Warning—situations that could cause injury to yourself or others Do not disassemble or attempt to repair your camera. This may result in electric shock or damage to the camera. Do not use your camera near flammable or explosive gases and liquids. This may cause a fire or explosion. Do not insert flammable materials into the camera or store these materials near the camera. This may cause a fire or electric shock. Do not handle your camera with wet hands. This may result in electric shock. Prevent damage to subjects’ eyesight. Do not use the flash in close proximity (closer than 1 m/3 ft) to people or animals. If you use the flash too close to your subject’s eyes, this can cause temporary or permanent eyesight damage. Keep your camera away from small children and pets. Keep your camera and all accessories out of the reach of small children and animals. Small parts may cause choking or serious injury if swallowed. Moving parts and accessories may present physical dangers as well. Do not expose the camera to direct sunlight or high temperatures for an extended period of time. Prolonged exposure to sunlight or extreme temperatures can cause permanent damage to your camera’s internal components. Avoid covering the camera with blankets or clothes.

Glossary
ACB (Auto Contrast Balance) This feature automatically improves the contrast of your images when the subject is backlit or when there is a high contrast between your subject and the background. AEB (Auto Exposure Bracket) This feature automatically captures several images at different exposures to help you capture a properly-exposed image. AF (Auto Focus) A system that automatically focuses the camera lens on the subject. Your camera uses the contrast to focus automatically. Aperture The aperture controls the amount of light that reaches the camera’s sensor. Camera shake (Blur) If the camera is moved while the shutter is open, the entire image may appear blurred. This occurs more often when the shutter speed is slow. Prevent camera shake by raising the sensitivity, using the flash, or using a faster shutter speed. Alternately, use a tripod, the DIS or OIS function to stabilize the camera. Composition Composition in photography means arranging objects in a photo. Usually, abiding by the rule of thirds leads to a good composition. DCF (Design rule for Camera File system) A specification to define a file format and file system for digital cameras created by the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA). Depth of field The distance between the nearest and farthest points that can be acceptably focused in a photograph. Depth of field varies with lens aperture, focal length, and distance from the camera to the subject. Selecting a smaller aperture, for example, will increase the depth of field and blur the background of a composition. Digital zoom A feature that artificially increases the amount of zoom available with a zoom lens (Optical zoom). When using the Digital zoom, the image quality will deteriorate as the magnification increases.

Appendixes 114

Glossary
DPOF (Digital Print Order Format) A format for writing printing information, such as selected images and number of prints, on a memory card. DPOF-compatible printers, sometimes available at photo shops, can read the information from the card for convenient printing. EV (Exposure Value) All the combinations of the camera’s shutter speed and lens aperture that result in the same exposure. EV Compensation This feature allows you to quickly adjust the exposure value measured by the camera, in limited increments, to improve the exposure of your photos. Set the EV compensation to -1.0 EV to adjust the value one step darker and 1.0 EV to one step brighter. Exif (Exchangeable Image File Format) A specification to define an image file format for digital cameras created by the Japan Electronic Industries Development Association (JEIDA). Exposure The amount of light allowed to reach the camera’s sensor. Exposure is controlled by a combination of the shutter speed, the aperture value, and ISO sensitivity. Flash A speed light that helps to create adequate exposure in low-light conditions. Focal length The distance from the middle of the lens to its focal point (in millimeters). Longer focal lengths result in narrower angles of view and the subject is magnified. Shorter focal lengths result in wider angles of view. Histogram A graphical representation of the brightness of an image. The horizontal axis represents the brightness and the vertical axis represents the number of pixels. High points at the left (too dark) and right (too bright) on the histogram indicate a photo that is improperly exposed.

Appendixes 115

Glossary
H.264/MPEG-4 A high-compression video format established by international standard organizations ISO-IEC and ITU-T and developed by the Joint Video Team (JVT). This codec is capable of providing good video quality at low bit rates. Image sensor The physical part of a digital camera that contains a photosite for each pixel in the image. Each photosite records the brightness of the light that strikes it during an exposure. Common sensor types are CCD (Charge-coupled Device) and CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor). ISO sensitivity The sensitivity of the camera to light, based on the equivalent film speed used in a film camera. At higher ISO sensitivity settings, the camera uses a higher shutter speed, which can reduce blur caused by camera shake and low light. However, images with high sensitivity are more susceptible to noise. JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) A lossy method of compression for digital images. JPEG images are compressed to reduce their overall file size with minimal deterioration of the image resolution. lCD (liquid Crystal Display) A visual display commonly used in consumer electronics. This display needs a separate backlight, such as CCFL or LED, to reproduce colors. Macro This feature allows you to capture close-up photos of very small objects. When using the macro feature, the camera can maintain a sharp focus on small objects at a near life-size ratio (1:1). Metering The metering refers to the way in which the camera measures the quantity of light to set the exposure. MJPEG (Motion JPEG) A video format which is compressed as a JPEG image. Noise Misinterpreted pixels in a digital image that may appear as misplaced or random, bright pixels. Noise usually occurs when photos are shot with a high sensitivity or when a sensitivity is automatically set in a dark place.

Appendixes 116

Glossary
OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) This feature compensates in real-time for shaking and vibrating while shooting. There is no image degradation compared to Digital Image Stabilization feature. Optical zoom This is a general zoom which can enlarge images with a lens and does not deteriorate quality of images. Quality An expression of the rate of compression used in a digital image. Higher quality images have a lower rate of compression, which usually results in a larger file size. Resolution The number of pixels present in a digital image. High resolution images contain more pixels and typically show more detail than low resolution images. Shutter speed Shutter speed refers to the amount of time it takes to open and close the shutter, and it is an important factor in the brightness of a photo, as it controls the amount of light which passes through the aperture before it reaches the image sensor. A fast shutter speed allows less time to let light in and the photo becomes darker and more easily freezes subjects in motion. Vignetting A reduction of an image’s brightness or saturation at the periphery (outer edges) compared to the center of the image.

