    Default Samsung Smart Camera EX2F - hands on field test

    The Smart Camera EX2F is Samsung's latest serious digital compact camera. Touted as the camera that lets you instantly capture beautiful memories — and share them with friends and family just as quickly. The fast aperture of the world’s brightest F1.4 lens in its class with ND(Neutral Density) filter and the clearer pixels and lower noise of the large 1/1.7" 12.4-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor combine to create expressive portraits and stunning landscapes, even in low-light situations. What’s more, you can easily — and wirelessly — share and save your masterpieces. Upload images to your favorite social networks. Now lets see what it can do.





    pretty handy size that can still fit into large coat or cargo pants pockets.

    it has a pop up flash but with the large sensor and fast lens, you might not have to use it.


    Full PSAM modes and the control dial that lets you change settings easily.

    closer look at the top plate with all the controls



    dedicated movie recording button and wifi button



    it features a HDMI port for viewing on a big screen and a USB port. What i like is that you can use an external battery to charge the camera's battery via the USB port.

    on the bottom you have a standard tripod mount and the door to the battery and SD Card





    it uses a Samsung SLB-10A battery with a CIPA Rating of 240



    and a nice bright 3" swivel LCD screen.

    Built-in ND filter





    in order to demonstrate the strength of the ND filter, i used manual exposure to shoot the image with out the filter and then take another shot with the filter switched on with no change in exposure.
