You don&rsquo;t have to do that with the HTC RE &ndash; it&#39;s got a grip sensor that automatically turns the camera on when touched and turns it off when put down. Don&#39;t be puzzled by the absence of an on/off button - it&#39;s not meant to exist. Which also makes it more natural for you to grip and use the camera almost immediately.</p> <p>It&rsquo;s also small enough to be used with just one hand, so you can be a part of the scene you&rsquo;re capturing. Kind of makes sense, since you&#39;ll spend less time performing a balancing act with your smartphone while you grab that fleeting moment.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="HTC RE action cam" alt="HTC RE action cam" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/IMG_0050.jpg.jpg?1413514947" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> And... action camera! </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The RE has a 16MP CMOS sensor and f/2.8 ultra wide-angle lens, and can capture 1080p footage at 30fps as well as time-lapse and 720p 120fps slow motion. Too many numbers to absorb? Here&#39;s the gist - this means you might have a better chance at capturing Usain Bolt as he crosses the finishing line.</p> <p>Time-lapse? That&#39;s basically capturing hours of footage and squeezing them into mere minutes. Much like those videos of growing plants that you see, except now you&#39;re the one filming it.</p> <p>Taking a picture is as easy as just tapping a button, and if you want to take a video, you just press and hold that same button. This activates an LED light that tells you what mode you&rsquo;re on. Wouldn&#39;t it be easier to control all these options via a screen, you ask?

And then we remembered: this is an action camera. Much like GoPro&#39;s and Sony&#39;s portfolio, these cameras are meant to capture sequential shots and videos, based on your random movement rather than a well-scripted choreography.</p> <p>But still, how do you even review what you&#39;ve captured, without actually seeing it? Then, a HTC smartphone came into the picture during the demo session, along with an Android app. Oh, and HTC plays nice too with its competitors too, because there&#39;s also an iOS version of the app.</p> <p>The app is the connection between your smartphone and the RE camera, showing you the images or videos you&rsquo;ve taken via the action cam. In essence, your phone has become a viewfinder, allowing you to&nbsp;instantly see if you&rsquo;ve got the perfect shot. You can also enable the Remote Viewfinder, that will allow users to livestream footage direct to YouTube in a future update.&nbsp;</p> <p>In one hand, you&#39;ll be gripping the RE action cam, and the other would be preoccupied with the smartphone. Which is okay, considering the size and structure of the RE camera. Its buttons are strategically positioned at the front and at the back, so there will be no chance of you accidentally pushing them while you&#39;re on the smartphone.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="HTC RE action cam" alt="HTC RE action cam" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/IMG_0075.jpg.jpg?1413514947" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Waterproof </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Another of RE&#39;s merits is its rugged nature. It comes waterproof out of the box; we didn&rsquo;t really have much time with the RE action cam to see it at work, but apparently it can be safely submerged up to 1 metre for up to 30 minutes. That means you don&rsquo;t have to worry about it malfunctioning in the beach, rain, or if it falls into a sink.</p> <p>There&rsquo;s also a cap you can purchase separately that lets you take it another 3m into water for up to two hours. Presumably, that&#39;s great for shallow dives, and you can capture the aquatic world without worrying about a short circuit in the camera.</p> <p>As for reviewing the videos and photos you&#39;ve taken? Do it later when you&#39;re next to a smartphone. And trust us, finding one&nbsp;that can accompany the RE action camera on those deeper swims? Almost impossible, and you won&#39;t really need to constantly check the captures while you enjoy the view.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="HTC RE action cam" alt="HTC RE action cam" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/IMG_0072.jpg.jpg?1413514947" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-4"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Instant connection </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The brilliance of the RE camera is that it&#39;s platform agnostic, supporting both iOS and Android devices.

Try strapping a smartphone to yourself while you roam the streets and capture those crazy action shots. The user experience is somewhat of a question mark, and that&#39;s where the RE camera comes in - a standalone camera that lets you focus on the things around you, while it does its imaging job automatically.</p> <p>But on the flipside, while most smartphone makers try to bring the experience together, HTC chose to add another layer. Does it complicate things? Perhaps, but like all gadgets, conquer the learning curve, and you&#39;ll be amazed at the possibilities it brings.</p> <p>With or without a smartphone, the RE has a lot of potential, what with its dust- and waterproof features that&#39;ll protect it during action sequences. But for the initial phase, it feels like you&#39;re thrown back to the days when you act on pure blind faith, hoping that the shots you&#39;ve captured turn out fine.</p> <p>The RE is expected to hit retail shelves sometime in early November. Pricing hasn&#39;t been confirmed, but we&#39;re crossing our fingers that it&#39;ll be close to or even lower than the standard fares you&#39;re paying for a GoPro action camera.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/desire-eye/htc-desire-eye/review">HTC Desire eye hands-on preview</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="HTC RE action cam" alt="HTC RE action cam" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/IMG_0082.jpg.jpg?1413514947" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-review-rating"><legend>Review Rating</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-review-score"> <div class="field-label">Score:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 0 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-preview"> <div class="field-label">Preview:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Disabled </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-carousel-item"><legend>Carousel Extras</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-carousel-item-title"> <div class="field-label">Carousel item title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> HTC RE hands-on </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-carousel-item-standfirst"> <div class="field-label">Carousel item standfirst:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Getting all the action with HTC&#039;s new camera </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-carousel-image-small"> <div class="field-label">Carousel item small image:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_carousel_image_small" width="450" height="340" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/IMG_0071.jpg_0.jpg?1413514945" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/action-cam/htc-re-action-cam/review" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/action-cam/htc-re-action-cam/review#comments Action Cam Cameras HTC Thu, 09 Oct 2014 15:00:40 +0000 Hafizah Osman 1449729 at http://www.stuff.tv The Eyes have it: HTC's new smartphone selfie snapper packs twin 13MP cameras http://www.stuff.tv/sg/desire-eye/eyes-have-it-htcs-new-smartphone-selfie-snapper-packs-twin-13mp-cameras/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> The HTC Desire Eye is the ultimate smartphone for narcissists </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="HTC Desire Eye" alt="HTC Desire Eye" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/htc-desire-eye-01.jpg?1412850420" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Given the number of people taking selfies, it was only a matter of time before some enterprising smartphone manufacturer thought to kit out a phone with a decent front-facing camera.</p> <p>HTC is that manufacturer, and the Desire Eye is that phone. The standout feature is its twin 13MP cameras &ndash; one on the front, one on the back. Round the front, there&#39;s an f/2.2 camera with a 22mm wide-angle lens; on the back, there&#39;s an f/2.0 camera with a 28mm wide-angle lens.
