Earlier this year, we reviewed the Samsung MV800, a MultiView camera that allows a user to capture self portraits easily due to its unique flip-up display. Building on the success of the MV800, the brand has now unveiled the Wi-Fi enabled MV900Fm, which is a part of the brand’s SMART line-up. Samsung claims that this new model too features their innovative 180-degree MultiView display, making it easy to capture and share creative self-portraits from any angle. Samsung states that the MV900F's shooting flexibility does not end with its rotating display. With Samsung's unique Gesture Shot, which uses motion-sensing technology, users can zoom and snap a photo with simple hand motions from across the room.

Samsung claims that due to its advanced creative functionality and Wi-Fi connectivity, the MV900F is a leader in the compact camera category. The brand goes on to state that with an F/2.5 bright lens to capture crisp, detailed photos even in low-light environments, a powerful 16.3M pixels BSI CMOS sensor that produces high-quality photos and video, and a wider 25 mm lens for fully-framed images, the MV900F is a high-performing and versatile camera. The 5x optical zoom also makes it easy to shoot subjects at a distance.

"The MV900F's stylish design and incredibly bright and fast lens, makes it the ideal camera for a night out in the town – as it will capture fantastic videos and photos, even in dimly-lit places. Now more than ever, we want to share these experiences instantly with friends and family, so the MV900 will take images consumers will be proud to share using the camera's SMART Wi-Fi features," said Reid Sullivan, Senior Vice President of Mobile Entertainment, Samsung Electronics America. "The unique MultiView display, intuitive touch screen and cutting-edge SMART camera technology means that superior quality images can be captured from any angle and shared at any time."

Samsung claims that the innovative 3.3-inch, 180-degree flip-out display on the MV900F helps shutterbugs easily capture and frame images from any angle, whether it's a large group of friends or a full-body self-portrait. Additionally, taking self-portraits or group shots are easy due to Samsung's unique Gesture Shot, which applies motion-sensing technology so that users can control the camera remotely using hand gestures alone. By simply making a circular hand motion, users can control the camera's zoom functions. When the shot is properly framed, users move their hand up and down to snap the photo.

Even when subjects aren't ready for their close-up, the MV900F has a range of functions to easily take professional shots. With Samsung's new Beauty Palette feature, users can choose from ten different make-up options to smoothen, brighten and add color to profile shots, directly in the camera.

The Low Light Shot mode automatically selects the camera's best setting when shooting in low light conditions. By taking three continuous shots and merging them together into one, this feature helps to create an image without the blur and noise. In addition to low-light settings, the MV900F is also designed for ease of use in the brightest sunlight. The upgraded display features a 3.3-inch, WVGA AMOLED touch display for viewing images clearly even in an intense light.

Samsung states that this is the first camera in the MultiView line to incorporate Wi-Fi technology, the MV900F instantly connects with Facebook, Picasa, Photobucket and YouTube and devices. At the touch of the SMART LINK button, or through the touch screen, it is easier than ever to instantly share and securely store pictures. The MV900F seamlessly interfaces with Samsung's line of SMART televisions, Blu-ray players, mobile PCs and smartphones for a truly unique and integrated ecosystem with painless sharing and syncing across all devices.

Boasting 1920 x 1080 Full HD video recording at 30fps, the MV900F creates high-quality movies that users would be proud to share. Combining the best of still photography with dynamic videos, the Motion Photo feature cleverly brings subjects to life while everything else in the background appears at a standstill. Thanks to Wi-Fi connectivity, video masterpieces can be uploaded to YouTube in no time.

The camera is available in either white or black options and is set to hit shelves by late August. As of now, there is now word on the MV900F’s price in India but with a US price tag of $349.99, it should be priced at just under Rs.20,000.
