Forget DualView, Samsung MV800 Has a Back that Flips 180-Degrees

Samsung’s DualView feature adds a small LCD screen to the front of compact cameras for self-portraits, but why use a small screen when you can use the screen on the back? Announced today, the company’s new MultiView MV800 camera has a large 3-inch touchscreen on the back that can flip up 180-degrees, letting narcissists users view it from the front (or above, or below). No word on when it will be released, but the 16MP camera will be priced at $280 when it is.

P.S. Is it just me, or are camera UIs looking more and more like smartphone UIs?

    There’s a shutter button in the back of the sensor, inside the screen when collapsed.

    Of all photos I make, photos of me and someone standing  with me, taken from hand, take 0.00001%. Sales point of this camera is 100% relaying on function that i actualy don’t need :) 
    But maybe it’s just me ;)
