A couple of years back, Samsung unveiled the DualView digital cameras, which had a small front-facing LCD screen to more easily frame and snap self-portraits. The company is in love with the idea, apparently, because Samsung is taking it to the next level with the Multiview.
Samsung has upped the self-portrait ante with the Multiview MV800, the first digital camera with a 3-inch touch LCD screen that flips up and over the top to give you a full-sized narcissistic view of you and yours.
Since the shutter release on top of the MV800 gets covered when you flip the screen up, Samsung supplies a second shutter release on the rear, which you'll have to feel around for the snap the self-portrait.
To make sure you get everyone in the picture, the MV800 has a wide-angle 26mm lens. More specs: 16 MP imager, 5x optical zoom, HD video recording, 3D photo function (which can only seen in 3D when viewed on a 3D HDTV, otherwise shots just look like blurry pictures) and a suggested retail price of $279.
It's also got a bevy of goofy effects modes, like one where you can put someone's head on someone else's body, or create a picture-in-picture. I don't know if you can tell from the photos, but it's also really tiny.
