Samsung EX2F review

Our verdict

Like the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7, the Samsung EX2F is a solid camera without being spectacular. It builds well on its predecessor and is an attractive proposition in many ways, such as its good build quality, fast and sharp lens, and variety of shooting modes. Its trump card is the Wi-Fi capability and in-camera editing, which together can eliminate the need for a computer for many images and is particularly suited to this market. Compared to some of today's competition, the imaging sensor used here is relatively small, while the camera body is quite large, which could put some people off. Likewise, serious photographers are likely to be annoyed by the slow file processing speed. All in all, though, the EX2F will satisfy those looking for a camera that gives good quality images yet is fun to use.
