Samsung EX2F review

Dynamic range

Like most cameras, the performance of the EX2F is affected by the available light, exposure and ISO setting used. In low-contrast light, where a high ISO is required, the range of tones and colours is compromised. Images shot in good light are punchy, with a good level of tonal detail maintained in sunny skies. The introduction of an HDR mode is a saving grace for those scenes with a range of tones beyond the camera. In this mode, it is possible to meter for the highlights of the sky, yet still gain detail from the shadow and midtone areas. This option is preferable when you need to pull back detail from shadows where it can be noisy due to underexposure.
