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.

Awesome Camera once I connected a bluetooth wireless mic

I purchased the camera to record product presentation videos. I had recorded videos with the cameras microphone but was not pleased. The audio was poor as the photographer would change location and sometimes due to wind the audio was hard to hear.

I purchased a Nolan bluetooth mic and quickly paired it with the camera. Unfortunately the camera app that came with the camera would not recognize the bluetooth audio source. After a few months I discovered the LG Camera, but it did not recognize the bluetooth mic. I discovered an app named btmono on the app site. Once installed I simply paired the camera to the bluetooth mic the started btmono and turned the mic on. I then started the LG Camera app and chose microphone from the audio source and default for audio encoder. I can now clip the BT Mic to my shirt and record awesome presentations. You will love the quality of videos and photos. And.... It does so many more things

The Smartest Camera Ever! Simply Amazing!

I am so pleased with my purchase, i recently got the Samsung Galaxy camera and it is amazing! the device is made of premium materials and works perfectly! the zoom is extraordinary and crystal clear, the pictures come out vivid and clear and blow up on the big screen with amazing quality.

the optics on this camera are far into the advanced camera section! the camera boots up quickly and android works fluid and slick! and the battery is phenomenal, it lasts for so long considering its large super clear screen which has vivid viewing angles and shows pictures at a new level! i especially like how i can read my emails on the go, WITH A CAMERA. Due to it being 4G I can upload my photos to friends no matter where I am! I am so pleased with this camera and cannot recommend it enough! the camera is worth the money. I cannot find any faults or cons about this camera, i am so pleased with my purchase.

The Perfect Camera for the Connected

The Galaxy Camera is the ultimate social camera. While WiFi uploads are nothing new to point and shoot cameras, Samsung has taken it one step furtherby essentially taking an S3 brain, and adding a camera body with a really good zoom lens.

The Galaxy camera is smaller and lighter than a SLR camera which makes it perfect for every day use or taking on vacations.The Samsung Galaxy Camera is more than just a camera though, with it you can play games, check and respond to emails, keep up to date on your latest social media site and share files and photos between devices using AllShare cast.
