Samsung Launches Fast Compact: EX2F
Samsung has released the EX2F, the latest model in its
growing range of Wi-Fi-enabled smart cameras. The new model succeeds the EX1,
and includes an f1.4 lens – the fastest of any current compact digital camera.
The EX2F includes a wide choice of manual control options – including full manual, aperture priority and shutter priority – with a finger-wheel on the front and a programmable dial surrounding the camera’s lens to control exposure. The 24mm lens unit consists of eleven elements in nine groups, with four aspherical lenses and two high refractive lenses. Dual image stabilisation (optical and digital) reduces the effect of hand-shake.
The magnesium-alloy compact houses a BSI CMOS sensor (7.44 x 5.58mm) which can capture 12-megapixel stills (RAW and JPEG) and Full HD (1080/30p) movies. Still images and video can be captured simultaneously using the camera’s Dual Capture feature. On the back is a fully articulated, three-inch AMOLED display.
Built-in wifi allows users to transfer images to and from the camera without cables and control the camera with a compatible smartphone, using the phone’s screen as a remote viewfinder.
Pricing and local release dates were not available at the time of writing.
