Overall, the Samsung MV800 Point and Shoot Digital Camera has performed very well in most areas, with just a few areas that could do with some work, such as video recording.
The range of different settings and options available in the MV800 software was very impressive. We really liked the live panorama mode, 3D mode, and photo filter, to name a few.
We feel that there were areas that could be improved though, such as the video recording quality, responsiveness of the touch screen (as it’s now winter, our cold, frozen fingers were sometimes not detected properly), and also the price.
At £249.99, we don’t feel that the Samsung MV800 has managed to prove that it’s worth the very expensive price tag, which you could use to purchase a decent DSLR camera. However, you do have to remember that the MV800 is also one of the first point and shoot cameras to incorporate a screen mounted on brackets. It’s also a very stylish, compact and lightweight.
