HTC Re Camera
A cross between a periscope and an asthma inhaler, it’s easy to quickly write off HTC’s Re action cam. But closer consideration highlights Re’s merits: to start, it’s easier to hold, turns on instantly upon detecting your grip, and boasts a single trigger-position button that lets you tap to snap 16 megapixel photos or hold for 1080p video at 30fps through its ultra-wide angle lens. While it’s lacking a viewfinder, everything shot streams directly — and instantly — to your phone for viewing or sharing. And like any good action camera it’s also waterproof to IPX7 standards (1 meter deep for 30 minutes), or IPX8 (continual submersion) with the included cap.
