Summary: I bought this prior to departing for a trip to Australia. I was very impressed with the quality of the HD videos and the amount of storage. The only negative I've encountered is using it in low light settings. There are occasions when what you are trying to take a photo of won't show up in the screen/view finder.
Summary: Bought this to upgrade my capability for making music videos in our recording studio (Henderson Mountain Recording Studio) here in the Ozark Mountains. We like being able to connect to our audio/video CPU through the USB and connect to the hard drive of the camera. The images are sharp, crystal clear and no blur whatsoever. We intend to buy 2 more for different angle shots to add more interest to the music video. Would highly recommend this model to anyone.
Summary: I am very pleased with this Handycam Camcorder it's everything I will ever need for a camera and video. I can take clear pictures with the 10.2 camera and awesome video's with the Camcorder. Even capture photo's off of the video's and they turn out real clear too. So many features with this video camera that you will have to research yourself but as a owner of it now you can't go wrong.
Summary: I just might have to say that I think that the Sony HDR-SR12 has better sight than I do! The swaying from when you turn the camera doesnt get all mushed together it just stay in a really nice picture, night vision is just simply outstanding, hard drive is more than enough, you always have to stay with the 1080p, zoom makes it stay perfect and you can barely tell you are shaking if you do not have a tripod, zoom with night vision isnt so good it just cuts out the light so...
Great camcorder. The best I have ever owned or used.

Summary: Camcorder from the Gods. 120GB hard disc is a massive storage solution to hold all of the crisp high def footage you can take for many many shoots. Easy to use and has a viewfinder! One of the last Sony Camcorders to feature Nightshot infared recording.
Summary: I got this camera 3 weeks ago as used one, not new. I got it with two batteries and since then I did not have to charge the batteries yet. Well, I did not use it every day that is true, but still... The camera seems very reliable, I did not encounter any issue with the hard drive as I read it may happen at one point. The changes in the temperature of the locations I used it were not as big, I only used it in warm or hot conditions.
"Excellent HD camcorder with plenty of storage (120GB)"

Pros: excellent video quality, excellent macro mode from a tripod; remote control offers professional work from a light tripod; 120GB hard disk, never have had any storage problem on vacation; excellent lens with no barrel distortion at all; good white balan
Cons: The lens is starting from 40/37 mm and a wide lens is necessary to attach for achieving wide angle, however the tele range is excellent - movie mode 40mm - 480mm, still Image mode 37mm - 444mm (35mm equiv) Some of the white balance presets are having min
Summary: This is a great camera. I now own 3 of these cameras. I do video projects on the side, and I am very happy with this camera. I have placed the VCL-HG0737C Wide conversion lens on each of the cameras. I also have a VCL-HG1737C Telephoto lens (little to no, vignette). I also have VCL-R2037 telephoto lens (noticable, vignette). The camera takes great photos as well. You are even able to take photos while videoing (takes several seconds to process).
Summary: I already owned the SR11 so was familiar with the camera before the purchase. The SR12 just has more hard drive capability. Yeah! Amazing Tech went out of their way to ensure that I got this camera on time and quickly for an upcoming shoot. I want to let them know how happy I am with them and the camera. I don't typically buy used electronics but this camera has worked perfectly and looks just fine. Thank you Amazon.
