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.


  • With features like F25 brightness, 161 megapixels and OIS, the ST88 yields vividly detailed images

Clearer shots in the dark

Clearer shots in the dark
F2.5 Bright lens Enjoying a night out on the town? The F2.5 lens captures the light to take clearer shots in the dark. Capturing moments at night have never been easier with this bright F2.5 lens. From sunsets to candle lit dinners, enjoy the moments as they are and never worry about getting dark and blurry results or disturbing those around you with the bright flash of a camera.

Capture a vision that’s clearer and wider

16 Mega Pixels /5x/25 mm With its remarkable 16.1 MP high-resolution sensor, the slim, stylish ST88 delivers your memories in vivid, sharply-detailed images. The 25 mm wide-angle lens ensures you’ll get a memorable group shots, with each and every person in the frame. Also, even if you’re shooting from far away, get as close as you’d like while maintaining optimal image quality with the 5x optical zoom.

It remains perfectly still even if you don’t

OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) The ST88’s Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) gives you steady and focused pictures, even if you’re not perfectly still. Whether you’re in a low light situation, zooming into a shot, or have a momentary case of shaky hands, your photos come out sharp and clear.

Create stunning photos with Magic Frame

Turn a portrait into an old film still, or put a friend’s face on a billboard. With Magic Frame, it’s easy to create clever, poster-quality images. Just select one of the built-in background templates, like Wall Art, Full Moon, Magazine or Holiday. Point the camera at your subject, align it within the on-screen template and capture the fun — to hang on your own wall or to share!

When it comes to brightness, it’s brilliant

3.0” hVGA LCD Its 3.0” hVGA LCD provides improved contrast and color reproduction, which allows you to enjoy a wider and clearer image. And its hVGA LCD brightness automatically detects environmental illumination and adjusts the LCD brightness for optimal image viewing. It does the thinking for you, which makes the ST88 a smart choice.

HD movies in the palm of your hand

HD 720p, 30 fps Inside this stylish, yet powerful camera, capture 720p HD-quality video at 30 frames per second —clearer than the average compact digital camera video. From the concert hall to birthday parties get HD-quality videos wherever you are.

See what you are going to get

Live Panorama With Live Panorama, you can capture every peak of a sprawling mountain range or every skyscraper in a magnificent city skyline to create astounding 180º panoramic images. And you can preview the image on the LCD before you even snap it. Just hold the shutter button, sweep across the scene and see what you’re going to get before you get it.

Show both sides of the story

Picture in Picture A picture may be worth a thousand words, but one photo doesn’t always tell the whole story. Picture in Picture lets you insert one image within another — for example, a shot of a game-winning homerun framed by the cheering crowd. You can even adjust the size and position of the smaller shot however you like — so you can present the complete picture, the way you experienced it.

The simple way to go pro

Smart Auto 2.0 Whether you’re capturing under bright conditions and cannot see the subject’s face, use the backlight mode and get a clearer picture using Smart Auto 2.0 (Still & Movie). Get the best possible result every time. Scene detection technology identifies up to 16 different shooting conditions, instantly analyzes key elements of your composition, and then automatically adjusts to optimize settings for every individual situation.

Bring on the laughter

Funny Face Bend, stretch, and warp your friends and family for big laughs — with the Funny Face feature you simply press the 5-direction key to enlarge heads or noses, or create hilarious distortions. And when you move the camera, the Face Tracking feature preserves the funny looks just the way you want them.

Smart Filter 2.0

Take your creativity to a higher level with the 13 lens and color effects of Smart Filter 2.0. During playback, choose the Vignetting Effect for striking compositional contrast; the Fish-eye Effect to enhance videos with a cool, distorted feel or the Miniature Effect to give subjects a scale-model look. Color filters — like Sketch and Defog — add emotion, an ultra-vivid vibe or other artistry to your images.

Intelligent Portrait

Intelligent Portrait helps you figure out all the angles — and lets you choose the best one. Snap a wide-angle shot of a friend and the camera captures two other good angles and compositions in the same click. Keep all three pictures or select only the best — the ST88 gives you the option.

Smart Face Recognition + Face Tracking

Smart Face Recognition plays favorites — it recognizes and adjusts the focus and exposure on up to 20 faces you designate (or have taken the most photos of), and makes them stand out in a group. Face Tracking ensures optimum settings for faces in motion, so your favorites are always in focus.

Sound Alive

Samsung’s advanced Zoom Noise Reduction technology — helps eliminate the whirring noise of the zoom function while you shoot and record sound. Zoom in and out all you want when capturing HD video, and still enjoy optimal quality, crystal clear sound during playback.

Perfect Portrait System

The Perfect Portrait System helps create flawless portraits, easily. Face Detection automatically adjusts settings to ensure the ideal focus and exposure. Beauty Shot and a red eye removal feature take care of the details — retouching skin tone, and eliminating facial imperfections and red eye.
Smart Album

Smart Album

Smart Album automatically organizes your photos by type, date, color, week — even by face — so you can easily find that one particular shot. Want to quickly navigate to a desired image? Let Smart Album do a face search, or use the playback menu option and view up to 16 images at once.
