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.

14M BSI CMOS sensor & Low Light Shot A sunset beach party, a dimly-lit dance club — great photo opportunities don’t always have the best lighting.

24mm, 18x zoom The whole wide world is yours to capture. Use the 24mm wide-angle lens to capture a quaint row of Tudor houses or a gushing, mile-wide waterfall - it can handle any sweeping panoramas, even those wider than can been seen with the unaided eye. There’s also an 18x Optical Zoom that lets you quickly take stunning close-ups from far away, so you can get sharply rendered images of moving glockenspiel figurines atop a clock tower or of the colourful details of exotic birds in the wildlife park.

AMAZING

I read a bunch of reviews on this camera, some saying it's an average point and shoot with very cool extras, and how it's not much of an upgrade froma smart phone, people only giving it a 3 star rating, etc.

.. I purchased it because it has features only DSLR's are capable of, the amazing zoom and the touch screen. After buying it, I noticed the picture quality is AMAZING! I am still learning all the features as it's fairly advanced with shutter speed, ISO and tonnes of other options. I am very happy and I would not think twice about looking at a different camera.

Samsung 250 Smart Camera

Love this new camera! Size is perfect to carry in my purse. Takes better pictures than the camera I had with a zoom lense that was so much bigger. Ilove taking pictures of the animals that come through our yard and this camera is fast with the zoom lense, get great photos of them too.
