Motorola Camera Updated With Remote Shutter For Android Wear, Performance Improvements, And KitKat Compatibility For Some Reason

Motorola has pushed an update to its camera app in the Play Store with a few performance improvements and remote shutter for Android Wear, just like the official Google camera. The new version also includes KitKat compatibility, according to the changelog. Strange considering KitKat has been out for a year, but okay.

HTC isn't the first company you think of when you think about cameras. But they would very much like to be, and to that end, they've announced the HTC RE. As expected, this is a wireless "sports camera," along the same lines as products from GoPro, Sony, and any number would-be competitors.

Vine Version 2.5 Introduces A Number Of New Camera Tools And Video Editing Options

Vine, the video equivalent of Twitter, has received an app update that brings in a number of tools that should make getting content onto the site a better experience. The update drops a new icon at the bottom left that lets users pull up videos from their gallery (referred to annoyingly in the app as a camera roll), preview videos of any length, and trim footage down into a 6-second version that probably doesn't do the original any justice (ahem, I mean, make them Vine-ready).

Update: A curious Reddit poster tore through the promotional website and found what looks like two photos of the "ReCamera" and a mounting accessory. They seem pretty barebones, but they might be our first solid look at the device. Of course, at this point nothing is confirmed. Thanks to Jeremy (@jersteck) for the tip.

Bloomberg: HTC Is Developing A GoPro-Style Camera To Be Revealed On October 8th

If you can't beat 'em, diversify your consumer electronics portfolio until your company no longer relies exclusively on a single market. While that doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, it may indeed be HTC's new corporate strategy, if the latest report from Bloomberg is accurate.
