The HTC RE is certainly an odd-looking camera – in fact, all of the Best Buy employees who helped me pick up the camera earlier this week commented on how strange they all thought it looked! None of them had seen it before, and apparently I was the first customer to show any interest in the camera.
While that doesn’t necessarily bode well for the camera’s long-term success, I’ve actually been having a lot of fun with it and enjoy using it quite a bit. That’s all going to come later, though, as today I just want to give you a quick, simple, photo unboxing. The packaging is, after all, just as unique as the camera itself.
To open the package, you have to grip the bottom and twist the top counter-clockwise. If all goes well, it should pop right off!
The RE camera sits in a plastic base, which you’ll also have to twist to remove.
Inside the bottom of the package is a carrying cord, a microUSB cable for charging, and the warranty information and instruction books.
Here’s the camera, it all it’s glory!
You’ll notice the base on the bottom. To keep the camera waterproof, you’ll want that screwed in. To access the charging port and the 8GB included micro SD card, you’ll need to remove it.
Over the next few days, I’ll play around with this thing extensively and post my results. Got questions for me? Leave them below!
