The Samsung MV800 MultiView camera comes with a 3 inch wide touch screen display that can be flipped out as need for the perfect shot from all angles. With a normal digital camera it can get a bit tricky to get those low angle shots, high angle shots and self shots. There are cameras that come with dual LCD screen, one in the front for self portrait shots but the back LCD is fixed and you still have to do all the moving around for low/ high angle shots.

I have a professional DSLR camera with the flip out LCD screen (though not 180°) but this is the first time Samsung has implemented it into a point and shoot camera. The Samsung MV800 MultiView camera’s LCD screen can be flipped out at 30°, 90°, 120° and 180°.

  • Flip the Samsung MV800 camera’s LCD screen at 30° which turns out to be a perfect stand for viewing photos.
  • Flip the LCD screen at 90° for shooting low angle shots without having to bend or crawl.
  • The MV800 LCD screen at 120° is perfect for capturing images at high angle for example over a crowd.
  • And the LCD screen at 180° is like having the LCD screen in the front for self shot.

Picture in Picture is an amazing feature that has been added. With this feature you can combine two pictures. To give you an idea you can combine an image of audience in smaller format within the main image. This way you get to tell both side of the story. Another example: A picture of new born baby and a smaller size image over the picture the reaction of new parents.
