The palm-sized Sony HDR-CX12 Handycam camcorder is the worlds first camcorder with both Face Detection and Smile Shutter technology. In addition to capturing 1920 x 1080 Full High Definition8 video resolution and 10.2 megapixel still images to Memory Stick PRO Duo media 1 , the HDR-CX12 can use Smile Shutter to detect smiles and shoot still images even while simultaneously recording video.
1920x1080 Recording8 Record stunning, incredibly detailed video footage in the clarity of 1920 x 1080 Full High Definition8 resolution. 10.2 megapixel still image capture Carry only one compact camera for both video and still. Capture up to 10.2 megapixel still image for high resolution digital photos. Memory Stick PRO Duo Media1 Capture still images directly onto Memory Stick PRO Duo media1 (4GB4 included) for easy transfer to PCs for emailing, printing, or sharing with other compatible Memory Stick devices (sold separately). Smile Shutter technology Smile Shutter technology lets the camcorder automatically take still photos when your subject smiles, even while shooting High Definition video. You can also set the Smile Shutter sensitivity and choose child, adult, or auto priority. Face Detection for Video Footage and Digital Still Photos Made possible by the BIONZ image processing engine, 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. 5 Megapixel ClearVid CMOS Sensor (with Exmor -derived technology) and BIONZ Image Processor Sonys newly designed CMOS image sensor delivers bright, vivid, and spectacularly detailed 5 megapixel (effective) video footage, as well as 10.2 megapixel still images -- all with prolonged battery life. 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. BIONZ Image Processor The advanced Sony BIONZ Image Processor uses hardware-based Large Scale Integrated (LSI) circuitry that improves camera response time, screens out noise before RAW data conversion, handles Dynamic Range Optimization processing, and prolongs battery life. Exmor Imaging Sensor Exmor technology captures video and still photo images with high resolution, high sensitivity, and exceptional detail. Advanced on-sensor A/D conversion yields rich tonal reproduction with high signal-to-noise ratio. 2.7" Wide5 (16:9) Hybrid Touch Panel Clear Photo LCD Plus Display (211K Pixels) The 2.7" Wide5 (16:9) LCD screen provides exceptional viewing clarity with improved resolution (211K pixels). The display rotates up to 270 degrees for multiple viewing angles, as well as provides sharp, detailed images for monitoring or playback. The widescreen format makes shooting in 16:9 mode and composing shots even easier. Dual Record While recording video in High Definition8 you have the ability to capture still images directly to Memory Stick PRO Duo media1 (4GB 4 included).
