New Periscope Camera by HTC For Mobile Photography – iOS and Android Platforms

HTC have launched the RE Camera, it’s a16MP ‘GoPro competitor’ and it records 1080p video and time-lapses. It can also record HD slow-motion video at 1/4 speed.

The device includes a 146-degree wide-angle lens and image stabilisation software, and is built with a waterproof design. The RE app works with both Android and iOS devices, where your photos and videos will be automatically viewable.  You can also use your device as a viewfinder, as the RE doesn’t have a screen of its own.

The camera comes in white, teal, orange and navy blue and will be available for $199 at recamera.com starting November in the US.

The RE will also be available from £169.99 in the UK and is compatible with Android smartphones (Android 4.5 and above) and iPhones (iOS 7 or later). The RE is available in white and navy models, and also in orange exclusively with EE. Customers can connect the RE by HTC to a smartphone on 4GEE via device to device Wi-Fi in order to share images and videos on the move over the UK’s biggest and fastest mobile network.

Sharon Meadows, Director of Devices and Added Value Products at EE, said: “People are sharing content more than ever from their mobile devices, and sharing high definition video and images demands the biggest and fastest mobile network. The combination of a powerful connected camera like the stunning RE by HTC and our superfast 4GEE network means that customers will be able to share their experiences in new and exciting ways.”

Peter Frolund, VP of UK and Nordics for HTC, said: “The RE by HTC is uniquely designed to be easy and fun to use whilst capturing your photos and HD quality video on the move and makes it even easier to share your experiences with family and friends, when paired with any smartphone on EE’s superfast 4G network”
