Most underrated mobile camera accessory

    |
    Posted .

    I purchased this, as an open box item, for just under 100 dollars, based on a review from Phandroid.com (written by Chris Chavez). Chris was 100% accurate in his assessment of this accessory as an absolute must have, especially at a sale price. I am not a big camera expert and don't own a DSLR, but this device makes me enjoy taking pics. And, forget about the need for a selfie stick, cuz your arms are too short to get a lot of people in the pic. This thing, with the extra wide angle option, is such a great accessory, especially for people like myself, who are novice photographers. It doesn't have flash, so using at nightime isn't much of an option, but in any situation with good lighting...I highly recommend this. And, it is supposed to work with iOS and Android.

    A Fun Camera on the High Side

    |
    Posted .

    I like the camera- great ergonomics, and it takes good pictures and video. My only thing is that I have to keep referring back to the guide to see what the lights mean on the front and back. I found myself accidentally taking photos or shooting video when I was just trying to look the thing over. I think the list price is too high though. I think it would be more attractive at a $129 list $99 sale, but I guess HTC knows what it needs to make for these to turn a profit. I just thought it was a little pricey for what is essentially a fun toy.

    Must buy

    Posted .

    I typical read a lot of reviews, but I do not write at all, however this product is great and I wanted to review. I was looking for a small action camera for when we went on vacation that was inexpensive and simple to operate. This product is just that not fancy but simple to use an affordable. While we were on vacation I received so much attention from others wanting to know what I was using, it's so small and lite that's it is not intrusive an you can slip into pocket or wristlets. I didn't want the go pro to complicated for me. The RE is water proof and takes great still or video the audio is decent also. I actually crack mine while on vacation since I screwed into the tripod, since I had the insurance best buy replaced with no issues. I love this so much I will be buying for my brother and family for x mas to use at sporting events. It's great for kids or anyone looking for action camera.

    Easy to use, quick to snap a picture, and portable

    |
    Posted .

    I really enjoy using the HTC Re camera. I admit it does have some down sides, but for the simplicity, ease of taking a picture and portability it is hard not like. My kids love using it to simply point and shoot. It is easy to hold, not awkward at all. I think the picture quality is quite good.I haven't used the video feature much yet, no no issues there either. I have not tried in low lighting environments. I like the time lapse feature and found a rather interesting use for it, by taking animated videos. My next fun project with the kids. The down side to the HTC Re is the lack of a view finder and the need to change camera settings through your smart phone. I have an AT&T LG G2 and have no problems connecting the Re. I am fine with the lack of view finder, since its purpose is to quickly take a picture (spur of the moment). The live streaming to you tube is cool, I haven't tried it, but I can see a use for it for live bloggers and similar social media events to share with friends or family. I got this on sale for $100, and would definitely recommend a purchase at that price point. If you can benefit from all the features it provides, then spending $200 is worth it.

    Awesome Simple Camera

    Posted .

    This is a GREAT camera, I love what we are able to do with it and how simple it is to use. We took it in the woods on some Geocaching and the video's came out great of the family even under the shady trees, it's so simple to hold and record in the hand I'm sure it will be even easier when i get the clip attachment. Any regular tripod or camera mount will work, we took it to a shooting rang and set it up with the wide angle view and the shots came out great, the slow motion video's came out awesome and crystal clear. Using the phone App is great both being able to so see what you have taking and the remote control features. The remote control feature works GREAT, you are able to change from wide angle to normal view with ease and when your on video a simple touch of the slow motion icon and it's on or off, I Love the app. There is a slight learning curve for when you press the shutter button and when it takes the photo it's half a second behind i guess due to no on or off button but it's no big deal, at first photo's where coming our blurry but and a few minutes you'll get especially if your using the App on your phone. The whole weekend my brother had his Gopro also he has tons of attachments but this RE is so simple to use and holding it is the best part it fits in your hand like it should be there it was just as good as the more expensive Gopro but easier you use. This camera is great for a family you can take it anywhere it's so small and easy to use the kids love using it and the photos and video's came out great. I am one of those people that don't like whipping out my 5 inch cell phone to take family photos and video's all the time so this camera will get heavy use with us. We Love It!

    I bought it just because of the need for an action camera and found this so designed to be easy to carry, but after I tried I became surprised by the quality of films and photos, a lot better that expected, now I need accessories to put in the car and bought a generic because there was none at the store

    HTC Re!

    Posted .

    So far so good...I gave it a 3 star because the low light could be better compared to what's out there. Other items that I would also like to see...being able to switch to slow motion a little quicker because thus far, slow mo has been the best feature. Lastly, I have a Note 4 and it would be really nice if Zoe worked with it. Quick and easy to take photos, with good light picture quality is excellent. Hooking it up to an android phone was simple and thank you for keeping the settings/options nice and simple.

    In one word, AWESOME!!

    I actually picked up one on black Friday for $99 and once I realized how great it was I picked up two more for each of my daughters for Christmas. Yes some phones have great cameras and obviously ois would have made the RE perfect. For $200 it's a reach but if you can find one for $150 or less grab it. It is so easy to set up and even easier to use. I filmed our entire Christmas morning and no one knew until I played the video on our TV later that night. The pictures are top notch and the videos are even better. It is so easy and convenient to use. Yes people stare when they see you using it but once you show them the pics/videos they ask where they can buy one. If you have children or just enjoy taking quick photos on the fly I highly recommend the RE.

    Fit My Needs

    Posted .

    I bought this to use while riding my motorcycle. I didn't want a Go Pro that I needed to mount on my bike or helmet and a normal digital camera is to difficult to use with my left hand while riding. The Re camera was easy to put on a lanyard around my neck so that I could pull it out of my pocket and take a pic or video as I was riding. Unlike a Go Pro I could easily point it at whatever I wanted, including behind me. The downside of this camera is that it is difficult to tell if you're taking a photo or video. The light is so tiny I couldn't see it out in the sunlight. I got some nice pics and videos but I also got a ton of messed up ones, including long videos inside of my pocket. I think practice will help and I am glad I purchased this little camera!
