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 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.

Taking the sensor to the next level
Worthy of professional photographers, but made for the enthusiast, the 20.3MP APS-C CMOS sensor—now with Phase detection AF—delivers high-quality images and lifelike colors with the highest resolution in its class. It’s also ideal for out-focusing photography, thanks to a sensor that’s the largest used in a mirrorless camera. The sensor, which measures 23.5mm x 15.7mm, collects the most light so you can create beautiful images without noise, even in low-lit situations.
Perfecting the art of self-portraits
The Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300M was created to be an extension of your hand. Featuring a 3.31" tilt display that flips up a complete 180 degrees, it lets you capture life from the right angle every time. Perfect for snapping self-portraits and group-selfies. There’s also a hybrid user interface that combines the AMOLED touchscreen with a 5-way button so you can navigate the menu, adjust settings and share images—quickly and intuitively.

Always ready to share your memories
Connect to your world—and to your smart devices. A dedicated Direct Link hot key lets you quickly and wirelessly send images to a mobile phone, tablet, PC or Smart HDTV—directly from your camera. It’s perfect for sharing moments with friends, family and your favorite social networks. The Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300M also includes Dual band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) support so you can connect faster and with more stability to wireless networks around you.
The speed you need for great photography
You have a split second to take the shot your family will be talking about for generations. Take it with the Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300M, which boasts a shutter speed of 1/6000 sec, the fastest in its class. With that kind of shutter speed—and the fast autofocus system—you can capture a skater whipping by or a snowboarder in midair, without a hint of motion blur.
Capture the moments within a moment
When you’re shooting fast-moving action such as a tennis player stretching for a shot at the net, effortlessly capture the entire sequence with a series of brilliantly clear stills. The Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300M lets you shoot continuously at an ultra-fast rate of 8.6 frames per second to ensure you get the shot you want. The advanced autofocus system brings crystal clarity to fast-moving subjects, and a short shutter release lag helps you capture the fleeting moment before the subject moves out of frame.
Discover the true beauty of Full HD video
The Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300M may not look like a camcorder, but it capably captures Full HD 1080/60P video. With uncompromising performance bolstered by an 18-200mm lens and wide zoom capability, the Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300M delivers smooth, professional-looking videos that play well on your HDTV. When you’re ready for showtime, an HDMI interface lets you transmit your vision straight to the big screen.
