Samsung EX2F camera

The industry-leading advanced f/1.4 24mm wide angle lens and wide aperture deliver clear images and video even in very low light conditions. The Samsung EX2F camera excels in dim atmospheres with a 1/1.7-inch 12-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor to achieve crisp, blur-free images regardless of the lighting. The new Smart EX 2F camera also incorporates full manual control as well as Aperture and Shutter Priority modes. The Dual Dial and front wheel keys allow photographers to quickly and easily adjust exposure for effortless manual control. These features keep the Samsung EX2F digital camera ahead of the curve in the point and shoot category, offering effortless versatility typically offered in higher-end interchangeable lens cameras.
Samsung Smart camera design
Housed in a compact and lightweight body, the sleekly designed Samsung EX2F Smart camera is easy to carry anywhere and capture spontaneous shots at a moment’s notice. The 3-inch Swivel Amoled display is perfect for lining up great shots and viewing them under any lighting conditions. The quick-responding screen responds displays images in high contrast, while the swivel functionality allows picture-taking from low and high angles with minimal effort. The screen also touts Samsung’s Smart Panel user interface, which packs all shooting options and image parameters into one menu screen for easy control over the final image.
1080p Full HD Movie Recording at 30 frames per second
The new Samsung Smart camera EX 2F also delivers 1080p Full HD Movie Recording at 30 frames per second, with stereo sound for exceptional quality video that begs to be enjoyed on a Full HD TV. Plus, with the Dual Capture feature, 12-megapixel photos and HD video can be captured simultaneously, so that any scene can be remembered in both photo and video.
Samsung f/1.4 24mm wide angle lens
The Samsung EX2F f/1.4 24mm wide angle lens is roughly four times as bright as an f/2.8 camera lens, and the lens unit now consists of 11 elements in nine groups, with four aspherical lenses and two high refractive lenses. This combination allows for an increase in the amount of light on the sensor, resulting in an increase in both image quality and zoom ratio.
Dual Optical & Digital Image Stabilization
Designed with a built-in Neutral Density filter, the lens gives the user greater control over exposure time in different conditions and gives photos a more neutral appearance even when over-exposed. The new Samsung Smart camera also allows for shooting at a very shallow depth of field to isolate subjects from the background for stunning portraits. To make bright images clearer, the Samsung 2F Smart camera also includes Dual Optical and Digital Image Stabilization (OIS and DIS) to minimize the effect of camera shake- especially useful in low-light situations.
Samsung Mobile Link app
The Samsung Mobile Link app makes it quick and easy to transfer photos from the camera directly to a supported phone or tablet, using a free app. Users can also access the Remote Viewfinder app to use their smartphone or tablet’s screen to frame shots from a variety of angles.
Samsung EX2F Smart camera with WiFi connectivity
With images so good they have to be shared, the Samsung Smart camera EX2F takes the combination of high-quality imaging paired with connectivity to a new level. Integrated WiFi connectivity enables users to connect to wireless networks without the need for any additional cards or devices, making it seamless to share and store photos and video directly from the camera. In addition, sharing to social networking sites such as Facebook or Picasa is easy and pictures can also be sent directly via email.
