The Sony HDR-SR12 is a MiniDV Handycam® Camcorder which weighs1 lb 6oz (650g) with Battery and measures 3 3/8 x 3 x 5 1/2 inch (83x76x138mm). Sony HDR-SR12 comes with a 120GB Non-Removable Hard Disk Drive. Users may also use Memory Stick Duo™ Media, Memory Stick PRO Duo™ Media to record/store mode videos. The SonyHDR-SR12 features SteadyShot® image stabilization feature which helps to capture sharp, clear, detailed video. This camcorder comes with a 3.2“ Wide(16:9) XtraFine™ LCD screen that displays sharp, bright, photo-quality images. With nearly 1 megapixel (921K pixels) resolution and a wide viewing angle, this XtraFine LCD™ screen is like having a high-resolution video and photo viewer built into the camcorder. Sony HDR-SR12's Carl Zeiss Vario Sonnar T lenses are designed specifically for compact camcorders, and utilize precision ground optics to maintain the sharpness and contrast found with larger lenses. The additional T coating further reduces unwanted glare and flare for increased contrast and color. Sony HDR-SR12 is powered by rechargeable Lithium Ion batteries which are not subjected to a life shortening ”Memory Effect“. Sony HDR-SR12 's AccuPower meter displays the battery time remaining in minutes, in either the viewfinder or on the LCD screen. Sony HDR-SR12 features the Tele Macro Function which help subjects stand out by properly focusing the subject while leaving the background unfocused.

Sony HDR-SR12 can record videos with a clarity of up to1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution. Sony's Face Detection technology recognizes up to 8 faces anywhere in the frame and automatically controls focus, exposure, and color to help capture smiling faces brightly and clearly. Face Detection also helps make skin tones look natural without affecting other colors in the image. This camcorder is also equipped with a 5 Megapixel ClearVid™ CMOS Sensor (with Exmor™ Technology) and BIONZ™ Image Processor which can deliver detailed 5 megapixel (effective) video footage, as well as 10.2 megapixel still images. The Exmor™ technology captures images with high resolution and high sensitivity. In addition, the advanced Sony BIONZ™ image processor improves camera response time and screens out noise so the signal from each pixel is as pure as possible.
