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.

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
Natural 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 CAMCORDER 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.

Smart BGM II Add a professional touch to your movies with Smart BGM II (with My Music). Select one of four preloaded classical pieces to score your videos. Or import songs from your PC’s music library by using Samsung’s Intelli-Studio. And if there’s talking in the scene, it won’t get drowned out by the score. Smart BGM II automatically lowers the music, so you always hear whoever is speaking.

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 CAMCORDER, 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.
Incredible zoom for incredible details

Incredible zoom for incredible details

52x Optical Zoom (70x intelli zoom) We know that a powerful optical zoom lens is a critical feature in any camcorder so that’s why the Samsung CAMCORDER comes with a 70x intelli zoom (52x optical zoom) 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.

Time Lapse

Time Lapse

The Time-Lapse recording feature is fun and easy to use. By taking still frames at preset intervals and then putting them in sequential order, the Samsung CAMCORDER is able to create a video file that condenses hours of recording such as sunset or sunrise into minutes of viewing.
USB Charging

USB Charging

Simply connect the Samsung CAMCORDER to a PC’s USB port, turn on the PC, and your camcorder will start recharging. This intelligent feature gives you the freedom to shoot, share, and recharge from almost anywhere.

2.7" (67.5mm) LCD

2.7" (67.5mm) LCD

With the wide 2.7" (67.5mm) 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 Samsung CAMCORDER 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.

Very User Friendly

I got this camcorder this morning, and am already recording, and sending clips much easier than with my other camcorder, which by the way, cost almost 4 times as much as this one.

The videos are crystal clear as are the photos. The settings are really easy to adjust. I love this camcorder already. I will probably use my much more expensive camcorder much less now. Thanks for making a great product. The only drawback that I can see is the sound could be just a tad louder. I am sold on Samsung!

samsung digital recorder

I like my recorder because it simple to operate and take pictures. All operating buttons are at your finger tips. When night time comes it adjust automatically , in the night mode.

. I love it, inexpensive, light weight, and has a palm strap that holds the digital camcorder in your hand. This is the best buy for your money.
