IFA 2011 – Samsung unveils MV800 MultiView camera with flip-up screen

Samsung mv800

Along with its new mobile phone and tablet offerings, Samsung has just unveiled the new MV800 Multiview camera at IFA 2011 in Berlin.

The MV800 has been designed to capture the perfect image. I know what you’re thinking, EVERY camera wants you to capture the perfect image, right?

But, the MV800 is tailored to make sure you get shots from all kinds of angles with its unique 3 inch flip out display, a good quality image with 16.1 megapixels, detailed close ups with its 5x optical zoom and wide angle shots with its 26mm lens.

Its USP is the flip-out screen, which is apparently a first for a compact camera, but there are plenty of other features to shout about including advanced touchscreen in the screen and a range of panorama settings.

Samsung also seems to be ticking all of the boxes when it comes to photo editing, with a funny face setting (which doesn’t really seem necessary), as well as a range of filters and a comprehensive photo editor.

There’s also interestingly a Beauty Shot feature which promises to blur out imperfections on your face, which I’m pretty undecided about at the moment…

There’s no official word about when the MV800 will be available, but Tech Radar has guessed it’ll be around mid-September at retail at around £249.

  • It looks great, I’ve just clicked on your link as I wasn’t sure what the function of the flip was and all has been explained. I love that you can take a picture of yourself and see it on the screen and take low shots, very good idea, I’ll stick it on my Christmas list for sure.
