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.

3.0" hVGA Hybrid Touch User Interface Presenting a user interface with twice the advantages. The Hybrid Touch User Interface offers two options: use the 5-way button to quickly move the cursor up, down, left and right to intuitively navigate the menu and make selections on the 3.0” hVGA screen. Alternately, when you want to enter text — such as an email address, for when you’re sharing photos —simply input the characters on the touch screen, much like you would on a smartphone. Navigating controls and sharing images couldn’t be easier.
Full HD

Full HD

Capture 1920 x 1080 Full HD video with life-like color and extraordinarily sharp details. Shoot longer too — the camera’s H.264 format allows longer recording than a camera with MJPEG video does. When you’re done, you can watch your brilliant HD footage large as life on your HDTV.
Full Manual Mode (A / S / M)

Full Manual Mode (A / S / M)

Full Manual (A / S / M) allows you full creative control. Aperture Priority and Shutter Priority settings let you experiment with shutter speeds and depth of field — for example, when you’re shooting fast-moving images in low light. With Samsung cameras, you can capture exactly the photos you want.
Motion Photo

Motion Photo
