Flip touch display. The Samsung MV800 Multi-View is ultra compact and has a unique 3.0-in. (288k-dot) touch-screen Flip-out LCD display that rotates all the way to face forward. This makes taking self-portraits very easy. The LCD can be rotated at any angle up to 180° to make it convenient to take or view pictures. The MV800 features a 16.15MP (1/2.3-in. CCD) sensor, 5x wide-angle optical zoom (26-130mm equiv.), Optical Image Stabilization, and HD 720p Movie 1280×720 at 30fps with monaural sound.

There are lots of fun features. Live Panorama allows you to capture a wide panorama picture simply by pressing the shutter button and sweeping the scene. Magic Frame includes 12 background templates, plus the ability to customize your own. Picture-in-Picture lets you insert one image into another. Smart Filter allows you to express your creativity through 14 artistic effects, including the newly added Water Paint and Cartoon. Funny Face allows you to bend, stretch and manipulate portraits of friends to radically distort facial characteristics for hilarious effects.

There are other practical features that make it easy to capture great shots. I like the Self-shot feature: flip the screen to face forward, touch your face on the screen to activate one touch self-timer and you have 3 seconds to compose your face before the camera snaps the shot.

The 5x wide-angle optical zoom (26-130mm equiv.) is ideal for capturing sweeping landscapes, wide interior shots, large group shots as well as medium telephoto shots such portraits. Though there is no manual mode, Night Shot allows you to manually select a shutter speed from 1sec. to 16 sec. and an aperture of f/3.3 or f/9.4.

The Samsung MV800 is available in black and is priced at about US $279.99 (CAD $).
