"Perfect combination of small size and picture quality."4.5 starson by easecorp
Pros: Features are exactly like the SR11 and SR12 except much smaller & lighter. Sony's dimensions are wrong! This camera is the size of the old CX7 ... not the SR11 & 12. Size mattered and I didn't want to compromise quality by going to the TG-1.
Cons: The only reason to choose the CX12 over the SR11 or 12 is size. The SR11 & 12 can record to hard disk or memory stick, while the CX12 is just the memory stick. But when you lose the hard disk, size and weight go with it.
Summary: I'm upgrading from a Sony HD mini DV camera - just don't want to deal with tapes any more. This camera is much smaller lighter and has all the quality the previous HD miniDV camera has. Excellent picture.
