HTC RE 16MP Digital Camera White - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

It is a Point and Shoot type of camera that comes in a cylindrical design apt to be fitted in your hand quite comfortably. The device comes with an inbuilt grip sensor that turns the camera on when you pick it up, thus eliminating the need of the power button. When you press the mirror button, for once it gets ready to shoot the photos and if you press it longer, it turns on the video recording. HTC RE comes with a 16MP CMOS sensor that can shoot videos in Full HD and 30fps, as well as time lapse and slow motion videos. The lens provides a view of 146 degrees. The application provided by HTC for both iOS and Android smartdevices acts as a viewfinder and allows you to see as to what you are recording. You can directly upload the captured stuff onto the phone’s storage or to an internet cloud.

Design and Build Quality

HTC RE camera boasts of a design that has pet names like pipe, inhaler or a periscope. One can simply pick it up and start to shoot. Over the glossy plastic, a rubberized grip or a matte effect on the design of the body could have imparted a premium effect. There is also a microSD slot at the bottom of the device that helps to advance the storage of 8GB. This is important, for should you are inclined to take a lot of videos, you would require the expansion of storage. Also at the bottom is a microUSB slot and a tripod mount. There is no lanyard connector but one does come in a shipped bundle.

The rest of the buttons on HTC are quite smooth. The mirrored buttons work in two ways; press it and the camera will be activated to shoot photos, and press it for long for the video recording to start. All of these are indicated with LED inside the button, which seems to be quite absurd as your finger lies above the button. At the front, there is a slow motion button, which if you hold for a while will result in a beep that lets you catch slow motion videos. RE sits in the hand nicely, is portable but not exactly the shape that will fit into your front pocket.

Focus and Face Detection

Since the HTC RE camera doesn’t come with a viewfinder, it becomes difficult to shoot objects in motion. When the condition is of low light, relying too much on this camera may not deliver good results.

Lens and Image Stabilization

HTC RE camera comes with a f/2.8 (ultra wide angle) lens that can shoot Full HD video at 30fps, time-lapse and HD video at 120fps. Also, clicking photos is quite easy by just tapping a button, and should you want to capture a video, you’d have to press and hold the same button, which activates the LED to tell you that the video mode has been turned on. The lens allows for a 146 degrees view, which gives more a fish eye look to the videos, just like the other action cameras do. The lens can be set to capture stuff in narrow view as well. 

Screen and Menus

HTC RE camera is more of an action camera, for there is no rear screen for framing or viewing shots. There are though, applications for both iOS and Android platforms, so after you have linked the camera to your smart device that runs on either of these OSs, the touchscreen of the smart device becomes your viewfinder. Also, in a future update to the application, you will be able to live stream your footage directly to youtube. So, if you want a viewfinder along, you will have to hold camera in one hand and the smartphone in another. The menu system of the application consists of goodies through which, you can toggle the ultra wide-angle mode, change the camera resolution, turn off the shutter or soften its sound, and turn off the power too.

Battery

HTC RE camera has a good battery life that lasts around 1000 pictures or a 2 hours video. HTC says that the camera will be charged in two hours flat - from zero to full. Inside the bundle comes a battery extender that is screwed on to the camera and gives a boost to the battery life.

Video Mode

HTC RE camera can catch Full HD videos at 30 frames per second. When the videos are seen on screen, some absurd artefacting and fringing can be observed.

Sensors

HTC RE camera uses a Sony made 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor with 16MP resolution, which has a 146 degrees viewing ability. One can catch photos, videos, slow motion videos, and time lapse videos on it. RE does not always stay ON, but takes about a second to boot and less than a second to click photos. Taking pictures is awkward at times since you won't know what you are shooting. Although, RE is good for taking selfies, it is not good for landscapes or well-balanced shots.

Pros

  • HTC RE camera is waterproof
  • It is small, lightweight and great for single handed use
  • You can use it as a stand-alone camera
  • Thoughtful design
  • Lens is of wide-angle type
  • Ready to use ergonomics
  • Delivers decent photography

Cons

  • Extra features and settings can be found deep in application
  • Battery can’t be removed or replaced
  • Too costly
  • No flash, high-dynamic range, manual or viewfinder controls
  • iOS application offer a ‘so-so’ kind of user-experience
  • Wide-angle shots may look as if fish-eye effect has been applied

no OIS, bad capture in dark env and almost zero accessories
by Karthik G on 2015-12-28

A sports camera is useless if can't capture high speed movements in normal speed and Optical Image Stabilization. Also the pictures and videos at night are almost useless.
No wonder HTC has
