If you’re looking to get a new action camera on the cheap, Best Buy’s got a deal for you.

The HTC RE camera is now on sale at Best Buy for $99.99, which is $100 off of its standard price. In exchange for your single Benjamin, you’ll get a 16-megapixel camera with a wide-angle lens, face detection, digital image stabilization, waterproof body, and an 8GB microSD card.

The RE camera is compatible with devices running Android 4.3 or higher, and HTC’s got an app that’ll let you do things like livestream to YouTube and use your phone as a remote viewfinder and shutter control.

When we first took a look at the HTC RE camera, we found it to be a nice option for quick captures of concerts, family events, and more, but its $200 price tag made it more expensive than the entry-level camera from GoPro, a well-known action camera maker. At $99.99, though, the HTC RE camera is much more compelling as a way to capture quick photos and let you live events through your eyes rather than through the viewfinder of a camera.
