Samsung has announced the release of a new camera, the EX2F.
The EX2F is the latest model in Samsung's growing range of Wi-Fi enabled SMART cameras. Following the success of the EX1 with f/1.8 lens, the new model is engineered to deliver even brighter photography thanks to its f/1.4 lens, the brightest in any compact camera.
The EX2F comes with the advantage of being able to store and share images remotely using the Wi-Fi functionality. The Full Manual Control is ideal for DSLR-owners looking for more portable equipment to capture images spontaneously on the go and for photographers looking for a step-up from their point-and-shoot.
The world's brightest compact camera lens, The EX2F’s f/1.4 24mm wide-angle lens is approximately four times as bright as a f/2.8 camera lens.
The lens on the EX2F also incorporates a Neutral Density (ND) filter
, giving the user greater control over exposure time in different conditions and making photos appear more neutral in situations of over-exposure. It also allows for shooting at a very shallow depth of field, so users can isolate their subjects from backgrounds to create stunning portraits. To make bright images clearer, the EX2F also includes Dual IS (OIS and DIS) to minimize the effect of shaking – particularly useful in low-light situations.
The camera also allows shooting in RAW mode for professional standard pictures.
The EX2F is the latest in Samsung’s SMART CAMERA range of Wi-Fi-enabled cameras, which provide a combination of high-quality imaging paired with connectivity. Wi-Fi enables the secure storage of images through Auto Backup to a PC or saving to the Cloud. In addition, sharing to social networking sites such as Facebook or Picasa is easy.
The camera is priced at £429 RRP and will be available from early August.
