Samsung MV800

The Samsung MV800 is now a known camera to all as you might have seen images of this camera on television and in magazines. The first thing anyone will notice about the MV800 camera is the LCD panel fanning out in various angles, as if opening up a page in the book. It allows you new viewing angles, though it achieves half the 360 degrees movement of the display in more advanced cameras.

The second thing you will notice about the Samsung MV800 is its slim size. Sideways it is less than an average finger width with the LCD closed down and therefore could deceive you into thinking it is a Smartphone. These features make the MV800 a device of which you would like to own. The 16.1 MP camera with an entire 3 inch capacitive touchscreen flipping from rear to 180° angle makes it possible to not only shoot perfectly framed self-portraits, but also to have a direct view of the display when shooting both below and above eye level.

Unlike most other cameras, the various options in Samsung MV800 are accesses on a smartphone-like “homepage”. Placed like widgets on the monitor, you can touch these icons to get to the modes (smart auto, smart movie, 3D photo, scene mode, beauty shot, etc) as you would on a phone. It’s amazing how such a tiny device is capable of so much, including 3D photographs and “live” panorama shots (essentially video panoramas that alos double up as stills). The results are good, though some functions of the camera may seem a little fussy.
