Samsung EX2F Wi-Fi-enabled Smart camera unboxed

Samsung EX2F

The Samsung EX2F, the latest edition to the Smart camera range from the company, arrives with claims of employing the ‘world’s brightest compact camera lens’ with an aperture of f1.4. It builds up on the success of its predecessors and has been deployed with the Wi-Fi connectivity feature to instantly share captured images with friends over social networking websites.

The lightweight point-and-shoot snapper features front wheel key and dual dials for full manual control. The 12MP camera should deliver clear pictures even in poorly lit conditions and facilitate clicking photos while recording 1080/30p HD videos. Its 24mm wide angle lens makes for relatively greater control over exposure time and enables photographers to shoot at a shallow depth of field. And needless to say, the shooter’s image stabilization cuts down on the blurring effect due to camera shake.

“We created the EX2F to show that taking great pictures doesn’t have to involve carrying a heavy and bulky DSLR wherever you go. Because the best shots often arise when you least expect them, the EX2F delivers manual control and stunningly bright image quality in a body that is small and light enough to carry around every day. It’s the perfect compact on-the-road companion for the DLSR user who expects the best image quality with full creative control. The inclusion of Samsung’s pioneering Wi-Fi technology also means that you can share those images straight from the camera, giving you the freedom to shoot and share wherever the journey takes you,” commented Myoung Sup Han, Senior Vice President and Head of the Digital Imaging Business, Samsung Electronics.

The Samsung EX2F comes encased in a magnesium chassis and the DSLR-like camera can also shoot in the RAW mode to reproduce professional-grade photos. The imager is fitted with a 3-inch AMOLED Swivel display and incorporates the easy-to-use Smart Panel UI. And as mentioned above, its Wi-Fi connectivity function comes in handy for quickly uploading images to websites like Facebook, Picasa and more. Mobile Link allows establishing connections with smartphones, while Remote Viewfinder permits users to remotely click still shots through a mobile device.

The Samsung EX2F is expected to arrive in the US this August.
