Fund Raiser Executive Assistant: Sony HDR-SR12 5.0MP Handycam

Personal Electronics buzz

  • Excerpt: I am the director of fund raising for our church schools. The cost of private education even with tuition has risen dramatically. Our teachers are paid poorly and we need to improve their plight. In addition, it is essential we offer our students advanced technology resources which cost a pretty penny.

Sony Handycam HDR-SR12 review

29 October 2008
  • Summary: Although the Sony Handycam HDR-SR12 is a very good HD camcorder, it costs far more than HD camcorders that deliver similar quality and features. The key question for potential buyers is whether massive storage capacity and great-quality video hold justify the higher price.

Sony HDR-SR12 Review

22 May 2008
  • Conclusion: The Sony Handycam HDR-SR12 is a slightly mixed bag with the ledger heavily weighted to the positive. Full HD 1920 x 1080I videos taken outdoors were terrific and they’re solid indoors when there’s enough light. Try shooting in very dim rooms and you’ll have problems with digital noise. Audio quality is excellent and the stills are the finest I’ve taken with any camcorder.
  • Pros: Full HD 1920 x 1080 120GB AVCHD HDD Camcorder
  • Cons: Expensive; weak low-light performance

Sony HDR-SR12E review

2 July 2008
  • Summary: The recipe for Sony’s new SR12 camcorder is simple: take last year's chart-topping SR8, add more megapixels, extra gigabytes, a larger screen and a longer zoom, then top it all off with an improved sensor and better processor. The result? The SR8 on heat. With a 120 GB hard drive on board it can shoot full 1920x1080i HD video at top quality for an incredible 15 hours. You'd need thirty MiniDV tapes or 15 8GB memory cards to match it.
