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.

Love this wifi camera

I am by far no computer or camera genius. Retired but active. I took my camera with me to my sons wedding and stood behind the professional photographer (after ceremony ).

Yesterday , linked my camera to my wifi and sent the pictures to my son directly from the camera to his email. You can only send 7at a time this way, I'm sure there has to be an even faster way but haven't had a lot of time to play with all the features this camera offers. Honestly if I can work this anyone that can see will have no trouble using this right out of the box. There is only one thing I would add to the camera and that is something to cover the screen on the back

Samsung NX300

The Camera is quick to turn on and capture, but it is also depending on the speed of your SD card and all the assistance menus must be turned off. The picture is cleared and brilliant given it is out door with good lighting, but it is hard to see on your display screen under bright light).

I find that automatic setting giving me a green tint and dark picture ( I am comparing the picture to my 7D). The external flash is a joke and i cannot find a better external flash with ETTL. The video recording button is small and it is at an awkward place. For some reason mine came with a 20-50mm lense and no IOS, which is not a good kit lense given Samsung is new in the camera business and should provide more "bang for the buck" kit lense like the 18-55 or even 16-50mm. Over all, the camera is good and taking quality everyday picture.
