Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

Extending clarity and creativity in any circumstance

Extending clarity and creativity in any circumstance
The Brightest F1.4, 24mm, 3.3x Lens When designing the EX2F, Samsung’s engineers looked to the human eye for inspiration. And as far as compact cameras go, it’s the closest thing to visual perfection on the market. With an impressive F1.4 lens -- one of brightest available -- the EX2F also delivers a wider range of aperture steps and shallow depth-of-field, giving you the ability to blur out the background of your images while keeping the focus on your subject. Plus, the equipped ND (Neutral Density) filter reduces the intensity of light so that you can take a picture with slower shutter speed even in bright sunlight to add dimension to your photo. And with the brightest F1.4 lens offering a 24mm, ultra-wide focal length and 3.3x optical zoom, you can capture more of the landscape and your friends in one shot.

See more. Shoot more.

See more. Shoot more.
3” Swivel VGA AMOLED display The AMOLED Swivel Display lets you precisely frame images and shoot from just about any angle. Compared to the TFT-LCD found on most digital cameras, the EX2F’s AMOLED display has deeper blacks and more accurate, vivid colours — even when viewed in direct sunlight. You’ll know right away if your shot is the one you want. The display also maximises battery life so you can shoot longer.

Take control, seise the moment

Take control, seize the moment
Full HD Movie Recording When it comes to capturing life’s greatest moments on film, hit-or-miss just isn’t good enough. That’s why Full Manual Control lets you capture those moments you might otherwise miss out on in auto mode. Aperture Priority makes sure your main subject stands out from its surroundings, Sutter Priority captures fast movements, and Manual Mode grants you complete control of the exposure.

Discover the true beauty of Full HD video with the brightest F1.4 lens and OIS

Then hook up your EX2F to your HDTV and watch your brilliant HF footage in the comfort of your living room.

Wide Range ISO for perfect exposure

Wide Range ISO for perfect exposure
Wide Range ISO (12800, 7 steps) Wide Range ISO makes any lighting situation the perfect one. The ability to shoot as high as ISO 12800 at normal settings means that even in low light, you’ll get rich tonal gradations and true colours. You’ll also capture clear, crisp images of fast-moving objects.

Edit RAW files and express yourself

Edit RAW files and express yourself
Support Raw image file The EX2F was engineered to help you express yourself. Its converter program gives you the freedom to edit RAW files – files that contain uncompressed original data and are not yet processed – any way you want. Normally, images are processed and compressed into JPEG files using settings in the camera. But RAW file support gives you free reign. So whether its colour, exposure difference or resolution, you can manipulate your images to your heart’s content.
One-touch wireless sharing

Wi-Fi Connectivity Forget about bringing the right cable along. Built-in Wi-Fi lets you instantly share special moments with friends and family, even when you’re on the move.

EX2F, What a GREAT Camera

Just downgraded from an DSRL. as this was too big to take out every day. I find the EX2F is ideal, fits easily into a jacket pocket. Not only that, the performance is superb, with the image stableization, I can hand hold at very low shutter speeds and large apperture.

I would recomend to any one who want ease of use coupled with top class perfomance.

Cracking camera

I have owned a 14mp travel zoom compact and a 16mp compact and this camera takes the best photos of any I have seen due to to high end lens and bigger sensor.

Shots taken indoors in a dimly lit room without a flash remain bright, sharp and good colours. Have sat in my living room in the total dark and took a night shot, was amazed to see everything in my room clearly with no noise. I couldn't see anything with my own eyes but it was able to take a clear noise free photo with this. Have started to take more creative shots with this camera, using shallow depth of field, manual shutter (blurring) etc. best camera I've ever owned.

An enthusiast model that has captured my imagination!

Been shooting with a variety of cameras since 1998 - in fact, well over 100 models. So I'm always in the game for a superb enthusiast model (or Bridge camera as they used to be called).

I came late to the game with the EX2F, a good 1-2 years after it was initially released. But I must say that once I received it and began capturing images with it, I was taken aback in a very positive way. Although I have a half-dozen other brand enthusiast high-end compact cameras, this Samsung trounces many of them, in particular, in the area of image clarity. The definition and clarity of the optics on this EX2F is nothing short of amazing! The build quality is absolutely superb, the feel is wonderful, and the ergonomics are spot on (well, in my opinion, that is). But I must again state that the clarity of the images captured by the EX2F is a direct result of the superb optics used in this camera - the results can be downright stunning (appearing more like a much higher megapixel camera). Why Samsung doesn't continue on with this line is beyond me. I suspect this is a "sleeper" model in that it may not have sold in droves initially, but once you discover this gem of a camera, you want to keep it in your collection (which I plan on doing). So Samsung - thanks for producing this camera. I am truly amazed at it's capabilities.

Great, but not perfect

Fast camera, fast af, great great images till 400 iso, still very good after that. The aperture at wide angle setting is truly amazing, the silence of use and the rotating screen makes candid shot as true pleasure.

I don't like the fact that a standard flash can't trigger with this camera, a true pity.
