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.

A bigger screen for better resolution

A bigger screen for better resolution
The Samsung H300 is the first entry-level HD camcorder that comes equipped with a 3” LCD screen. Compared to the standard 2.7” display, the 3” LCD screen is 20 larger which makes it easier to see what you’re shooting and capture clean, crisp images that are saturated with natural colour and deep, dynamic detail. Plus, the intuitive LCD touch screen interface makes using the H300 so easy, it’s a pleasure.

Be part of the action with 30x Optical Zoom

Be part of the action with 30x Optical Zoom
Get closer to the action with the Samsung H300’s 30x Optical Zoom lens. With more valid pixels than any competitor in its class, the 30x Optical Zoom lens lets you see more detail without having to get closer to the action. At 30x zoom, you can be sure that your videos will be clear, crisp, and perfectly captured every time.

The camcorder that adapts to your surroundings

The camcorder that adapts to your surroundings
When you’re shooting, the last thing you want to worry about is adjusting your camcorder’s settings to compensate for varying light conditions or image details. Whether shooting landscapes or family portraits, the H300’s intelligent Smart Auto feature automatically selects the best shooting mode to capture video and even stills. Smart Auto has 10pre-set modes to manage a wide number of different shooting situations such as low lighting, portraits, sunsets, and more. No matter what the conditions are, Smart Auto will help you to take the perfect shot every time.

Take a break in the action

Take a break in the action
When shooting a long video, like a baseball game or a child’s play, you may want to take a break for any long pauses or intermission. With the H300’s Record Pause feature, you can pause the recording and then pick up right where you left off without creating a new file. This way you only have one file to work with and don’t have to merge files for editing, sharing or transferring. Now recording home movies and sharing them with your family has never been easier.
Get more life out of your battery

Get more life out of your battery

Enjoy low power consumption and a more efficient battery with Samsung’s advanced technology. With this innovative technology, you can enjoy up to three hours of battery life while recording your HD videos. That means you can continuously record your child’s baseball game without missing any of the action while changing batteries. Plus, you no longer have to carry around an extra battery or charger for those shorter trips. (Please note: This feature is available only while using the Continuous Recording mode with a bundled battery).
Shoot video that’s as clear as day

Shoot video that’s as clear as day

The Samsung H300 HD camcorder, with its advanced BSI CMOS technology, adds new light to your videos. The H300 uses a 1/4” 5M (1/6.3” 1.75M effective) Pixel BSI CMOS to deliver improved sensitivity compared to conventional CMOS sensors. By dramatically reducing image noise and distortion and enhancing recording quality during low light conditions, you can capture crystal-clear videos whether you’re at a birthday party in a dimly lit restaurant or at home recording your child’s first steps.
Say goodbye to shaky videos

Say goodbye to shaky videos

No longer will once-in-a-lifetime recording be ruined by shaky hands or blurred image. The H300 is equipped with the OIS Duo feature—a built-in optical image stabilizer combined with digital image stabilization technology that quickly sets H300 apart from competing products. The OIS Duo automatically adjusts to compensate for even the slightest hand or body movements, resulting in steadier videos. What’s more, the OIS Duo maximises the area of stability at the same time, for crisp videos even when walking or moving around.
Face Detection

Face Detection

Capturing the faces of multiple people in the same frame is always difficult. That’s why Samsung developed its advanced Face Detection technology. With Face Detection, the H300 is able to accurately detect and recognise up to six faces, ensuring that every facial feature of each person is always in focus.
Compact Size

Compact Size

We’ve made the design of the Samsung H300 camcorder even more compact by removing the excess space around the display screen hinge. The H300 also comes with a retractable carrying strap that makes transporting your camcorder more handy and comfortable.
USB Charging

USB Charging

Out of battery Simply connect your Samsung camcorder to any USB port and it will start recharging. Now you won’t have to lug around cumbersome chargers or an extra set of batteries. This intelligent feature gives you the freedom to shoot, share, and recharge from almost anywhere.
