The New Samsung MV800 Point-and-Shoot Camera


The Samsung MV800 is a new point-and-shoot camera with a flip-out 3-inch LCD screen, which opens up a world of creative shooting and fun by allowing you to compose pictures from numerous angles. Hold the MV800 over your head with the LCD tilted downward to compose and capture shots you would have never seen. Hold it down low with the LCD tilted upward to shoot an adorable, eye-level picture of a crawling toddler. Flip the LCD completely around and you can easily shoot perfectly posed self-portraits and impromptu shots with friends. With 16.1-megapixel resolution, a 26mm wide-angle Schneider lens with 5x optical zoom, a smartphone-like, touch-screen interface, 720p high definition video recording and both optical and digital image stabilization, the Samsung MV800 has a lot of great features that make it an ideal, everyday use camera.

The MV800 is just as much at home when used for serious pursuits as it is for when you want to fool around. Its serious side is evident in its refined, sleek styling. The Smart Auto 2.0 mode adjusts all of the camera’s settings automatically, which makes capturing serious-looking stills fast, easy and effortless. The flip-out LCD is equally as functional for work and play. It enables you to shoot professional training and demonstration videos all by yourself and you can have endless fun shooting self-portraits to share on the Web. Everything is saved on its internal 10MB of memory and on MicroSD and MicroSDHC cards.

Samsung loaded up the MV800 with additional features that increase your creativity and let you have even more fun. The Smart Filter 2.0 feature adds creative textures and effects to your photos inside the camera, without the need for post-production processing. The Cross Filter effect adds a star-like look to points of light and Half-tone Dot lends a cool looking, comic-book-like quality to your photos. Magic Frame mode enables you to superimpose portions of a picture on top of another picture, or on top of preset background templates. The Funny Face feature bends and contorts your subject’s face, transforming it into silly characters. You can even drag your finger across the touch screen to distort the image by hand. The Live Panorama feature lets you easily take sweeping panoramic pictures, so you can bring the breath-taking views from your vacation home with you.
