We had talked about the Samsung MV800 when the IFA 2011 took place in early September. The ability to move the screen around was pretty nifty. The camera has now been officially launched in India. A quick recap of some of its features – the MV800 uses a 16.1 MP sensor and has a 5x optical zoom lens. The 3-inch display at the back supports touch so you don’t have to depend on physical controls. The camera gives its users a bunch of filters and effects to play around with. The touch screen controls means that users can also play around with features such as Funny Face that let you warp photos of subjects by simply moving the finger on the image.
