NX 12-24mm f4-5.6 ED


NX 12-24mm f4-5.6 ED From the architectural jewels of a city to the majestic wonders of nature, the Samsung 12-24mm ultra-wide zoom lens can help to fit a desired scene into the shot. Now you can snap pictures of a large wedding party without having to ask everyone to huddle close together. Highly universal, the lens is equally adept at dramatic close-ups and panoramic landscapes.

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.

  • 12-24mm Ultra Wide Zoom Lens
  • Great for universal shots from dramatic close-ups to panoramic landscapes
  • Compact design for easy storage
  • Low chromatic aberration for high-quality images

Capture the width of your imagination

Whether you’re relaxing with friends on the deck of a yacht or standing before a cathedral’s towering facade, capture images that will still resonate years later. Even if there’s no room for stepping back, the ultra-wide angle lens can help to ensure every person — and every spire — is in the frame. By giving you maximum control over your perspective, the lens helps make landscapes, interiors and even self-portraits more dramatic and expressive.

Portable yet powerful

With a compact design for portability, the 12–24mm zoom lens helps you take professional-quality pictures wherever you travel. Adding to the convenience is the i-Function feature, which gives you one-touch access to your camera’s manual settings. Quickly and intuitively adjust settings such as shutter speed and aperture while previewing the changes in real time for the perfect shot every time.

Low chromatic aberration for high-quality images

The 12–24mm lens features extra-low dispersion glass, which reduces the chromatic aberration that occurs when different wavelengths of light pass through the lens at different points. Using this special lens, the Samsung NX is able to combat the effects of chromatic aberration to produce a quality image in almost all directions.

Precisely designed to capture your vision

Spherical lenses create image distortion by causing light rays passing through the centre and edge to have different focal points. Samsung’s advanced optical processing techniques correct this spherical aberration by expertly manipulating the curvature of the lens to add aspherical elements. Aspheric lenses are quite complex and require a high degree of precision to produce, but the end result — sharp images — is worth the effort.
