the samsung MV800 is a dual-view compact digital camera featuring a 3.0″ flip-out adjustable LCD screen which can rotate from 0 to 180 degrees, making any shot possible. the camera has a schneider lens with three shutter options available and 5X optical zoom. dual image stabilization eliminates camera shake so that images are at their best when you’re ready to view HD video, allowing you to watch them on the big screen via a built-in HDMI port.

the LCD display is loaded with ways for you to add your own personal touch to the interface such as through filters, special effects, creating wallpapers of images. the ‘funny face’ feature lets you bend, stretch and warp the faces of your friends and family – simply tap on the screen and start playing. with the ‘smart filter 3.0’, a single touch will transform your pictures into vintage black and white photos, brush-stroke paintings, colorful cartoons etc., and ‘3D photo’ transforms any image into just that. connect the camera to a 3D HDTV to display both still images and panoramic photos with incredible depth and dimension.

an aluminium / magnesium die cast cover houses the technological components, with aluminium buttons complete the sophisticated design.

selected by the KIDP (korean institute of design promotion) and recognized with a ‘good design’ award, the samsung MV800 is currently on show as part of the KIDP pavilion presented at the 2011 taipei world design expo.

alongside the samsungMV800 and the 11 other ‘good design’ award winners, are KIDP selected projects chosen under the category of AT&D korea (advanced technology & design korea), whereby domestic brands incorporating advanced technology with extraordinary design are acknowledged. below is a selection of these other projects which are exhibited:



top row: chipcomm, music link (smartphone accessory); airvita, s-airvita (airpurifier); chuchen, WHA-LX100iD (rice cooker) middle row: finedigital, fineview black box CR-200HD (car black box); orex, LEDOX (LED desk lamp); lutronic, SPECTRA (medical laser) bottom row: loofenlee, LF-NG (food waste handling machine); memorette inc., memorette (USB); innodea inc., lumiprop (mouth prop oral light)

  • I think Samsung’s design is generally fine and decent, but frankly, their function often doesn’t correspond to the initial impression.
