Used in regular Smart Auto or Program mode, the MV800 delivers pretty good results.
The small sensor does mean that its impossible to create a shallow depth of field though.
Colur is, on the whole, lifelike and neutral.
As long as you stick to ISO 400 (as in the image above) or below there isn’t really any issue with noise.
The wideangle setting of 26mm is enough to capture wide landscape scenes with.
The MV800 is small enough to take with you just about anywhere.
One of the bigger selling points about the MV800 are the 14 individual digital filter effects. Here’s the ‘Miniaturisation’ one in action.
…and here’s how the aptly-named ‘cartoon effect’ looks.
The ‘Funny Face’ mode is laughably bad, although in this particular example it’s also an improvement.
And, of course, who could possibly resist the lure of this most magic of Magic Frames?
