If you have spent any time on the Internet, then you are no doubt familiar with the tendency among camera-owning people to photograph themselves from strange and often awkward angles. You might have been in that very same situation yourself. Is there any cure for this unfortunate trend?

The Samsung MultiView MV800 may be solution. While most cameras have their LCDs on the opposite side of the lens, the one on the MV800 is hinged, allowing it to be flipped to the other side of the device. That's not a new feature as far as cameras go, but it is a rare sight in a camera so small. Which is why the MV800 is a big deal.

The device features a 16-megapixel sensor and 5x zoom. Samsung has also furnished the device with a variety of filters as well as support for taking panorama photos.

Samsung hasn't announced a price for the camera, but its a fair bit it will retail for around $300 when its released at the end of September. Edit: The estimated price point was pretty accurate. Samsung will sell the device for $279, says the official product page.
