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 centers 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.

Reality never looked so real

Reality never looked so real
20.3MP APS-C Sensor Customized for the NX System, the brand-new, professional-grade, 20.3MP APS-C CMOS Sensor produces images that rival those of any premium DSLR. Each individual pixel has a large sensor area and receives more light, guaranteeing low noise levels, high dynamic range and accurate color differentiation. The higher sensitivity allows you to shoot during low-light situations without graininess or other noise. The new sensor also provides Full HD video output capabilities.

1/8000s Fast Shutter Shutter speed can make the difference between capturing an iconic image and missing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The NX20’s 1/8000s shutter speed give you the flexibility to shoot like the pros—at varying speeds and light exposures. The NX20’s shutter even automatically adjusts itself as it senses environmental factors such as temperature and camera direction. And the electronically controlled focal-plane shutter reduces exposure errors.

A camera that’s quick on the draw

High Speed Capture The NX20’s High Speed Capture capabilities let you catch fleeting moments and fast-moving objects without requiring a separate sensor module. The NX System features an ultra-high-speed Auto Focus that can rival that of almost any system camera. Its all-new, advanced algorithm delivers faster and more accurate auto focus. The NX20 can shoot at 8 frames per second for better continuous shooting, and shutter lag has been reduced to just 40ms.

Discover the true beauty of HD video

1080P Full HD Stereo Movie Recording Built with 1080 30p Full HD movie recording capabilities, the NX20 transforms shooting video with a still camera into an art form. Choose from a wide range of viewing angles and zoom with confidence. The mirrorless CMOS image sensor offers precise auto focus even while you shoot. For a truly cinematic experience, the NX System has been fitted with an 18-200mm lens exclusively for Full HD video.

Instant sharing and saving, simply

Instant sharing and saving, simply
Wi-Fi Connectivity The NX20’s Wi-Fi connectivity lets you connect your digital camera to a wireless network. Save photos and videos directly to a computer or cloud service while you shoot, email them, print them wirelessly, or upload them straight to Facebook™ or YouTube. You’ll never have to worry about losing a great shot, running out of storage space, or remembering to bring the right cable along.

See more. Shoot more.

See more. Shoot more.
Super AMOLED Swivel Display The Super AMOLED Swivel Display lets you precisely frame images and shoot from just about any angle. Compared to the TFT-LCD found on most digital cameras, the NX20’s Super AMOLED display has deeper blacks and more accurate, vivid colors—even when viewed in direct sunlight. You’ll know right away if your shot is the one you want. The display also maximizes battery life so you can shoot longer.

A better window on the world

A better window on the world
SVGA EVF A key feature of the NX20 is the built-in electronic view finder (EVF). Unlike many cameras in its class, the NX20 provides photographers with a true window into reality for both short and long distances. So now you can perfectly frame each shot without any guesswork.
Wide Range ISO (12800, 7 steps)

Wide Range ISO (12800, 7 steps)

Wide Range ISO makes any lighting situation the perfect one. The ability to shoot as high as ISO 12,800 at normal settings means that even in low light, you’ll get rich tonal gradations and true colors. You’ll also capture clear, crisp images of fast-moving objects.
i-Function 2.0

i-Function 2.0

The i-Function 2.0 system makes it easy to adjust key camera settings through a single button and the value ring located on the lens, instead of the body. Designed for the novice and expert alike, i-Function 2.0 lets you quickly choose the settings that best fit the moment—and your expertise.


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.
