    Push the button again to stop it.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:32:01 PM
    The only other button is a small front button that allows for slow-mo video, slowing HD video.

    The Re is waterproof.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:32:45 PM
    There's no viewfinder. There's a custom wide-angle lens and stabilization software to make sure videos look great and you capture everything.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:32:53 PM
    Re comes waterproof out of the box.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:32:58 PM
    "Yeah boy," he says.

    While its primary use isn't action oriented, it will support all of the accessory mounts available in the market today.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:33:37 PM
    Because HTC is a mobile company, Re was designed to be mobile, he says. There's no PC required for this.
  • Dan Graziano 10/8/2014 8:33:39 PM
    The Re Camera can take 16-megapixel photos and 1080p video. For some comparison, the entry-level GoPro Hero has a 5-megapixel sensor and can also shoot 1080p video.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:33:50 PM
    HTC built an app that not only works for HTC phone, but Android and iPhones too.
  • sarahtew 10/8/2014 8:33:59 PM
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:34:06 PM
    All you need to do is download the Re app and all the videos, images appear on the phone, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:34:14 PM
    He said magically, but I omitted that bit.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:34:32 PM
    You can use your phone as the viewfinder in real time by accessing the app, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:34:53 PM
    You can also take time-lapse video, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:35:32 PM
    Time-lapse videos can be set up on the phone. Once the time-lapse is done, the entire lapse is synched to the phone and ready to be shared. No editing required, no cables, no PC. Simple, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:35:52 PM
    Re gives you the option to back up the photos and videos through your phone or the device itself, he says.

  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:36:07 PM
    HTC will push upgrades to Re so the camera, app, and experience will improve over time, he says.

  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:36:20 PM
    HTC will offer an SDK to allow partners to take advantage of the camera, he says.

  • sarahtew 10/8/2014 8:36:52 PM
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:37:06 PM
    HTC will do it through a partnership with YouTube, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:37:08 PM
    Re will be widely available globally, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:37:17 PM
    In the coming months, HTC will offer real-time broadcasting functionality, he says. You can broadcast yourself and whatever you're looking at live so family members can experience that, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:37:24 PM
    Re will be available in four colors: white, teal, orange, and navy blue.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:37:38 PM
    Re will be available for purchase through, a new HTC site.
  • sarahtew 10/8/2014 8:37:46 PM
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:37:51 PM
    Re camera will be available on
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:38:06 PM
    Best Buy, Amazon, AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile will carry the Re.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:38:13 PM
    It'll be available in time for the holidays...I guess no specific date.
  • sarahtew 10/8/2014 8:38:18 PM
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:38:28 PM
    Re means "reimagined" as in changing up the camera.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:38:39 PM
    Interestingly, he didn't mention the price.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:38:55 PM
    Ok, now for more models -- this time male -- walking with the Re.
  • sarahtew 10/8/2014 8:39:29 PM
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:39:29 PM
    So the Re is another project birthed out of HTC's Creative Labs unit. As with the Zoe app, the Re is open to more users, and not just HTC customers.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:39:44 PM
    A look at the Re shows the HTC logo, but it's very subtle.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:40:32 PM
    From Scott Stein: The people on stage look like they belong in "Back to the Future 2's" future timeline.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:40:41 PM
    These people are way too hip for me.
