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.

Features

  • Easily share what’s happening, while it’s happening

OIS Duo + shakes off unsteady hands

OIS Duo + shakes off unsteady hands
OIS DUO + With OIS (Optical Image Stabilizer) Duo +, you can capture clear and steady video, even if you have a case of shaky hands. The Samsung SMART CAMCORDER combines a built-in OIS with digital image stabilization technology to prevent bumps, jolts, and shivers from blurring image quality. OIS Duo Plus also compensates for body movement that can occur while you’re moving around, or for the movement of the digital zoom.

Give your home movies emotional heft

Give your home movies emotional heft
Smart BGM II (with my Music) Add a professional touch to your movies with Smart BGM II (with My Music). Select one of four preloaded classical pieces to score your videos. Or import songs from your PC’s music library by using Samsung’s Intelli-Studio. And if there’s talking in the scene, it won’t get drowned out by the score. Smart BGM II automatically lowers the music, so you always hear whoever is speaking.
Share life as it happens

Share life as it happens

Wi-Fi connectivity (Auto Backup, MobileLink, AllShare Play, Social Sharing) With built-in Wi-Fi capability, you can share your moments while you’re on the move. Upload videos to YouTube™ or stream them live with UStream™ directly from the camera. With built-in Wi-Fi, you can also take advantage of Samsung Mobile Link. Mobile Link allows you to directly send your videos to your smartphone or tablet. You can also wirelessly save video clips to your PC with a single click, thanks to Auto Backup. A wireless camcorder with Samsung Smart technology means you can make more home movies and cut down on wires.

Make art out of time

Make art out of time
Art Time-Lapse Recording Capture an event that takes place over the course of hours — such as a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis — and present it in a fraction of the time. Art Time-Lapse Recording captures still frames at preset intervals, then creates an HD file with the stills placed in sequential order. A variety of modes, including Night Time, Zooming, Panning and Reverse Playback, give you more creative options.

A camcorder made for either hand

Switch Grip II (Vertical Recording) Samsung camcorders with Switch Grip II were made for both righties and lefties. No matter what hand you’re more comfortable shooting with, the camcorder adapts to your comfort level. No matter which hand you hold the camcorder with, the LCD screen will fl ip and adjust to always show the picture right-side up. You can even rotate the LCD screen 90 degrees and the image will remain. Shooting video from difficult positions has never been easier.
Capture things you couldn’t before

Capture things you couldn’t before

20x Optical zoom (40x Digital-zoom) Lightweight and compact, the QF30 goes wherever you go. It also features a Schneider Kreuznach lens with 20x optical zoom (40x digital zoom) that puts you in the middle of the action even when you’re far away. Capture a game-winning goal from the far end of the soccer field, or a band rocking out – even from the back row. Details are as crisp and clear as if you were shooting from up close.

2.7" (67.5 mm) Touch LCD

2.7" (67.5 mm) Touch LCD

Change the way you look at things with the 2.7" (67.5 mm) WQVGA Touch LCD. The large screen delivers clean, crisp images that are saturated with natural color and deep, dynamic detail. And the size also makes the touchscreen easier to use to find the feature or content you’re looking for.
BSI CMOS Sensor

BSI CMOS Sensor

Don’t let low light conditions get in the way of a great photo opportunity. The CMOS Sensor needs less light than a conventional CCD sensor for properly exposed images. Capture clearly the vibrancy of a piazza at night or the quietude of an orchard at dusk—without vertical smears.
HDMI

HDMI

Just one HDMI code is all it takes to connect your Camera / Camcorder directly into your TV, computer or DVD player. With Camera / Camcorder, making professional quality videos is just as easy as sharing them.
