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.

Features

  • Featuring an advanced hybrid AF and a flip-up display, the Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300M captures life perfectly from any angle

Taking the sensor to the next level

Taking the sensor to the next level
Advanced 20.3M APS-C CMOS Sensor 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 colours 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

Perfecting the art of self-portraits
3.31" Wide 180º flip & touch AMOLED 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.

The speed you need for great photography

The speed you need for great photography
1/6,000 seconds Speed Shutter 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 1/6,000 seconds, 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

Capture the moments within a moment
8.6fps Continuous Shooting 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

Discover the true beauty of Full HD video
Full HD Movie (1080 / 60P) 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.

Add pop to your movies and stills

Add pop to your movies and stills
True 3D Creator (World’s 1st One Lens System) – 3D Still / Movie Capture Capability (45mm 2D / 3D Lens only) Make vacation stills and videos pop off the screen with True 3D Creator. Featuring the world’s first single lens system for capturing 2D and 3D images, the Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300M is also the only interchangeable-lens camera that lets you shoot stills and movies in 3D via Samsung 45mm 2D / 3D lens. When you’re done shooting, let your friends back home feel as if they were there with you, by showing off your stunningly vivid adventures on a compatible 3D HDTV.

Capture with greater clarity and speed

Capture with greater clarity and speed
Advanced Hybrid AF System The hybrid AF (autofocus) system combines Phase detection AF and contrast AF for faster and more accurate autofocusing. Phase detection AF nearly instantaneously determines the distance of your subject, while contrast AF fine-tunes the focus for maximum contrast. Enabled by an incredibly short shutter lag, the hybrid AF System allows you to shoot accurate, sharply detailed images faster.
Wide Range ISO (100~25600)

Wide Range ISO (100~25600)

Capturing natural-looking images indoors, or outside at night, can require a higher ISO than most cameras allow. The Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300M lets you shoot up to ISO 25600 making it twice as sensitive to light as the previous model—so you can snap high-speed photos with minimal noise and blurring, even in low light.
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 is the perfect match with the NX300M to bring out all the details for crisp professional looking photos. Organise photos by the location they were taken with GPS tagging. View and make adjustments to video clips, turn them into still images, or trim and edit according to your needs.
