Samsung steals attention in point-and-shoot world with EX2F


Samsung is planning steal attention in the point-and-shoot world with its recently announced EX2F. The 12.4-megapixel camera with a supposed 1/1.7-inch CMOS sensor is equipped with an f/1.4-2.7 lens, which is impressive for a point-and-shoot. It also has a full-size hot shoe mount on the top, dual image stabilization, a top ISO setting of 12,800, a 24-79mm 3.3x lens, and a 3-inch swivel VGA-resolution AMOLED display—all of which are quite remarkable specs for a camera of this size.

The EX2F not only has a fully manual shooting mode, but it’s also capable of shooting in RAW, can capture 1080p HD video, and has a wide array of Wi-Fi option that includes Remote Viewfinder and Auto Backup. Users can add a variety of accessories such as an optical viewfinder, an external mic, and a secondary flash in addition to the already built-in pop-up flash.

All of these remarkable specs for a point-and-shoot do come with a price, however. The Samsung EX2F will be priced at US $549 (approximately Php 23,000) and is scheduled to hit stores in August, although there’s no news yet on when it will arrive in the Philippines.
