Samsung MV800

 

The Samsung MV800 compact camera has a fun flip-out screen that makes it easy to take self portraits, but it falls short in terms of image quality and low-light performance.

Flip-out LCD. Compact and light. Responsive touch screen. Numerous shooting modes.

Soft photos. Uses microSD memory. Poor low-light performance.

Performance and Conclusions Not a particularly speedy camera, the MV800 takes about 2.3 seconds to start up and grab a shot, requires you to wait a full 1.6 seconds between photos, and records a 0.4-second shutter lag. Its performance is on par with...

Samsung MV800 Review

 

The Samsung MV800 is a 16.1 megapixel digital compact camera that uniquely features a flip-out touchscreen display which makes it easier to capture self-portraits and extreme low or high angled shots. Measuring just 18.3mm in depth, the MV800 also...

If point and shoot's your thing, then you'll be delighted with the new Samsung NV800, which offers by far the most hand-holding features that we've ever seen on a compact camera, coupled with a great touchscreen that largely succeeds in mimicking a...

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...

Samsung MV800

 

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...

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

Samsung MV800 Multiview

 

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

expensive considering its basic shooting abilities and is otherwise an attractive and well built camera. As ever, full judgement will come when we get one in for a full review.
