Sony HDR-SR12

The Sony HDR-SR12 is Sony’s highest-end high definition hard drive camcorder. It features a number of upgrades over last year’s model, including a 120GB hard drive capacity and face recognition technology. It is identical to its lower cost cousin, the HDR-SR11, except for the amount of hard disk storage (60GB on the HDR-SR11).

Other upgraded features include 1920x1280 (5.6 megapixel) video capture at 16Mbps, a 3.2 in. LCD touch screen and 10.2 megapixel still image capture. The unit features a 1/3” CMOS image sensor chip and a 12X zoom Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens. The lens features a 37mm filter diameter, a focal length of 4.8mm – 58.8mm, and an aperture range of f/1.8 – f/3.1. The unit can display directly to an HDTV and record directly to DVD using Sony’s stand-alone DVD recorder.
The HDR-SR12 also features hybrid storage, accepting Sony’s MemoryStick Duo/Pro Duo memory cards. [read more details]
