Samsung MV800 Review

 

Cameras these days come with virtually every feature imaginable - there are models with GPS capabilities, ones that are waterproof, shockproof, are pocket-sized, and the list never ends. Samsung believes that people who like to shoot self portraits...

The Samsung MV800 is available in India at a MOP of Rs.14,000. This camera is a really interesting camera when it comes to its design and features. There are not many cameras in the market, which have an interface, such as this with its responsive...

Samsung MV800 Review

 

Samsung continues to create some extremely fun to use cameras, and the MV800 is no exception. This stylish camera is loaded with fun to use settings, and the hinged LCD is sure to be a hit among the social crowds. We did find a few shortfalls with the...

Very weak flash ; Flash recharge time is up to 8 seconds ; While the flash is recharging, the camera is non-responsive ; AE issues in lower lighting conditions ; Rear shutter release can be hard to operate with one hand ; Uses microSD/SDHC cards, which...

Samsung MV800Digital Camera Review

 

The Samsung MV800 MultiView is an updated take on the company's DualView line. Rather than two LCDs—one on the back, one on the front—the MV800 has a single hinged display that can flip 180 degrees upward. Need a self portrait? Flip up the screen and...

As a tool for photography, the MV800 has almost no specs or features that stick out to us, the camera nerds that work for this website. Image quality is average at best—actually, it's pretty crummy in anything but bright lighting. Shot-to-shot times...

Mini-Review: Samsung MV800 Digital Camera

 

Should we rely on our high powered smartphone for those important holiday snaps, or is there still a place for the latest good quality point and shoot cameras in our suitcase or pocket? Enter the Samsung MV800 with flip out touch screen and 16MP sensor...

Almost every day we see news of the next, great smartphone and more often than not one of the main selling points used by manufacturers is the camera functionality with recent models offering 12 and 18 megapixel parts. Everyone should know though that...

Samsung MV800 MultiView Digital Camera

 

You've probably been there before - out with a couple friends and you want to grab a quick picture together for the scrapbook but all you have is a handheld camera and nobody around to press the shutter for you. You can do the whole arm-out-in-the-air...

Samsung MV800 Review: For The Narcissist In All Of Us

 

While the idea of a flip-out screen for self-portraits is just a tad gimmicky, the MV800 is one sweet little point-and-shoot. Whether you're straight-up obsessed with yourself, or a narcissist is hidden deep within, this thing just begs you to take...

Too many fun software features to count ; Compact (and beautiful) design: should fit comfortably in any pocket ; Straight-forward interface: easy enough for a grandma to understand

Touchscreen wasn’t as responsive as I’d have liked — flipping through pictures was a bit tedious ; No microphone input, despite 720p video capture capability ; Samsung may have overdone it on some funky features — Pose Guide, I’m talking to you

The Samsung MV800 isn’t a serious camera, but that’s fine. If you (or someone you know) is looking to have fun the MV800 is an excellent sub-$300 option. It’s cute, small, has more than enough features to keep you totally occupied, and it’ll probably...

An articulating LCD, smartphone-like interface and average images at a pretty steep price

Strong resolution test results; Great interface design

Spotty noise performance; Noise reduction wrecks low-light photos

As a tool for photography, the MV800 has almost no specs or features that stick out to us, the camera nerds that work for this website. Image quality is average at best—actually, it’s pretty crummy in anything but bright lighting. Shot-to-shot times...
