With a flip-out touchscreen and a variety of fun and creative features, the 16.15-million-pixel Samsung MV800 handles a little differently to other compact cameras. Richard Sibley puts it to the test
Clearly designed to be fun to use, the Samsung MV800 will appeal to those more used to a mobile phone. However, while the image quality is on a par with other similar cameras, the reliance on touchscreen controls will frustrate photographers more used to the handling of a DSLR.
That said, the articulated screen and secondary shutter button are great features that I hope to see on other cameras in the future. I just wish the MV800 had a control dial.
At ISO 800 the image quality of the MV800 is OK, however at the lowest ISO 80 sensitivity a lot of detail is resolved.
