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.

Smart Auto 2.0
When you’re taking photos under bright conditions and cannot see the subject’s face, use the backlight mode and get a clear picture using Smart Auto 2.0 ( for Still Shots & Videos). Scene detection technology identifies up to 16 different shooting conditions once you choose and condition it and analyses key elements of your composition.

Picture in Picture
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but one photo doesn’t always tell the whole story. Picture in Picture lets you insert one image within another — for example, a shot of a game-winning homerun framed by the cheering crowd. You can even adjust the size and position of the smaller shot to your preference — so you can remember the experience.

Intelligent Portrait*

Intelligent Portrait*

Intelligent Portrait helps you figure out the angles — and lets you choose the best one. Snap a wide-angle shot of a friend and the camera captures two other good angles and compositions in the same click. Keep all three pictures or select only the best — the ST66 gives you the option.
*On intelligent portrait mode only.
Smart Face Recognition + Face Tracking

Smart Face Recognition + Face Tracking

Smart Face Recognition plays favourites — it recognises and adjusts the focus and exposure on up to 20 faces you designate (or have taken the most photos of), and makes them stand out in a group. Face Tracking helps ensure optimum settings for faces in motion, so your favourites are nearly always in focus.
Sound Alive

Sound Alive
