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.

SMART CAMERA NX300

Features

  • Fast and powerful, the Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300 allows you to quickly and perfectly capture spontaneous, even magical, moments throughout your day

Taking the sensor to the next level

Taking the sensor to the next level
Advanced 20.3M APS-C CMOS Sensor Worthy of professional photographers, but made for the enthusiast, the 20.3MP APS-C CMOS sensor—now with Phase detection AF—delivers quality images and lifelike colours with a high resolution in its class. It’s also great for out-focusing photography, thanks to the large sensor used in the NX300 mirror less camera. The sensor, which measures 23.5mm x 15.7mm, collects light so you can create beautiful images with reduced noise, even in low-lit situations.

Capture with great clarity and speed

Capture with great clarity and speed
Advanced Hybrid AF System The hybrid AF (autofocus) system combines Phase detection AF and contrast AF for fast and accurate autofocusing. Phase detection AF nearly instantaneously determines the distance of your subject, while contrast AF fine-tunes the focus for outstanding contrast. Enabled by short shutter lag, the hybrid AF System allows you to shoot accurate, sharply detailed images fast.

Everything about the camera is fast, including the interface

Everything about the camera is fast, including the interface
Hybrid UI (Touch & 5 Way Key) Variation The NX300 offers multiple options, even for navigating the menu on the 3.31"(84.0mm) WVGA screen. The intuitive Hybrid Touch User Interface combines a 5-way button with a touchscreen so you can quickly select menu options to apply effects, share images, input text and more. Whether you’re tapping the screen or moving the cursor around, everything you do is easy and fast.

Capture the moments within a moment

8.6fps Continuous Shooting When you’re shooting fast-moving action such as a tennis player stretching for a shot at the net, the NX300 helps you to effortlessly capture the entire sequence with a series of brilliantly clear stills. The NX300 lets you shoot continuously at an ultra-fast rate of 8.6 frames per second to help ensure you get the shot you want. The advanced autofocus system helps to bring crystal clarity to fast-moving subjects, and a short shutter release lag helps you capture the fleeting moment before the subject moves out of frame.

Designed to capture attention with retro modern style

Designed to capture attention with retro modern style
Retro Modern Design Taking its cues from the simplicity of vintage camera design and from innovation, the design of the NX300 impresses with elegant, flowing lines and a luxuriously textured feel. It’s crafted from sturdy metal, yet is compact and lightweight for easy on-the-go shooting. Sharp edging presents a sleek silhouette when viewed from above, while an ergonomic design helps ensure a safe and steady grip.

You can also hold the camera over a crowd for a high-angle shot and see exactly what you’re getting. Shooting from a variety of angles can also make for more exciting photo albums.

A dedicated Direct Link hot key lets you quickly and wirelessly send images to a compatible mobile phone, tablet, PC or Smart HDTV—directly from your camera. It’s great for sharing moments with friends, family and your favourite social network sites*. The Samsung NX300 also includes Dual band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) support so you can connect fast and with stability to wireless networks around you.
Wide Range ISO (100~25,600)

Wide Range ISO (100~25,600)

Capturing natural-looking images indoors, or outside at night, can require a higher ISO than most cameras allow. The NX300 lets you shoot up to ISO 25,600 making it twice as sensitive to light as the previous Samsung model—so you can snap speed photos with minimal noise and blurring, even in low light.
Smart Mode

Great user friendly action packed camera

One of the best colour managing processors. Used the camera for a number of shoots with great results. Once I got used to the screen as a viewfinderthis camera is one of my favourites in the bag.

Compares well with the DSLRs. Great technology using with smartphone and tablet.
