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.

3.0" VGA AMOLED Display Whether you’re sunbathing on a beach or sightseeing in the middle of the day, bring along the WB850F. Its thin and light 3.0" VGA AMOLED display serves up darker blacks and more vibrant colors than conventional TFT-LCD screens. From any angle, images are sharper, more vivid, and easier to view, even under the glare of the midday sun.

16.2 Megapixels BSI CMOS sensor A tropical sunset, a cityscape at night… perfectly capture dimly lit moments wherever you travel with the WB850F. It features a 16.2-megapixel BSI (Back Side Illuminated) CMOS sensor, which needs less light for proper exposure than conventional CMOS sensors and CCD sensors. So even if a moment is lit only by the moon’s soft white glow, with the WB850F, your photos will be sure to match your memories.

Very good Camera

This is a great little camera, but remember to download the file from Samsung and you won't have anymore problems with a flat battery I downloaded the update for this camera and everything has been perfect since, battery lasts for ages now.

Great allrounder

I bought this camera as an alternative to my SLR which is a bit bulky and heavy to carry everywhere. So far it has exceeded expectations and got me some shots that my SLR would not.

Used full zoom to take pictures of various people on stage in quite low light. Results are excellent - no shake and good exposure. Same with the video functions and the sound is good enough for a small device. Panorama mode works well - no visible joins. Loaded the remote viewfinder onto a Galaxy S phone and it works well.

panorama one sweep,wifi communications,editing in camera features,

I bought this camera to substitute for a dslr in tricky situations..I find it ideal .In some cases better.Liket the one sweep panorama.I do not haveto worry about the joins in the photograph.

Then being able to send it home straight to my printer ,which has its own email adress.or to my android pad which can also control the camera .With a remote viewfinder app from the app store.Another app is mobile link so you can send pictures to your mobile phone or your android pad gallery.You can send pictures straight to your computer without wires.Scene modes are exellent.One thing I would like to have seen on this camera is motion photo.On this camera we must not forget the exellent lens.23 wide angle 22x zoom gives fantastic photos at all lengths.My friends think the compass and gps function are great (never forget where you took the photo).This feature could be improved on.You have to load map imformation from the web site.With sat nav technology surley you could put a chip with the map imformation on it.Final words samsung are not as well known as the big camera boys but they are showing the way forward in compact digital cameras.Well worth 5 stars.

Excellent camera, so-so support

The camera is awesome! Excellent picture quality and great features. Updating the firmware doesn't work the way Samsung says it should however. Theysay unplug from the PC and push the shutter (OK) button.

This camera has 1 of each and pushing either one does nothing. Then the camera is suppoosed to turn itself off. Mine stayed on till the battery ran down. However, when I attached the power cable and turned it on, it updated.
