PL100 Whether you’re taking a self-portrait in your living room or posing with friends on vacation, the new PL100 gets it right every time. Its dynamic Dual Display feature lets you see the shot on the 2.7” 230k TFT LCD and 1.5” Front LCD before taking it, so you can smile for the camera and be the photographer at the same time. The PL100 can even automatically frame and take the shot for you, capturing the moment perfectly. And say goodbye to tripods; its Tilt-back body was also designed with taking the ultimate self-portrait in mind. Factor in its Smart Auto feature that uses scene recognition to make sure you get the photo you’re imagining, and you have a surefire memory maker in your hands.

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.



  • You won’t miss out on the fun with the new PL100. It makes sure you’re in the shot ,so you can capture the memory and treasure it forever
