Sony Handycam HDR-CX12

CNET
5 September 2014
  • Summary: As the flash-memory-based equivalent of the HDR-SR11, the Sony Handycam HDR-CX12 serves up the same pleasing performance and quality as its hard-drive cousin.
  • Pros: Excellent video performance; impressive still photos for a camcorder; decent manual controls.
  • Cons: No wind filter; USB on dock only, not on camcorder; no viewfinder; smallish LCD.

Great HD handycam with Smile Shutter technology

Good Gear Guide.au
20 October 2008
  • Summary: The HDR-CX12 is a brilliant high-def handycam that is almost impossible to find fault with. It improves on its CX7K predecessor in nearly every area and is easily a match for Sony's high-end HDR-SR12 model. If you don't mind the lack of an inbuilt hard drive, it won't disappoint.
  • Pros: Excellent AVCHD video quality, good performance in dim lighting, 10.1Mp stills mode, Smile Shutter technology, camera control dial for 'hands on' adjustments
  • Cons: No inbuilt memory, not as compact as other flash memory–based models, inclusion of superfluous buttons

Sony Handycam HDR-CX12

PhotoReview
1 September 2008
  • Summary: An HD camcorder that records only to flash memory and is designed for point-and-press video photographers.The Handycam HDR-CX12 is similar in size and styling to the HDR-CX7 model, which it replaces. One of a rapidly-growing class of camcorders that record exclusively to flash memory (in this case Memory Stick Pro Duo), it's also the first camcorder with Smile Shutter technology.
