Deal: HTC RE Camera Slashed to $99 at Best Buy ($100 Off)

HTC’s RE camera, a GoPro-like action cam that is the first of many of HTC’s new product lines, is on-sale at Best Buy in a daily deal for just $99. The RE normally carries a $199 price, so we are talking about a 50% discount for today only.

As a recap, the RE is HTC’s action camera that shoots 1080p video, uses a 146-degree wide-angle lens, 16MP Sony sensor for stills with digital image stabilization, and is waterproof. It might be shaped like a periscope, but the design allows you to hold it comfortably while snapping photos at will. It doesn’t have many buttons or a viewfinder, so you have to use an Android companion app to see the photos and videos you are capturing. That’s OK, though, because it allows for quick sharing.

I don’t think anyone would consider the RE to be an award-winning product, but I can tell you that in my time with it, it has become a great party, child-chasing, and travel camera for all of those spur of the moment shots. It’s probably worth about $100.

The deal includes white, blue, and orange models.
