Not to be deterred by the unfortunate turn of events that befell their tablets, Samsung in a complete turnaround proceeds to launch the EX2F high-end compact camera (equipped with probably the fastest lens in its class).
Since it is listing the lens as one of the biggest draw, here it is in the spotlight:
- f1.4, 24mm (the widest aperture in its class)
- 1/1.7 inch 12 megapixel BSI CMOS
What these numbers mean is that this camera can capture images at such high speed even in low light conditions (up to four times the capability of the f2.8 lens which is already considered great by today’s standards).
Another feature that can take this camera ahead of the pack is the plethora of manual control features. While it is easy and convenient to have a camera to just point and click, the real enthusiast and even the professional like to have more precise control.
Another noteworthy feature is the WiFi connectivity which is denoted by the “f” in the name. This is useful in today’s social media-centric society where uploading images to Facebook is almost as common occurrence as eating.
Other features include the ability to record 1080 quality videos at 30 fps and the increasingly common ISO count of 80-3200. To complete the great features, Samsung also included the 3 inches AMOLED display that can swivel to incredible angles to let you take shots not normally possible in such cameras.
No official announcement yet on the price tag but the new Samsung EX2F is estimated to be around $549.
