Samsung MultiView camera offers great photography from all angles

Samsung Electronics, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies unveils the Samsung MultiView MV800, with a 3” Wide Flip-out Display. With this launch the company is pioneering a unique new “MultiView” category to enable today’s increasingly ambitious camera user to frame the perfect shot from any angle.

The ultra slim and stylish device boasts enhanced picture quality, touch screen technology, as well as many innovative and user-friendly features to ensure that all users can relax and enjoy their shooting experience, confident of capturing even the most challenging images.

The Samsung MultiView MV800 builds on the success of Samsung 2View technology and is the first premium compact model to feature a 3” Wide Flip-out MultiView Touch Display. Samsung has designed the device with the user in mind, in response to evolving consumer demands in the segment for maximum flexibility, enjoyment and creativity.

The 3” Wide Flip-out Display opens up a world of artistic possibilities, whether it is capturing the perfect self-portrait to polish your online profile, or extreme low and high angled shots to demonstrate your photographic prowess. The unique screen tilts up and down so you can frame every shot, and easily view back your images from any perspective.

For style-conscious consumers on the lookout for sophisticated, minimalist styling, the device’s ultra- slender design and contemporary metallic finish promises to make a visual impact.

The Samsung MultiView MV800 camera offers an impressive 16.1 megapixels for premium picture quality, along with a 5x optical zoom lens to capture every detail in close-up and 26mm wide-angle lens for capturing larger gatherings in high definition. By packing this technology into a sleek and slim device, the Samsung MultiView MV800 is the ideal camera for premium-quality image capture on the move.

The innovative Live Panorama function, meanwhile, enables the easy photography of large groups by simply holding down the shutter button, then previewing the whole scene that’s been captured, via the LCD. Moreover, by simply connecting the Samsung MultiView MV800 to a 3D HDTV, images and panoramic shots can be viewed in outstanding 3D in-depth quality instantly.

And whilst the Flip-out Display means you can take shots from all angles without having to contort yourself, the unique Smart Touch 3.0 with Wallpaper user interface ensures highly intuitive operation to save your fingers the effort, allowing you to drag and scroll through menu options to launch the required feature with only one touch. Smart Touch 3.0 also keeps it fun by letting users customise their background image or wallpaper.

Tommy Dillon, National Sales Manager Digital Imaging, Samsung Ireland, comments: “Our aim is to continually be at the forefront of digital compact camera innovation and the breakthrough MultiView proposition offered by the Samsung MultiView MV800 is the embodiment of that goal. The camera’s unique ability to capture images from any angle, with its stylish and ultra-slim design demonstrates unparalleled Samsung innovation which we believe will appeal to every photographer, and establish a new benchmark for the industry.”

Get creative with Magic Frame and Picture-in-Picture shot
The Samsung MultiView MV800 has been designed as more than just a camera - it is a creative tool for users to extract maximum enjoyment from all photographic opportunities. The Magic Frame feature includes 12 fun background templates, as well as the ability for users to customise their own. The camera’s Picture-in-Picture function, meanwhile, lets you insert one image with another, you can even use the Flip-out display to snap a self-portrait and put yourself in the picture!

Maximise enjoyment with Smart Filter and Funny Face features
Smart Filter allows users to express their own creativity, through a menu of 14 artistic effects, including the newly added Water Paint for a stylish watercolour finish or the Cartoon capability, transforming any photo into a fun animated film format. The fun doesn’t stop there - Funny Face allows you to bend, stretch and manipulate portraits of loved ones by tapping and dragging to radically distort facial characteristics, ready to share and enjoy.

Capture the perfect portrait with ease
The built in Pose Guide function advises users how to best get into position with line drawings on the LCD screen, so you can capture the optimum image from any angle. The device also provides the perfect picture in real time, with the easy-to-navigate Photo Editor function, allowing you to edit and rotate the image on the move. Loved ones and friends will also appreciate the Beauty Shot feature, enabling you to edit out any imperfections, resulting in a flawless photo.

Create your own story
The Samsung MultiView MV800 allows you to become the creative director of your own life, with innovative Storyboard Maker. Users can prepare a storyboard from the images they’ve shot by simply selecting the layout, and then placing the photos in order. Whether you’re creating a movie of a night out with friends or fantastic family holiday, see it laid out on the display as clearly as you do in your head.

Creative intelligence at your fingertips
To ensure you capture the best image possible to enjoy, share and impress, simply snap a wide-angle shot of a friend and the Samsung MultiView MV800 will automatically search out and capture two other strong images at different zoom ratios, giving you three great photos with one click. You of course get the last word on which of the three to select – or simply keep them all.

HD movie capability in the palm of your hands
The Samsung MultiView MV800 also boasts HD recording capabilities, within a compact body that will fit into the palm of your hand. Enjoy consistently clear and crisp video with technology that allows you to capture special memories with a recording time of up to twice as long as standard MPEG4. The innovative zoom noise reduction technology, meanwhile, ensures that the only sound recorded will be the laughter and conversation of loved ones, not the whirring of the zoom.

The Samsung MultiView MV800’s combination of industry-leading innovation, sophisticated design and the ultimate in user-friendly features, ensure total mobility, premium picture quality and maximum enjoyment. The Samsung MultiView is the perfect tool to not just capture an image but to tell a fun and creative story on the move.

The Samsung MultiView MV800 is now available in black from stockists nationwide at RRP €279.99. *Stockists include: Harvey Norman, DID, Soundstore, Expert, Euronics and Camera Centres nationwide.
