Samsung EX2F Review

 

The EX2F, at the end of the day, is still a point-and-shoot, but a very good one.

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...

Great Body, But Not So Smart

 

As smartphones continue to hammer the nails into the sub-$500 pocket camera coffin, camera-makers have been trying their best to inject some allure into the point-and-shoot category. Unable to compete with the superior optics and sensors found in...

Samsung EX2F

 

The high-end Samsung EX2F point-and-shoot offers up fast lens, a swiveling OLED display, and excellent integrated Wi-Fi.

Fast lens. Top-notch Wi-Fi implementation. Sharp, adjustable OLED display. Hot shoe. Raw shooting support.

Pricey. No EVF option. Limited (3.3x) zoom range.

Performance and Conclusions The EX2F starts and shoots in about 1.9 seconds and notches a 0.25-second shutter lag. It can fire off a burst of 9 shots in about a second in high-speed burst mode. There are also modes that shoot at 5fps and 3fps, but each...

Samsung EX2F Review

 

The Samsung EX2F is a new 12 megapixel compact camera aimed at serious photographers. The pocketable EX2F features a large 1/1.7” CCD sensor, bright f/1.4 lens with a 3.3x focal range of 24-80mm, wi-fi connectivity and a 3 inch swivelling AMOLED...

The Samsung EX2F is a solid upgrade of the EX1, but 2 years is a long time in the world of digital cameras and the EX2F doesn\'t quite offer enough to keep up with the competition, despite featuring the world\'s fastest lens on any compact.

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...

Digital Camera Review: Samsung EX2F

 

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...

Samsung EX2F Review: Retro Street Shooter

Samsung EX2F WiFi Camera Review

 

We don't normally review cameras here on TDL but at CES I was impressed with Samsung's range of cameras so I arranged to review the Samsung EX2F Smart Camera. The EX2F is a Wi-Fi enabled smart camera with a F1.4 lens. The idea behind the compact camera...

Overall the EX2F is a great if you want a small lightweight compact camera that can easily share without needing a PC to be able to do it. At CES I looked at the new Samsung Galaxy Camera which runs Android and I think these add another level to the...

Samsung EX2F Digital Camera

 

Over the course of the last year quite a few digital cameras have passed through my test bench. Some have been simple point-and-shoot models, where as others have been more advanced compact and CSC cameras aimed at being suitable, but smaller sized...

The EX2F goes for about $500 USD which is still cheaper than most entry level SLR or CSC cameras. As far as compact cameras go, the EX2F gave me the cloest feel to operating a CSC/SLR camera as I've ever had in this segment of cameras; it was a very...
