Samsung EX2F

imaging-resource.com
6 March 2013
  • Conclusion: Samsung is unusual in that it designs both smartphones and cameras. That means it knows what a smartphone can do and what a camera can do and, equally important, what each of them can't do very well. Samsung has no doubt made its mark in the smartphone arena, and it is still making in-roads with cameras. That said, the latest generation of cameras from the company have been very good -- especially its NX line of compact system/mirrorless cameras (CSCs).
  • Pros: Attractive design and ergonomic build with real grip, Fast f/1.4 Schneider-Kreuznach 3.3x lens that starts at a wide 24mm equivalent, Optical image stabilization, Built-in ND filter, Advanced controls, including Command and Drive mode dials, Popup flash, with solid range that's helped by fast apertures, Smart hot shoe, Articulated 3-inch AMOLED display, Built-in WiFi, RAW capture capability, and good RAW image quality, Sharp resolution, with good overall color, and sh...

Samsung EX2F review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: Like the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7, the Samsung EX2F is a solid camera without being spectacular. It builds well on its predecessor and is an attractive proposition in many ways, such as its good build quality, fast and sharp lens, and variety of shooting modes. Its trump card is the Wi-Fi capability and in-camera editing, which together can eliminate the need for a computer for many images and is particularly suited to this market.

Samsung EX2F Smart Camera

MacWorld
2 January 2013
  • Excerpt: The Samsung EX2F fits neatly into the advanced compact camera category but offers more than just a balance of manual and automatic controls. It’s outfitted with a superfast f/1.4, 3.3X (24-80mm) wide-angle zoom lens and built-in Wi-Fi. Samsung seems to have an edge over other manufacturers when it comes to integrating Wi-Fi into its cameras, and the EX2F is no exception.
  • Pros: Good, sharp performance; fast startup; Wi-Fi; Smart modes
  • Cons: Sometimes struggling in low light and in low-contrast scenes

Samsung EX2F compact camera

MacWorld
1 January 2013
  • Conclusion: The only downside is, despite including bags of detail from centre to corner of frame, pictures can look better on the camera’s back than your own desktop.
  • Pros: Solid-feel metal build; tilting and swivelling high contrast AMOLED back screen; plenty of manual control; fast aperture lens allows for low light shooting and creative shallow depth of field effects
  • Cons: Bright lens can overexpose brighter daylight scenes; costs as much as starter DSLR or CSC which could offer better overall results, and of a similar size to the smaller CSCs like the Nikon J2

  • Excerpt: In July 2012 Samsung announced the replacement for its EX1 prestige compact in the shape of the Samsung EX2F. This pint-sized, high-end compact is another addition to the electronic giant's growing line of Wi-Fi-enabled smart cameras, and offers loads of advanced features, including full manual controls, a fast f/1.4-2.7 zoom lens, and Wi-Fi connectivity for wireless image transfer. At first glance there's little to distinguish the EX2F from its predecessor.

  • Excerpt: Premium compacts – meaning feature-festooned pocket models with plenty of manual controls, a high quality build and equally high price tag – are on the rise in popularity in austere times. Not everyone wants to a buy a set of lenses for better pictures, and alternatively some may want a more manageable, less ‘faffy’ camera to back up that DSLR.

Pocket Lint
24 September 2012
  • Excerpt: But does this connected compact connect in the all-important performance and image quality departments too; and is it good enough to keep the larger-sensor high-end compacts at bay?
  • Pros: f/1.4-2.7 maximum aperture, vari-angle LCD screen, raw file capture, good quality images
  • Cons: Inconsistent autofocus particularly with close-up focus, Wi-Fi kills battery life, high ISO image quality, limited zoom range, body finish chips easily