...Samsung Group (Hangul: 삼성그룹; Hanja: 三星그룹; Korean pronunciation: [sam.sʌŋ ɡɯ'ɾup̚]) is a South Korean multinational conglomerate company headquartered in Samsung Town, Seoul. It comprises numerous subsidiaries and affiliated businesses, most of them united under the Samsung brand, and is the largest South Korean chaebol. Samsung was founded by Lee Byung-chul in 1938 as a trading company. Over the next three decades the group diversified into areas including food processing, textiles, insurance, securities and retail. Samsung entered the electronics industry in the late 1960s and the construction and shipbuilding industries in the mid-1970s; these areas would drive its subsequent growth. Following Lee's death in 1987, Samsung was separated into four business groups – Samsung Group, Shinsegae Group, CJ Group and Hansol Group. Since the 1990s Samsung has increasingly globalised its activities, and electronics, particularly mobile phones and semiconductors, has become its most important source of income. Notable Samsung industrial subsidiaries include Samsung Electronics (the world's largest information technology company measured by 2012 revenues),[2] Samsung Heavy Industries (the world's second-largest shipbuilder measured by 2010 revenues),[3] and Samsung Engineering and Samsung C&T (respectively the world's 15th- and 63nd-largest construction companies).[4] Other notable subsidiaries include Samsung Life Insurance (the world's 14th-largest life insurance company),[5]......

... Since 1997, Samsung has pursued a bold combination of strategies which have allowed it to innovate & produce higher-quality products across all the categories. Those strategies are mentioned below in detail: A. Vertical Integration – manufacturing continued to remain Samsung’s core competence as always. Samsung believed that if it got out of manufacturing then it would loose the edge since everyone could get the same technology but not everyone was capable of making an advanced product. Farming out manufacturing operations would expose Samsung to inventory risks thus its fate would be in the hands of its suppliers and to prevent that, between 1998 and 2003, Samsung invested $19 billion in new chip factories, $17 billion was invested in 2003 in new manufacturing facilities for LCDs used in flat-screen TVs and such. Samsung not only manufactured for customers internal to the company but also external customers, which included Apple, Sony, etc. so as to ensure that its plants remained competitive. The company was also savvy about its choice of plant locations; for example, to keep costs low, it operated manufacturing plants in China, however R&D facilities were set up in India to take advantage of country’s low cost human capital. Samsung also avoided the commoditization trap that allowed the company to command premium margins by manufacturing special order items such as memory chips for Dell, Microsoft and Nokia. B.

...Choosing Personality as the next level of Brand Meaning: Samsung Electronics Company has proved to be a leading technology based company which has a strong design team. But the technological innovations are becoming too common. People have seen these new technologies in different devices that they use. So in order to differentiate from the rest of the market, Samsung should improve its personality by telling a compelling story appealing to the emotions of customers and attract them. Recommendations: FCB has done a wonderful job of segmenting the market into accelerators, turning point and advanced. Samsung should conduct further research in each of these market segments and create a detailed segmentation of customers who can be targeted by creating a personality for Samsung. Conducting campaigns like “Samsung DigitAll-Everyone’s Invited” are first step in this process. More of these campaigns should be formulated giving importance to the cultural aspects of a specific country and should be promoted in each country independently. With the advent of new technologies, electronic devices have become very complex. Samsung can build a personality by differentiating itself from the rest of the brands by making products that are simple to use but which deploy latest complex technologies. While advertising, focus should be given more on explaining the personal benefits and experiences of using a Samsung product than the technology behind them. This will make the consumer to......

...I. SIEGEL JAMES JINHO CHANG Samsung Electronics Introduction Kun Hee Lee, chairman of the Samsung Group, contemplated his company’s strategy while sitting in the basement office of his home. His office had a one hundred-inch screen on the wall, and in front of the screen there was a short desk, just one foot in height. Lee spent much of his day in this room, studying the strategies of his competitors and overseeing multibillion-dollar investment decisions. Beside his desk were hundreds of DVDs and videos, many examining his competitors’ histories and strategies. Every new product made by Samsung and its competitors sat along the walls. Trained as an engineer, Lee eagerly picked apart every product, examining its design and quality of manufacturing.1 As he sat next to his low desk and sipped a cup of Korean green tea, Lee wondered whether his legion of Samsung employees was following his stern advice to always demand superiority in product design and process efficiency. He had grave concerns about complacency in his company. He remembered how he mentioned in a senior management meeting: “To an outsider, reprimanding a manager whose division racked up [billions of dollars] in profit might seem bizarre. But I don’t see it that way. Our abilities and efforts did play a role in our success, but we must realize that most of it came from the leading companies’ negligence, pure luck, and our predecessors’ sacrifice.”2 Under Lee’s leadership, Samsung had risen to become the......

The company developed a very specific strategy: * Investment in production process in order to increase productivity : the main goal being to produce more quickly with less mistakes * Leading in frontier product : always be the leader in technology * Quality control : always focus on the quality of the products * Human resources : stimulating environment by a meritocratic system based on incentive programs In 2005, the arrival of firms companies in the memory chip market is threatening Samsung´s leadership. More specifically, the global memory industry is a sector with a little number of powerful suppliers and various price-conscious customers. Like Samsung in the 80´s, new Chinese companies are creating a fierce competition, willing to sacrifice profits in order to get market share. Those companies got industry experience by creating leadership and managed to build high value facilities by raising international financing. In spite of the American and Taiwanese´s blockade, the government created incentive for other foreign countries by creating an attractive environment.
