42nd Street Photo Recommends the Sony HDR-SR 12Posted on January 16th, 2009
When it comes to true high definition video, it doesn’t get much better than the Sony HDR-SR-12 digital camcorder. Perhaps the best feature of the SR 12, in terms of convenience, is the 120GB of hard disk space on board the unit. Many people worry about running out of space or not being able to shoot enough video on a high resolution, but with 120 gigabytes ready for you, worry not. Additionally, this saves the hassle of carrying tapes or mini-DV discs. Just pack up the camera and you’re ready to roll.
Although the 1920 x 1080 resolution is a great perk, they don’t stop there. Great resolution means nothing without great translation of real life motion capture, and the SR 12 captures colors brilliantly. From all the talk about the SR 12, many people will tell you not to bother looking into technical specs, and let your eyes be the true judge of quality. To add to the visually stunning video the SR 12 captures, it’s body design is equally sleek and sophisticated.
The Sony HDR-SR 12 has 48 hours of continuous recording at lower definition settings, and 14 hours at its impressive 1920 x 1080 resolution. If that wasn’t enough, it can store 8GB worth of video or pictures on a Pro Duo memory stick, which makes transfering files very easy (as if simply pluging your camcorder onto your computer wasn’t simple enough for transfering files).
All in all, the Sony HDR-SR 12 is a sure bet for anyone, whether you’re a professional, student or just want to capture some fond family memories. For more information on the SR-12, please visit 42nd Street Photo on the web.
