EX1 Whether or not you’re looking to go pro, you’re going to look like a pro with the Samsung EX1. Not only will its ultra-wide 24mm F1.8 Schneider KREUZNACH lens with 3x zoom turn heads, but so will the photos you take, guaranteeing you’ll get the most out of every moment—including light. With the EX1’s high-performance 1/1.7” CCD sensor, you’ll be taking the best possible photos in the darkest conditions. And with a 3” rotating AMOLED screen designed to give you control of your framing no matter what crazy angle you want to shoot from, your photos will come out both incredibly creative and astonishingly professional.

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 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.

Edit RAW files and express yourself.

Edit RAW files and express yourself.
The EX1 was engineered to help you express yourself. Its Samsung converter program gives you the freedom to edit RAW files – files that contain uncompressed original data and are not yet processed – any way you want. Normally, images are processed and compressed into JPEG files using settings in the camera. But RAW file support gives you free reign. So whether its color, exposure difference or resolution, you can manipulate your images to your heart's content.

Embrace both light and dark in one frame

Embrace both light and dark in one frame
Don't let your photos be dominated by the dark or the light. The EX1's Smart Range (High Dynamic Range) feature lets you vividly express both bright areas and dark areas of your subject in the same frame. So bright spots aren't oversaturated and dark spots aren't too dark. Together with Samsung's super-fast DRIMeIII imaging processor, the EX1 helps you capture high-quality images in a variety of settings and extreme lighting conditions.

Take control. Seize the moment

Take control. Seize the moment
When it comes to capturing life's greatest moments on film, hit-or-miss just isn't good enough. That's why Samsung's Full Manual Control lets you capture those moments you might otherwise miss out on in auto mode. Aperture Priority makes sure your main subject stands out from its surroundings, Sutter Priority captures fast movements, and Manual Mode grants you complete control of the exposure.

Conveniently change settings without missing a beat.

Conveniently change settings without missing a beat.
Great shots have to be caught in a split second. That's why the EX1 is equipped with a Front Wheel Key and Dual Dial. It lets you adjust your settings instantly so you don't miss the moment. Just rotate the dial to set the aperture and shutter speed or tune the white balance and color temperature. It's this convenient spin on manual control that will help you capture some of your most professional-looking images.
Optically advanced, anatomically inspired.

Optically advanced, anatomically inspired.

When designing the EX1, Samsung's engineers looked to the human eye for inspiration. And as far as compact cameras go, it's the closest thing to the anatomical wonder on the market. With an impressive F1.8 lens - one of the brightest available - the EX1 delivers a wider range of aperture steps and shallow depth-of-field, giving you the ability to blur out the background of your images while keeping the focus on your subjects. The high-end Schneider KREUZNACH lens offers a 24mm, ultra-wide focal length and 3x optical zoom so you're capturing as much of the landscape and as many of your friends as possible.
High sensitivity. Low noise. Amazing photos.

High sensitivity. Low noise. Amazing photos.

Trying to capture high-quality, low-noise images with lots of pixels and excellent light? The EX1 was engineered to do that exactly. With sensors larger than those typically found in compact digital cameras, the EX1's 1/1.7" CCD offers unrivaled sensitivity (max ISO 3200/full-resolution), making it possible to capture ultra-vivid, natural-looking, professional photos, regardless of lighting conditions.
Get creative from any angle with rotating AMOLED.

Get creative from any angle with rotating AMOLED.

With the EX1's 3" swiveling AMOLED screen, composing and reviewing images is easier - and more fun - than ever. The display rotates so you can frame your images exactly the way you want as well as shoot from just about any angle, including those tricky overhead and low-to-the-ground shots, giving you the freedom to take more artistic, expressive photos. And, compared to the usual TFT-LCD typically found on digital cameras, the EX1's AMOLED provides a higher contrast ratio, deeper blacks and more vivid colors, even when viewed from an angle or in direct sunlight. So you can fully visualize your final shot.

And since life isn't a still life, the camera's object tracking feature captures those subjects that just don't, or won't, stand still.
