Best Buy is offering HTC’s RE camera accessory for $99.99, down from its normal list price of $200. The $99.99 price point is the lowest we’ve seen since during a Black Friday deal when supply was very constrained. For those unfamiliar, the RE camera is a GoPro-like device that records point of view video, but does not have any sort of viewfinder.

The RE camera, which starkly resembles an inhaler, features a 16MP camera sensor and support for 1080p video.  The RE has just two buttons, which HTC says makes it very easy to use. One of the buttons allows you to tap and instantly capture 16MP photos or long press to record 1080p video. The other button allows you to take slow motion video in HD quality. HTC touts that the 146 degree wide-angle lens ensures that you capture everything, despite the lack of a viewfinder.

The RE camera is available via Best Buy with free shipping now for $100 in white, blue, and orange color variants. The device was officially announced last October.
