Samsung MV800

 

Is the Samsung MV800 the ideal party snapper?

Flip-screen is ideal for self/group portraits, Smartphone-like controls easy to master, Lots of easy-to-use creative tools and effects

No built-in social networking integration, Flip-screen doesn't swivel, Much better value at £150 than £200

First Look: Samsung's latest camera is flippin' amazing… Well, it flips anyway.

Samsung MV800

 

The MV800 updates Samsung's dual screen PL and ST-series compact cameras. However, the MV, which stands for “Multi View”, opts for a single screen that's now mounted on a flip bracket for forward-facing self-portrait framing. The question is, will the...

Flip screen for self-portraits, responsive touchscreen, build quality

Poor display quality, so-so image quality, expensive, unconventional control array

Samsung’s MV800 is a quirky and well-built compact camera. Although the flip out screen may be a little gimmicky, as it’s not something that you’ll be using all the time, its screen resolution makes it a pleasure to use as a ‘normal’ compact too. The...

Samsung MV800 review

 

Tilting touchscreen and 16MP on a compact camera

Flip-out screen ; Fun art filters ; Sleek

Poor quality screen ; Touchscreen sometimes unresponsive

The key feature of the Samsung MV800 is of course its tilting screen, which makes it one of the only compact cameras to feature an adjustable screen, especially at this price point. While other screens articulate round to the side of a camera, the...

Samsung MV800 review

 

The Samsung MV800 is a 16Mp compact that can also capture 720p video at 30fps.

Samsung has made video and photography across a range of modes extremely easy. Lack of Wi-Fi and an awkward self-portrait shutter release notwithstanding, this is well-executed point and shoot.

Image and video quality are nothing special, but a clever design and lots of fun shooting modes make it an attractive camera for social media addicts

Samsung NX200, WB750 and MV800 Preview

 

The past week or so has seen all the big-name camera manufacturers jockeying for position in the holiday camera-sales sweepstakes, and Samsung is the latest company to get in the game.

The Samsung NX200 is a new compact interchangeable-lens model, the WB750 offers an 18X zoom lens, and the slim MV800 has a unique adjustable touchscreen.

Samsung MV800 review

 

Clearly designed to be fun to use, the Samsung MV800 will appeal to those more used to a mobile phone. However, while the image quality is on a par with other similar cameras, the reliance on touchscreen controls will frustrate photographers more used...

Flip the Screen : Samsung MV800

 

Capturing a photo from behind you is just one of the features with this Samsung digital camera.

Available in a choice of black, red or white, the Samsung MV800 is a compact camera that combines 16.1MP capability with a flip-out screen to help capture shots at unusual angles or self portraits. This flip-out feature does add a little to the depth...
