Taking professional-quality pictures is now as easy as smiling for one. The intuitive i-Function lens gives you quick and easy, one-touch access to all your camera’s manual settings. Adjust shutter speed, aperture and more with just a twist of the lens while previewing the image in real-time. Now you can see how your settings affect the shot before you take it. Whether you’re an enthusiast or an expert, the convenient i-Function lens truly revolves around your photographic needs.
Image changes from angle of view
Angle of View is the area of a scene that can be seen through the lens. This changes as you zoom through the range of focal lengths: 18mm, 24mm, 42mm, and 55mm.
Optical Image Stabilizer for clear, sharp images
Create beautiful images that move you, even if you jostle the camera. The 18-55mm 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.
Fast AF that captures life in an instant
A revolutionary, new type of camera calls for a lens design equally as cutting-edge, such as the lightweight 18-55mm zoom lens. Optimised for Samsung’s compact system cameras, its quick and accurate contrast AF (Auto Focus) focuses in an incredible approx. 170ms* (0.17 seconds). Now you can capture even the most spontaneous moments in astonishing detail, and turn unexpected, had-to-be-there moments into memories of a lifetime.
Tested under Samsung's standard conditions and may vary depending on camera firmware and camera settings.
