Samsung have just unveiled this new high-end compact camera, packing some impressive features. Topping the list is the f1.4, 24-80mm lens, with optical image stabilisation.
The EXF2 has a built-in neutral density (ND) filter which enables the lens to achieve its full potential in very bright conditions. Samsung are saying this is the brightest lens of any compact camera; we are looking forward to testing that theory.
As with all the recent compacts from Samsung, the EX2F offers Wi-Fi, this can be used to upload your photos straight to the social networks, or back them up using online cloud storage space.
The sensor is a 1/1.7-inch 12 Megapixel BSI CMOS sensor, which is said to deliver DLSR like results.
Samsung are promoting the EX2F as the perfect accompaniment for DSLR owners looking for a portable equivalent.
This camera comes with a 3-inch AMOLED hinged display, allowing for multiple viewing angles and self-portraits.
Stills can be captured in JPEG and RAW formats, while movies can be recorded in 1080p high definition at 30fps. The EX2F is capable of taking stills while simultaneously recording video.
The camera sports excellent manual controls, there is wheel key on the front, and dual feature dials on the top.
If you’re looking for a bright, wide-aperture, high-end compact, you should defiantly place this offering on your short list.
