Samsung MV800 16.1MP Compact Camera, $158

Our camera expert called the 16-megapixel Samsung MV800 "part touchscreen camera, part book." The back of the camera features a 3-inch LCD that flips up on hinges to aid with self-portraits and odd-angle shots--and it can also act as a built-in tripod. The MV800 listed for $280 when it launched last September, and these days the price has dropped to about $200-250 online. B&H Photo has a great deal online at the moment--only $158, with no tax and free shipping.
