Samsung EX2F

  |   by DigitalCameraReview Staff

The Samsung EX2F is an attractively understated camera with an 1/1.7-inch BSI CMOS sensor. It is small enough to be dropped in a jacket pocket and light enough to be used all day without fatigue. The EX2F features a robustly constructed magnesium body over a light-weight metal alloy frame. The EX2F’s build quality is reminiscent of the precision machining and iconic mechanical engineering of premium quality German cameras from the fifties – it was clearly manufactured to withstand the rigors of heavy use. Most current point and shoot digital cameras come with a flimsy wrist strap, but the EX2F sports a neckstrap which not only provides better protection against drops and bumps, but also saves a few seconds when a Kodak moment occurs; since the camera is always ready to go – rather than in your pocket, or worse yet, at home. The 12 megapixel Samsung EX2F is a well built imaging tool that was obviously designed for serious photographers. It is a somewhat “retro” looking little camera measuring 4.4 inches/112.1mm x 2.45 inches/62.4mm x 1.08 inches/27.55mm and weighing in at 11.2 ounces (318grams) with battery and SD card – the EX2F is slightly smaller and lighter than its predecessor. The EX2F features superb fit and finish, excellent dust/moisture seals, and a functional handgrip which provides better stability and camera handling.

  • Pros

    • Excellent Schneider zoom with a fast f/1.4 maximum aperture
    • Intuitive control layout
    • Very impressive noise mangement
    • Decent battery life
    • Easily usable by both beginners and advanced shooters
  • Cons

    • Battery charges in the camera
    • Would prefer a little more zoom

Quick Take

Looks can be deceiving - this is not your standard P&S. The EX2F impresses us with its retro design, f/1.4 lens and its straight shooting.
