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 disposal 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.

Multi-Flash Mode That Incorporates The Rhythmic Movements

Multi-flash mode that incorporates the rhythmic movements
Multi-flash mode is suitable for motion analysis and special effects purposes, by applying several flash exposures at once when capturing a photo. The flash fires according to the flash count and interval you have set, and the flash output level can be set at 1/4 or less. If you use multi-flash mode in the darkroom as well as indoors, it can help you to incorporate the rhythmic movement of a person or a moving subject.

Enjoy Your Perfect Shot With A-TTL Flash & Manual Flash

Enjoy your perfect shot with A-TTL Flash & Manual Flash
The Samsung SEF580A Flash helps you optimize your photographs in A-TTL (Through The Lens) Flash. In the A-TTL mode, an appropriate level of the flash is calculated based on the exposure value and shutter speed set on the camera by measuring the light entering through the lens. This feature helps ensure that the correct amount of light, through the exposure timing, is received on the image sensor. This helps give control back to the photographer, as it allows for elements such as aperture and shutter speeds to dictate the exposure and not the other way around. In the Manual mode, you can select the position of the bulb from the following settings: 24, 28, 35, 50, 70, 85, or 105 mm(in 35 mm format standard). Also, You can set the flash output at 1/3 stop from P1/1 (maximum output) to P1/256 (minimum output).

In the A-TTL/Manual High-speed sync flash mode, you can use the flash at a faster shutter speed than the device’s regular flash sync speed. If the shutter speed is faster than the sync speed, the flash will fire multiple times at high speed while the shutter is partially open. It offers a high intensity of light, which is designed to be better than the built-in flash, and also provides great control over the intensity levels. ※ HSS Function is compatible with the Samsung NX30 and successors.
