Summary: Samsung's EX2F pairs a fast f1.4-2.7 lens with Wi-Fi and other advanced features aimed squarely at the advanced compact market. Does it all come together into a winning package?
Summary: As It should already be clear what they read so far, the Samsung EX2F is the compact ideal for those who simply want to go home with photographs of the holiday or event. It is not as simple and straightforward to use because, what could be its main advantage, the lens f / 1.4.
Pros: Excellent quality of pictures and videos, So many creative features and advanced, Adjustable screen, Optical light.
Cons: The lens is also sometimes too bright, It is easy to use to be a compact. Autonomy is not high.
Excerpt: A little bulkier than most compact point-and-shoots, the EX2F makes up for the extra size with extra features that will make getting the perfect shot easier. The rear display swivels out so you can frame the shot perfectly even if the camera isn't right in front of you.
Conclusion: Is the EX2F as good as a DSLR? Not quite. The EX2F, at the end of the day, is still a point-and-shoot, but a very good one. The camera produces quality photos, thanks to the large sensor and excellent lens. The AMOLED screen is also marvelous, as is the Wi-Fi.
Summary: My photographic heroes have always been “straight shooters” – documentary, street/candid, Natural/Available Light, and environmental portrait photographers. Famous straight-shooters used compact Leica 35mm rangefinder cameras to capture many of the iconic moments that defined 20th century history.
Pros: Excellent Schneider zoom with a fast f/1.4 maximum aperture, Intuitive control layout, Very impressive noise mangement, Decent battery life, Easily usable by both beginners and advanced shooters
Cons: Battery charges in the camera, Would prefer a little more zoom
Pros: Tactile dials make the EX2F’s manual settings easy to dive into. Smart auto setting does a good job of reading the scene. The f/1.4 lens allows for nice shallow depth of field. 12-megapixel sensor captures good-looking photos.
Cons: Not-so-smart editing and export — I’d often simply re-take photos with my iPhone so I could edit them in Snapseed and upload them to Facebook with a caption. I’d be willing to compromise image quality for a more integrated, quicker editing and uploading experience.
Summary: There isn’t too much to complain about when it comes to the performance of the EX2F, and in general it’s a pleasing camera to use. That being said, there are a few minor niggles which are worth addressing.
Pros: Wi-Fi functionality; Full specification; Good image quality; Impressive screen
Cons: Sluggish when shooting Raw files; A few of the buttons disappoint with regards to responsiveness and handling
