Perfect pictures at your fingertips
This i-Function lens is perfect for novices and experts alike. If you're a beginner, shoot confidently like a pro with Lens Priority Mode. This allows your camera to instantly recognize the type of lens you've attached. Now, it will serve up optimal scene modes with i-Scene, while i-Setting optimises all the settings for the perfect shot. If you're already a pro, you can cycle through and adjust shutter speed, aperture, ISO and more - all without taking your fingers off the lens, and your eyes off the shot - simply by pressing the i-Function button and turning the value ring to the desired settings.
Whisper-quiet. Perfect focus
Capture the roar of the crowd and the crack of the bat at a cricket match, but not the whir of autofocusing. The Samsung 18 - 200mm multi-purpose zoom lens has been optimised for movie recording, with a Voice Coil Motor (VCM) that eliminates noisy autofocusing. And since it's a linear motor, it gives you fast zoom tracking - automatically keeping your subject in focus when zooming in or out. Now you can shoot professional-quality video worthy of a Hollywood director, with just your camera.
From arenas to mountains in just one lens
Leave all your other lenses home next time you go to a soccer match or out on a hike. With its incredibly extensive range of focal lengths, the Samsung 18 - 200mm multi-purpose zoom lens is ideal when you need to travel light. Since you won't be swapping out lenses, you won't miss recording that thrilling goal which you can play back again and again. And its 11x zoom lets you easily capture beautiful stills of distant landscapes.
Optical Image Stabilizer for clear, sharp images
Create beautiful images that move you, even if you jostle the camera. The 18 - 200mm zoom lens comes equipped with lens-shift optical image-stabilizing technology. Samsung's optical image stabilizer uses tiny lens-shifts to cancel out motion blur, even in low exposure shots. And since the image is being stabilized externally in the lens, what you see through the viewfinder - and on the display - is perfectly clear.
