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.

Excellent for carrying along.
I am very happy with its features and the image quality. One thing is missing though, a viewfinder. Still, it's a super camera.
Excellent product, but still missing potential.
This is a very well made camera. The build quality is superb, and the photos it can take are stunning. The on-board quick photo editing suites are excellent if you can make the right use for them.
One of my favourite software features is the Wi-Fi sharing, but this is where there is a lack of fuffilled potential. As of writing this review, on Sunday the 19th of January, The Wi-Fi sharing capabilities are hindereied by the lack of places to share to. You can share photos and videos to Facebook, Picasa, Youtube and Skydrive. While these will suffice for the moment, there are many places that the camera should be able to share to, such as Dropbox, Google drive, or any of the other similar cloud services. Along with other social media sites, such as Twitter, Google+, and Tumblr. I am happy with all of the pictures I have taken with this camera, because of how well done both the hardware and software (image processing) have been made. Overall, This product is one of the best cameras I have used. Congratulations to samsung for the amazing product. (Other features worth mentioning that I haven't had too much need for use of or have had enough experience to review fully but have been excellent when I have used them: Articulating Screen, AMOLED Screen, Built in Lens i-Function.) Photos Below Captured and edited only with On-board software. (Can't wait to start editing with the included Adobe Photoshop Lightroom software!)Show more +
amazing camera and quality
amazing quality pictures every time, can't beat it! amazing camera would recommend it to everyone.
Use the camera
Don't just leave this in 'auto' mode although you will still get excellent pictures, it is well worth spending an hour or two with the downloaded information from Samsung and getting to know the workings of the camera really well.
I did this and my first purchase afterwards was a tripod. I now go out and look at things with an eye to composition rather than just 'snap and shoot.', not that there is anything wrong with doing just that, this camera will accommodate both disciplines. Just using 'auto' mode is like buying a Jag and then tooling around in first gear, opening it up will give you the full experience, same with the NX300, open it up and see what it, and you, can do.Show more +
