If there’s one thing that’s definitely going in the right direction with point-and-shoot cameras these days, it’s design. The new Samsung MV900F is a beautiful example. It’s got a 3.3-inch capacitive touchscreen that flips out 180 degrees and Wi-Fi connectivity. But can the photos ever live up to the camera’s design?
The MV900F is an uber-little camera: It’s just 17mm thick and weighs only 130 grams. But it’s actually pretty loaded with the best itty-bitty cameras have to offer these days. The touchscreen eliminates the need for tiny, difficult buttons. The 16.3-megapixel CMOS sensor is standard issue for a point-and-shoot and the camera shoots 1080p video as expected. We’re often dubious of the flip-out screens that seem like they’re only good for vanity shots, but we love it in this case. As you’ll see below, the flip-out screen also serves as an impromptu camera stand.
We’ll let you know what the situation is for the Australian market as soon as we get those details.
