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.

One of the greatest lens ever made ;)

It's so tiny, doing such a beautiful shots, amazing. BIg aperture, descent boheh, nice design. Everything great. One drawback - CAF is slow, (but better than 20mm 2,8) makes it poor to do movies.

Compact lens thats a perfect partner with my NX10

This small lens is a great all rounder that fits well with my NX10 to keep the whole size of the camera/ lens down to a pocket sized fit so you get the advantage of a full spec camera and wide aperture lens to give you a pairing similar to massive bulky DSLR's.

The quality of the image is superb giving the advantage of trimming down the waste edges of an image to frame it as it would have been taken with a longer lens. The manual focus make some great shots by offering a very precise point of focus allowing you to have a fall off of focus and blurred areas around your subject.

Wonderful, little lens.....

Use without flash in lower light conditions, out performs my Nikon 50mm f1.8 on my NX300. Makes the NX300 almost pocketable, while capturing excellent images.

You can't beat it for the price!

Winner lens

Research NX lenses and you'll find near universal love for the 30 f2 pancake. It is tiny, light weight, and optically great. Giving a near normal FOVit works great for general photography.

This lens makes an NX camera a wonderful and serious upgrade from a P&S camera without having to add huge size. The f2 aperture will earn its money in lower light where a P&S will struggle and/or us its unflattering flash.
