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

  • The F80 HD camcorder reinvents the family video with a host of innovative features such as 52x optical zoom, HDMI output, Smart Background Music, and My Clip

Bookmark your favourite scenes with My Clip

Bookmark your favourite scenes with My Clip
My Clip Play back your favourite moments of a night out with friends or your hike through the woods — without having to waste time fast-forwarding or rewinding. The My Clip feature allows you to tag any scene in your video, so you can instantly relive the most hilarious bits or amazing sights over and over again — with no additional editing.

More natural hues in every image

More natural hues in every image
True colour with CMOS Whether lush greens in a garden, cool blues of an ocean, or a ruby-toned party dress, accurately capture the many colours of life. The F80 features a CMOS Sensor, which filters light into separate red, green and blue elements for colour reproduction that is richer, deeper, and more natural looking than any taken with a CCD Sensor. You’ll also enjoy clearer images, with no vertical smears.

Add emotion to your home movies Smart Background Music II (With My Music)

Add emotion to your home movies Smart Background Music II (With My Music)
Smart BGM II Add mood to your movies like filmmakers do — enhance your video with Smart Background Music II (with My Music). You can choose from preloaded selections, or create a soundtrack using songs from your computer’s music library. You don’t even have to adjust the sound when someone’s speaking — the music volume automatically becomes lower so none of the words are ever drowned out.

Take a break in the action

Take a break in the action
Record Pause When shooting a long video, like a baseball game or a child’s play, you’ll probably want to take a break for any long pauses or intermission. With the Record Pause feature on the Samsung F80, 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.

Record the passing of time in HD

Record the passing of time in HD
Time Lapse Time-Lapse recording enables an event such as sunsets or cloud passing by in the sky that takes hours to be captured and condensed. Still frames are taken at preset intervals and then put in sequential order to create an HD video file that depicts the passing of time.

Stay charged on the go with USB Charging

Stay charged on the go with USB Charging
USB Charging The convenient USB Charging feature helps you keep the F80 fully charged while on the go. Instead of having to search for an electrical outlet, simply plug the F80 into your laptop or any device with a USB port. The F80 even charges when you use the USB cord to upload your content, making it easy to be powered up and ready to shoot — wherever you are.
Incredible zoom for incredible details

Incredible zoom for incredible details

52x Optical Zoom (65x intelli-zoom) We know that a powerful optical zoom lens is a critical feature in any camcorder so that’s why the Samsung F80 comes with a 65x intelli-zoom (52x optical zoom lens) lens. It brings you as close to the action as you need to be and ensures that every image is as clear and crisp as you remember them. To create a higher zoom rate, we’ve added additional pixels from the image sensor to the existing optical zoom.
Capture crystal-clear video with HD recording

Capture crystal-clear video with HD recording

HD Recording (1280 x 720 30p) Experience the same clarity, richness, and vibrancy you do while watching high definition movies — with your own videos. 1280 x 720 30p HD recording offers 2.5x better resolution than conventional standard definition camcorders. And since video is captured at 30 frames per second, you’ll enjoy a cinematic-like presentation — especially when played back on your large screen HDTV or desktop HD monitor.
Convert your memories to high definition

Convert your memories to high definition

HDMI Output You live in an HD world, relive it in high-definition too. Simply connect the F80 to any HDTV, HD monitor or DVD player via an HDMI cable, and then watch as birthday parties, soccer games and vacation adventures play back sharply and vibrantly, with full-quality high resolution. Enjoy every detail as vividly as you remember seeing it.
HDIS (Hyper Digital Image Stabiliser)

HDIS (Hyper Digital Image Stabiliser)

Unstable hands can cause camcorder footage to be shaky and blurred. Thanks to its advanced computational power, the F80 realises precision image stabilising by motion analysis.



2.7" Wide LCD

2.7" Wide LCD

With the wide 2.7” LCD display, you can see everything in the shot — even when you’re next to the camcorder. That’s because the LCD display features a wide viewing angle that lets you see images on the screen clearly while you shoot, even when you’re looking from the side, above, or below.
F1.8

F1.8

The F80 comes with an F1.8 lens that ensures high-quality video, even in low light conditions. Whether you’re shooting an intimate, candle-lit dinner in a restaurant or a setting sun at dusk, the bright, wide aperture lens captures sharp, crystal-clear images every time.
HDMI

HDMI

Just one HDMI code is all it takes to connect your Camera/Camcorder directly into your TV, computer or DVD player. With Camera/Camcorder, making professional quality videos is just as easy as sharing them.
