The Samsung EX2F is the latest serious compact from Samsung, and features a bright f/1.4 lens with image stabilisation and 3.3x optical zoom. The back features a 3 inch vari-angle screen than can be twisted round to face the front, as well as tilted up and down for awkward angles - the screen is an AMOLED screen and is therefore bright and clear to use, even in bright sunlight.
Here are a number of other photos taken with the camera - it has a good sized front hand grip, as well as a cleverly placed control dial under the shutter so that changing settings is quick. The Fn button on the back of the camera gives you access to a "Super control panel" much like the Samsung NX series, and this makes scrolling through the options quick. The camera also has a 10fps shooting mode, this can be selected directly from the top drive mode dial, where you can also find the self-timer, bracketing, and a pre-capture mode that takes 5 photos before the shot is taken and 5 after.
