HTC Debuts GoPro-Style RE Camera
HTC Wednesday unveiled the RE Camera, its attempt at a competitor to GoPro's cameras.
The RE is described by the company as "a remarkable little camera." According to HTC:
Featuring a high-resolution, 16MP CMOS sensor, full HD (1080p) video recording, 146 degree wide-angle lens and slow-motion and time-lapse recording, RE will capture moments like you have never seen before. The RE app features a remote live viewfinder that lets you set up the perfect shot and watch the live action on the screen of your mobile device, or switch to album and playback view to flick through the shots and videos already stored on the camera. Because life's adventures are limitless, the app will also back everything up to your phone or the cloud automatically so you never need to worry about running out of space and missing a shot again. In addition, in the future, RE will offer real-time video streaming to YouTube, allowing you to live in the moment and share it live via your YouTube channel. The RE app will be available on both Android and iOS.
The RE camera was introduced along with the new HTC Desire EYE phone, the HTC EYE Experience enhanced imaging software; and Zoe, described as a collaborative video editing community.
